Trick or Treat!

happy halloween

This Sunday, Oct. 26th, is our annual PHUMC Halloween Carnival!  Each year, phyouth ministries organizes the Halloween Carnival in an effort to reach out to our Hillcrest community and invite people into the church in a casual and non-intrusive way.  In addition, we also invite and provide transportation for children staying at Methodist Family Health to participate.  It’s one of the biggest community outreaches that our church does, hosting over 600 kids and their families in 2013.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS – both youth and parents – to help set up, run the carnival booths, and tear down.   We will be in the gym immediately following the 11am worship service and finish up around 5:30pm.  Lunch will be provided for volunteers.  If you can help email Jay or Jennie, or just show up ready to work!

Other Things.

We only have 2 spots left for junior high (Shoal Creek, June 7-11) and 1 spot left for senior high (Blytheville, June 14-20) OMP camps. We will be making a waiting list in case anyone’s plans change. A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot, let Jennie know immediately if you would like to go!
