Fall Festival

Fall Festival

Set up starts at 1:00 p.m.

This year, we have decided to take a leap of faith and try something new at Redeemer.  While we have loved hosting a Trunk-or-Treat these past several years, we would like to try something new for 2019.  Since Halloween is on a Thursday this year, and Celebrate Recovery meets on Thursday nights, we thought this change will give us an opportunity to try a new type of outreach.  We hope everyone still participates and invites friends and neighbors to join us!

Community resources (such as the Library, Celebrate Recovery, and others) will host tables of information.

We are also going to have fun activities for the whole family!
– crafts and games
– bounce house
– trunks of candy to give away
– face-painting
– cake walk and more!

Sign up to help! Sign-ups are in the lobby:
– Lead an activity
– Run the bounce house
– Do face-painting
– Use your vehicle trunk to give out candy!

We also need donations!  Put them in the red bin in the lobby.
– Candy
– Goody bags (for kids collecting candy)
– Face-paint
– Baked goods to use in our cakewalk

Help us invite community organizations & resources to attend: If you know of an organization that supports our community and may want to be included, send that information to [email protected]!

Watch for details to come!

Time: We usually meet the third Sunday of the month at 6:30-8:30 p.m.
