Stepping Stones: 3rd Grade First Communion Workshop
Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

As we help children prepare to receive Holy Communion for the first time, we support families as they grow in faith. The workshop is geared towards third graders and their parent(s), but is open to all who feel their child is ready to receive this gift. During this workshop we will explore how God’s love is communicated to us through the sacraments, learn how to receive communion, and prepare a special chalice that each student will use during their first communion service. The cost is $10, and scholarships are available.

“Trunk or Treat” ~ Sunday, October 29 ~ 3:00-4:00pm
Oct 29 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Kids of all  ages welcome at Bethlehem’s Trunk or Treat event!

Halloween is such a magical time of dress-up and pretend for kids.  Disciples of all ages can be a part of that fun this year with Bethlehem’s Trunk or Treat event on Sunday, October 29, from 3:00-4:00pm!

Weather-permitting, children of all ages are invited to trick or treat in the church’s back parking lot.  How does this work?  Any disciple can sign up to be a “trunk.”  This means you’ll park your car in our lot, fill the trunk with peanut-free treats and non-scary Halloween decorations, and greet our happy Halloweeners as they parade around! Children, accompanied by a parent, will stop at each trunk and show off their costumes.

The playground and backyard area will serve as home base for families, and story time will be held in the grass.   Also, as part of the afternoon, we’ll be giving back part of our candy load to needy children at Hesed House.

Sign up your “trunk” and/or register your children to particpate in this free event!
