LifeSource Fellowship Ministers to Neighbors »
LifeSource Adventist Fellowship held its yearly Trunk or Treat on October 27, an event created for nearby neighbors of LifeSource. “It was the biggest Trunk or Treat event so far,” said Amy Boulnois, Children’s Ministry leader at LifeSource. “Five hundred and fifteen people came through those doors,” she said as she stood in the Fellowship hall of the church looking toward the doors.
When families came through the door, a photographer was on hand to take a family photo. From there, they progressed through themed rooms, beginning with the barnyard room, where kids played horseshoes and lassoed a cow. When they reached the jungle room, they participated in a banana toss and made jungle animal masks. The tiki room had a large volcano that actually erupted and the kids played limbo. In the space room, they made their way through a giant solar system maze and in the sock hop room. they held a drag race and made their own soda shop hats. Event volunteers were kept busy as excited groups of children and their parents made their way through the rooms.
"This is just one of many outreach activities held each year at LifeSource," said J. Murdock, LifeSource associate pastor. "We value our neighbors and want to make a difference in their lives. For a pastor, it means that our congregation is responsive to the needs of their neighbors."
"One of the things the neighborhood appreciates about Trunk of Treat is having a safe place for the entire family to come and meet together with others from the community and from our church. It also gives us a glimpse of who lives around us and an opportunity to better serve them," commented Dany Hernandez, former LifeSource pastor.
