Join us at Epworth UMC for Pumpkin Fest 2020- "Be the Light!" On Sunday, October 18, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm families may sign-up for a slot to attend this fall-themed Messy Church, which will include a costume contest that will be judged virtually; 50 displays for children to work their way through and receive lots of treats; a Family Learning Packet that includes a short lesson and activities to explore our theme, ""Be the Light!"; and an opportunity to practise "being the light" through an outreach activity. Each time slot may accommodate 3 families. When you sign-up, you will not sign-up each child. However, there will be a question which will ask you how many children are attending with your family.
All activities will be outside in the back parking lot of the church, and each family will sign-up for a 30 minute time-slot. Those who are participating in the event will park in the front parking lot or the doctor's parking lot, which is next door. Activities will begin at the the lower end of the church parking lot and go all the way around the back, circling around the entire building before ending up on the upper end of the front parking lot. We will have enough treats for all the children who sign-up and the acitivites/treat displays will allow families to social distance. We do ask that all participants wear a mask, and that everyone work together to social distance, keeping 6 feet apart from other families when participating in the activities. In addition, we ask that families not arrive early and to only exit your car at the time that you have signed-up. With your help, we can create a great event for children to have fun, while still staying safe.
If it should rain, we will move the event to Sunday, October 25, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Those who sign-up will be notified if the event is rescheduled.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the organizer of this event, Teresa Gray, Director of Family Ministries, Epworth UMC. You may email her at [email protected] or call/text at 704-239-3811.
