The Junior High Halloween Lock-in/Night of Spooky Fun is coming up next weekend. Join us on Friday evening, October 27th at 9 p.m. and stay with us until 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, October 28th.
There is going to be an after-dark “Ghost in the Graveyard” in Bent Park, pumpkin carving, and Halloween slime making. We also have some fun games planned for inside the church and Halloween classic movies.
Pizza is going to be provided in the course of the evening, as well as a light breakfast in the morning.
We are asking that parents contribute a snack or beverage. For allergy reasons, we cannot have anything with peanut butter or nuts of any kind. But the more Halloween themed the better!
Costumes are optional. There is going to be a prize for the best costume.
Just keep in mind that costumes need to be appropriate, as we are going to be doing quite a bit of running and moving around. So if your costume isn’t good for that, you might want to bring something else that you can change into.
You’ll also need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and comfy clothes. Remember, we’re going to be at the church for 11 hours. And between midnight and 1 a.m. there probably is going to be a chance to catch some Zs or feed the vampires.
If each student can bring $15 to contribute toward pizza, snacks, and decorations, the Youth Ministry Budget will be appreciative.
If you plan on coming, please RSVP to Youth Ministry Director Alex DeMarco and let him know if you’re planning on bringing any friends as well, because everyone needs to have permission and medical release forms signed by their parents/guardians (mostly on account of the unpredictable ghosts that are known to haunt the church at night).
Even if you’ve told Alex in person that you are coming, please send a quick RSVP by email. It’ll be easier to get a head count for the guillotine pizza if all the names are conveniently in one place.
If you plan on coming, remember to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
