Trunk or Treat Halloween Event
October 31st, 6:00-8:00pm
SCFBC Parking Lot
FREE Family Event!

Trunk or Treat is Santa Clara First Baptist’s big neighborhood outreach of the Fall. On Saturday, October 31st, the Fellowship Hall parking lot will be filled with decorated cars for kids to enjoy in a safe and sane environment. The Roadkill Café will be open to serve food to the hungry kids and parents who have looked forward to this special event the entire day. So, how can you participate?


Got a smile to share and a warm welcome to extend to our guest Trick or Treaters as they arrive? Then you are needed at the Welcome Tent.


Like to see hungry tummies get filled with something more nutritious than candy? Come prepare and serve hot dogs, nachos and other goodies at the Roadkill Cafe.


Got a fun idea for decorating your car? (Even if you don’t have any creative ideas of your own, you can always get an idea from a google search.) Dozens of cars are needed for this event and since Trunk or Treat is on a Saturday this year, you have all day to get your car/s decorated.


One of the big highlights of each year's Trunk or Treat is the huge box maze that is set up in the Fellowship Hall.  Got an  engineering mind?  Just like to be told where to put what by someone who does?  It take many hands to put the maze together.


Like to make the rounds at an event like this? Supervisors are needed at the Box Maze, the inflatable Jump House and Slide. And "Runners" are always needed to refill those car trunks from time to time.


The parking lot needs to be ready for use the next morning, so a team of God’s best is needed to make sure everything is cleaned up and put away.


Candy is always needed to fill containers in car trunks.  Small novelty items are also a big hit with the kids. Beginning October 11th, a tub for your donations will be available in the lobbies of both the Sanctuary and the Fellowship Hall. 

Don’t miss out on the fun and opportunity to reach out to our community. Invite a few families to come join the fun. And most of all, commit this event to prayer that God will use it in a special way to bring kids and their families to Santa Clara First Baptist and ultimately to faith in Christ.

Be sure to sign up at the Lobby by October 25th to serve at this special outreach event!
