Churches set up Halloween activities

Woodward, Okla. — Churches around Woodward have a plethora of Halloween festivities planned.

One area church is getting a head start as Mooreland's First United Methodist Church, 302 S. Elm St.  will be hosting its 5th Annual Halloween Carnival this Saturday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The carnival will include a variety of classic games from a bean bag toss and ring toss to a duck pond to balloon darts.  There will also be a cake walk as well as other refreshments and candy.

But many churches will be waiting until Halloween night itself on Oct. 31 for their events.

Woodward First Baptist Church, 202 East Hanks Trail, will be having their Kid Fest from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event will feature trunk-or-treating, in which children walk around the church parking lot trick or treating at church goers vehicles. The First Baptist Church also plans to have hot chocolate, cookies and face painting at the event as well.

Woodward Church of Christ, 1315 Hanks Trail, will also have trunk-or-treating from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Likewise, Lincoln Avenue Baptist at 1620 Lincoln Ave. will have trunk-or-treating from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., as well as games and activities for kids to partake in. Each trunk will have a game for children to play before they win candies.

Mooreland's First Baptist Church at 418 Elm St. will be holding a Bible hero reenactment in which patrons will be taken on tours to see 4 different Bible scenes featuring biblical heroes such as Samson and Noah.  The event will also feature a Frito chili pie meal as well as candy. The event is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. and is free to attend.

Woodward's First Assembly of God, 3906 Lakeview Dr., has a concert planned for junior high and high school students. The event is sponsored by the church's youth group, The Difference, and will feature hardcore bands such as The Pursuit and Silent Crown. The concert lasts from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and is free to attend. The church will also have games, face painting and treats in the fellowship hall for younger children up to 6th grade.

Woodward's Main Street will also be participating in the Halloween festivities, offering candy, free hot dogs, water, and chips to families who come downtown to trick-or-treat starting at 5 p.m.
