Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat is coming! Sunday, October 27 at 4:00pm. Trunk or Treat began as a family friendly alternative to Halloween but has grown to be so much more.

With inflatables, games, candy, food, a trackless train, photo ops and so much more, Trunk or Treat is an event for the entire family.

Come join your community, your neighbors, your friends for an evening of laughter and games in a family friendly, safe and secure environment. Trunk or Treat happens rain or shine but please remember, no scary costumes.

Want to spend more time enjoying Trunk or Treat and less time in the registration line? Last year over 1,200 people registered online before the event! Pre-register now! Avoid the long lines, receive your wristbands the week before and enter early the day of Trunk or Treat.

Seek the Lord Monday

On the first Monday of each month we are asking the church to spend intense, focused time seeking the Lord with prayer and fasting until God grants us our next pastor. That fasting is to be understood as something important to you – food, social media, TV, or anything else that would require a sacrifice of you.

The three requests are: 

1. Pastor – Pray for the Pastor Search Committee’s be led by the Spirit to the man God has chosen – Paul Batson, Jason Daugherty, Steve Girsky, Licia Massa, Donna McIntosh, Bob Palmer, and Beverly Parker.

2. Evangelism – Pray that God grant us a pastor who will stoke in us an evangelistic fervor to reach the Clarksville region.

3. Prepare yourself – Pray regarding how you personally need to prepare yourself to follow God on mission now and when the new pastor comes.
