Coming up, our cities will hand each of us a great opportunity to be on mission: Halloween. Two years ago Evergreen Church started a new tradition on Halloween called trick-or-tailgate. Evergreen Church Covenant Partners hosted tailgates in their driveway for trick or treaters. The opportunity allows us to get to know our neighbors and continue to be on mission in our community. This year we have three host homes: Al and Gayle Gardner, Dale and Jill Turnier, and Margaret and David Bowers. Please feel free to stop by their tailgate to show your support. If you would like to host your own tailgate, here are some fun ideas:

  • Set up lawn chairs and invite neighbors to have a seat
  • Set up a spooktacular mini haunted house 
  • Set up a fun activity like a treasure hunt, or game where a winner gets a prize 
  • Provide snacks-apple cider, hot cocoa bar, hot dogs, pizza, boiled peanuts, bottles of water, etc.
