S.H.I.N.E. Family Fall Festival

On Sunday, Oct. 25, kids of all shapes and sizes dressed as princesses, cowboys and Superheroes will converge on EUM Worship Center for S.H.I.N.E., a community wide alternative to traditional Trick or Treat. S.H.I.N.E. is short for Share His Incredible News Everywhere and is hosted by Children’s Ministry at EUM Church. It’s a great way for kids and families from all over Darke County and beyond to participate in a safe, secure event that not only offers the fun, costumes and candy of a traditional Trick or Treat, but also conveys a great message of faith. This year’s theme will be “Marvelous Superheroes.”

The area surrounding the Worship Center will be transformed into a fall festival including a storytelling arena where kids and their parents will move through eight different stations. Each station will tell the story of a real life superhero from the Bible. The kids will be given candy that represents the story just told. By the time they have moved through all stations, each child will not only have collected lots of candy, but more importantly, learn a little more about God’s word.

EUM will have a Superhero photo booth, games, activities and inflatables for kids. There will also be the very popular hayride to the pumpkin patch where every child will pick a pumpkin to decorate. (Weather permitting).

The entire community is invited and welcome. If you have children ages newborn through grade 6, please come and enjoy a free evening of family fun on October 25 at the Worship Center on the corner of Sater and Sebring Warner Roads in Greenville, Ohio. The festival will be open from 4:00-7:00 PM. We will also have free hot chocolate, hot dogs and popcorn available and a chance to win some great door prizes. In the event of rain, S.H.I.N.E. will be moved inside to the Sanctuary. For more information, contact EUM Church, Elaine Snyder at 548-3211 ext. 202 or
