Trunk or Treat Tailgate on October 30 – an event with a mission

Join us for Trunk or Treat Tailgate on Sunday, October 30 after the 10:30 am worship service. Reserve a spot to park your vehicle in a designated “tailgate section” and pass out candy to little ones. Bring your grill, cooler, tailgate games and maybe even card games and plan to hang out, mingle and have a great time. Reserving a spot is an easy way to help support mission trips at St. Martin’s. This event has something for all ages!

Event with a mission

This fun event is an easy way to help support mission trips like our recent New Orleans mission trip and City Week. Mission trips at St. Martin’s bring adults and teens together, working side by side to make a difference in the world. This type of ministry opens eyes, hearts and minds to those in need and reminds us of Jesus’ call to love others. It’s part of our DNA at St. Martin’s: “to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith.

Sign up for a spot!

Choose your “spot” for a flat fee donation of $20. You can park your vehicle in the tailgate section starting at 9:30 am on October 30. We’ll have friendly teens and adult volunteers guiding you to your parking spot. Click here to reserve your spot! All proceeds from reserving spots will go directly to mission trip funding.
