It’s October and that means we are just weeks away from an opportunity to Punk Our Trunks!
The Punk Your Trunk Carnival is an outreach of Mountaintop's Children’s Ministry that, last year, welcomed hundreds from our community to Mountaintop. This year we will be punking our trunks on Sunday afternoon, October 27, and it will take the entire church to make it “punktacular.” Here’s how it works:
Between 4:30 and 6:30pm, the main parking lot will be lined with cars, trucks and SUV’s with trunks decorated and full of candy and goodies for a fun time of “trunk-or-treating.” There will be prizes for best trunks, best costumes, and there will be games and hot dogs and more candy than you can begin to imagine! There is also a rumor circulating that our staff is planning another flash mob dance that will be even better than last year’s Thriller.
Here are four things you might consider to help make this event successful:
We need families, small groups, or groups of friends who can host a booth or a trunk. If you have any questions, need ideas or are ready to sign up just visit Punk Your Trunk.
We need people who aren’t able to host a booth to help by donating candy. You can’t imagine how much candy we will give out. Throughout October you can drop off candy in the green tubs around the church.
We need to get the word out to our friends and neighbors. You can pick up invitation cards at the Guest Services desk and share them with everyone you can.
Consider helping with our cart and traffic team. The parking lot will be busy and we could use traffic directors (you get to wear a cool orange vest and wave an orange flashlight – especially attractive for Clemson, Auburn or Tennessee fans) and cart drivers (you get to drive a cart – especially attractive for Alabama fans who are rolling over everyone). Visit the iServe bar on Sunday morning for more information.
Punk Your Trunk is a gift we give to the community of a safe and fun way to celebrate the season. It’s an awesome opportunity to live out our vision of learning and sharing a better way to live in Christ.
