Trunk-or-Treat and more at Bay United Methodist

The Family Fun Fest features a Pumpkin Patch fundraiser Bay United Methodist’s youth ministry.

Bay United Methodist Church invites the community to their annual Family Fun Fest on Sunday, Oct. 22. The festivities take place after worship service, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., on the church grounds. Kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy trunk-or-treat, a magic show, a bounce house, a straw maze and other games. As a bonus, hotdogs off the grill will be available during the festivities.

The parking lot will be full of vehicles decorated for Halloween and laden with candy. Trunk or Treat participants are members of the church who will be dressed in costume and will offer treats to little ones. Children are invited to wear their costumes as they make their way from trunk to trunk from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

At 12:30 p.m, a magic show unfolds in the Sanctuary. Dr. Kenneth Ladd performs “Magic with a Message” for young and old alike. Dr. Ladd, a retired United Methodist minister, has a Master of Divinity from the United Theological Seminary in Dayton, and a Dr. in Magic from the Academy of Magic in New York City. The magic show will feature large stage illusions, as well as smaller close-up illusions, with audience participation a big part of the performance.

Those who join the activities can also buy pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch, a fundraiser for Bay United Methodist’s youth ministry, the Appalachia Service Project. Each summer, participants of the Appalachia Service Project send youth from the church and the community to areas of Appalachia to help build safer, warmer, and drier homes for those in need.

Bring your family on Oct. 22 to Bay United Methodist Church at 29931 Lake Road for a family-friendly outdoor event after the 10 a.m. worship service. Visit for more information.
