What an amazing Fall Family Fun Night we had Sunday night, due to the incredible army of volunteers who made it happen. When we realized the extremely cold weather would cause us to regroup and rethink the set-up, the transition from outdoors to indoors happened without a wrinkle. A tremendously large inflatable took up the entire space of the Fellowship Hall; the kitchen was bustling with cooks and friends putting together an amazing picnic supper. Registration, Face Painting, and Pumpkin Painting took over the Gathering Space, and down the hallway was Apple Bobbing and digging for treasures in the sand. The library was filled with music and laughter as the Cake Walk was a popular event.
And finally, the remaining outside events: A very quick Pumpkin Hunt took place on the side of the building. The Hayride took short, but fun trips around our property, and a donkey even showed up for the children to pet and feed!
We had a very large crowd of friends and neighbors who joined us, many visiting Union for the very first time. Welcoming faces and caring voices greeted them as they walked through the door. Thank you to everyone who was a part of this “inviting event.” God’s love shows up in unexpected places – maybe even on a bounce house slide!
