Halloween gives us an opportunity to try on another personality – do you choose to be a monster? A fairy? Something aspirational?
On October 28th, we invite everyone to come in costume, both for the worship service and our UNICEF Carnival. For over forty years, this event has raised funds and awareness for UNICEF – helping to grow healthy children and families around the world.
We will have all the ol' games and amusements, pizza lunch, plus perhaps a few special surprises up our sleeves.
Dozens and dozens of Emersonians come together to make this event happen. You can help Friday night, Sunday morning, or Sunday afternoon, with a few opportunities on the Sundays leading up to the event. See our signups in the Gathering Place or in the weekly E-blast to help grow the joy!
*Volunteer to help–see our online signup at emersonhouston.org/UNICEF2018
*Go through your home’s bookshelves and toy boxes and quiet corners – got any gently-used toys, books, or movies to donate to our Trading Post? This is the wonderful place where children turn in their prize tickets for new-to-them items!
*Consider what you might bake for our Cake Walk! And remember, it does not have to be a cake! Did somebody say lasagna?
