Waco churches planning Halloween ‘trunk-or-treat’

WACO — Hi!

Brrrr. You can tell November is just around the corner!

After an unusually warm fall (was it just last week?), these 40-ish temperatures sure feel winter-like, don't they?

Someone said the other day that he believes we have only two seasons now – summer and winter. I'm inclined to agree.

You know next week is Halloween and trick or treat for the youngsters. Most of our churches are offering “trunk-or-treat” on that night, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. as an alternative and “safer” way to collect all those treats!

Just so you’ll know, Mrs. Ashley Selby Parker, former first grade teacher at Waco Elementary, has had her baby. Sawyer Finn Parker is here! Now, Solon can officially be called “big brother.” Sawyer almost made it on Mom's birthday, Oct. 27. Congratulations everyone!

Happy birthday wishes go out to Vickie Griggs, Oct. 20; Bill Strong and Andrew Compton, Oct. 23; Scott Brandenburg and Karoline Prichta, Oct. 26; Linda Stanifer, Oct. 28; and Bart Davidson, Oct. 30.

Happy anniversary wishes go out to Charles and Louise Rupard, Oct. 17; Andy and Courtney Dunn. Oct. 23; Calvin and Teresa Marshall, Oct. 26; and Doug and Bonnie Jackson, Oct. 27.

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one!

(It was good seeing you, Rosalie, Judy, Joyce and Patty Jo at the “oh, so fine” Smokehouse Restaurant last Sunday. You have a great establishment, Patty Jo! It was a also a pleasure to see those fine Clark-Moores students on Monday, especially those from good ol’ Waco Elementary. You make us so proud!)

  • 3-2 AdventureMaze1.jpg An aMAZEing afternoon of exploration

    “I’m getting too old for this,” one father exclaimed as his little one tugged his hand toward the entrance of the maze for another go.
    Clad in knee pads and headlamps, a band of young explorers and a few brave adults, made their way through a network of dark tunnels. They passed through a black-light room and finally a triangular overhead bridge before they descended into a belly crawl to come out near where they began.

  • Anthony-Phelps-c.jpg Rejoice in God’s loving kindness this year

    Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
    My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
    Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
    — Psalms 63:3-7
