8th Annual Soup & Pumpkins Party

Friday, October 27, 6-8 pm, Follen Community Center


Come one, come all — Follenites and friends! Let’s adorn the church with scores of jack o’ lanterns! 

Come in costume, or come as you are.  

Bring your own pumpkin.

We’ll have tealights for the Jack-o-lanterns, and aprons for carvers. We’ll be lighting the jack o’ lanterns and displaying them on the front steps of Follen Church just after dark. We’ll also have Soup, Witches’ Brew punch and Munchies. 

Please note that this is not a drop off event.  Parents or guardians should plan to stay with their children during the event.  To provide soups or munchies or volunteer your time, please sign up at Coffee Hour after Sunday’s Service.  For questions, contact Sarah Jackson.
