On October 30 we celebrated our 6th annual Surrey Hills Trunk or Treat. This year we moved the event to the parking lot of our church in Surrey. The location change was amazing as we had access to electricity and bathrooms and had ample space for all the fun!
At GC Surrey Hills, we believe we are better together. So this neighborhood event is only possible thanks to an entire neighborhood coming together. We had a total of 26 sponsors this year!!
Thanks to the generosity of neighbors and neighborhood owned businesses, we were able to have inflatables, 6 professional carnival games, loads of candy, trophies, face painting, and so much more!!
We had more than 20 trunks passing out candy to all the kiddos and we estimate about 3500 attendees for the event!! It was such a joy watching neighbors come together to love and serve one another. The Surrey Hills Lion’s Club joined the fun by volunteering at the carnival games and even the OKC police cadets and Fire Department came.
It was an incredible day of family, community, fun, and relationship. We are so blessed to be able to serve this amazing neighborhood to be a part of it. Our goal isn’t simply to get our neighbors to join our church, but for us to BE the Church to our neighborhood. Jesus builds his Church and we are just so thankful to be able to join him in everything he’s doing in this incredible neighborhood of Surrey Hills!! We passed out more than 30,000 pieces of candy friends!!
I want to give a HUGE shout out to our Love Avenue Team. Every person on the team had a job to do and worked hard to build teams and to make sure the event went smoothly. The music was rocking, the parking crew was grooving, and the trunks and carnival games were popping! Thank you so much to everyone for making this year’s Surrey Hills Trunk or Treat one for the record books! God is so good!
