  • 4:00pm Park Your Vehicle and Decorate your Trunk!
  • 4:30pm Trunk-or-Treat begins
  • 5:15pm Games, food, animals, crafts, bounce house – FUN!

What is Trunk or Treat? A great time for children to wear costumes, meet new friends, check out some “terrific trunks”, and collect candy, of course! Following Trunk or Treat, the fun continues with our Fall Festival.  Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come and enjoy, as we celebrate fall with food, games, crafts, petting farm and more!

Trunks Needed: 

Bring your TRUNK! Drive in, park your vehicle, open your trunk, and spread happy smiles as you hand out candy to 400+ children and greet their families. If you’re feeling creative, show us! Decorate your trunk with family friendly decor (nothing scary, please)! (Trunks line-up at 4:00pm, Trunk or Treating is 4:30pm - 5:15pm) Sign up to bring your trunk and hand out candy!

Volunteers Needed:

VOLUNTEER! After Trunk or Treat, you can help us share the love of Jesus with the children by playing games, serving food, or making crafts. Choose the area where you would like to help – Indoor games, Outdoor games, Crafts, Food Prep, Food Serving, Set-up, Clean-up, Registration, or Parking Lot! We also need assistance with obtaining food donations. Getting food donated helps us keep this event FREE for all attending!

Helping out will make you smile (we’ll smile, too)!  If you have questions or other places you'd like to volunteer, contact St. Matthew Children's Ministry: childrensministry@st-matthew.org, or call 248-624-7676 ext. 127. Sign up to Volunteer!

Candy Needed:

We ask those providing trunks to provide their own candy, but sometimes people run out with the hundreds of children coming through! Please let us know if you can donate candy!


Participate! Let us know your family is coming. Our party planners need to make sure we have enough food, candy, games, and crafts! Let us know you're coming!


Contact St. Matthew Children's Ministry: childrensministry@st-matthew.org, or call 248-624-7676 ext. 127.

We look forward to seeing you at the Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat!
