Trunk Or Treat

As a safe alternative to Trick or Treating, Good Hope Baptist Church invites the surrounding community to join us for a night of festivity and candy.  “Trunk or Treat” is our church-sponsored fall celebration event. People gather and park their cars on the street or in the parking lot. They open their trunks, or the backs of their vehicles, and decorate them. Then they pass out candy from their trunks. The event provides a safe family environment for trick or treaters, the children of our church and community.  We cannot wait to see the creative trunks and costumes, and we cannot wait to meet you!

    • Yes, you can! We will ask you to adhere to the guidelines we have set to ensure a safe family environment. We would love to have community members volunteer, after all this is an event that is open to the entire community!
