Annual Halloween Trunk or Treat

The Monroe Ward Annual Trunk or Treat will be held on the church parking lot on Wednesday, October 30.  The Activities will begin at 5:30. 
This year the Primary will be hosting a Chili cook off so everyone needs to be perfecting their recipe (or purchasing a couple cans) LOL.  We would love for everyone to invite some friends to join us for a little fun. 

We will be serving grilled hotdogs so no one will go away hungry. 

Please feel free to decorate your trunk and be ready to get all of the lovely children all sugared up!  The children (young & old) all love to see all of the trunks decorated, it really adds to the excitement. The trick or treating will begin at 5:30 so please have your trunks ready for all of the little trick or treators. 

Daily Inspiration

I just love reading from these talks a little at a time. 

"Have some of life’s experiences taken from you the believing heart and childlike faith you once had? If so, look around at the children in your life. And then look again. They may be children in your family, across the street, or in the Primary in your ward. If we have a heart to learn and a willingness to follow the example of children, their divine attributes can hold a key to unlocking our own spiritual growth."
—Jean A. Stevens, "Become as a Little Child"

"The scriptures describe a number of Christlike attributes we need to develop during the course of our lives. They include knowledge and humility, charity and love, obedience and diligence, faith and hope. These personal character qualities stand independent of the organizational status of our Church unit, our economic circumstances, our family situation, culture, race, or language."

"There is really no way we can know the heart, the intentions, or the circumstances of someone who might say or do something we find reason to criticize. Thus the commandment: 'Judge not.'"
—Thomas S. Monson, "Charity Never Faileth"
