The youth enjoyed a Bible lesson by Cathy Jurgajtis who talked about GLOW - God Lights Our Way. The kids learned a Bible verse and sang “This Little Light of Mine.” They decorated paper sacks for their Halloween treats and started off the games with musical chairs. Sarah and Wes Theuret, brother and sister, vied for the last chair, but Sarah won.
The mummy race was next and the youth tried to wrap their partner in toilet paper before time was up. Jaiden and Kiera Robinson were the best paper wrappers. Then it was time for the costume contest. The high school students served as judges and named Jaiden and Kiera “Best Halloween” for their little old couple costumes. Maddie Audilet was judged “Prettiest” as Dorothy. Seth Mead was named “Scariest” in his Scream costume. Charlie Forbes was judged “Most Original” as an astronaut.
Kerry Schmidt read two spooky stories, Aliens Love Underpants and The Very Noisy Night. Sandwiches, chips, dip, fruit, cupcakes, cookies, rice crispies, punch and homemade chocolate popcorn snack mix were served.
The last game required kids to pass a Lifesaver from toothpick to toothpick. The catch was you have to hold the toothpick with your mouth. It was challenging and fun.
Good Shepherd expresses gratitude to all the parents who helped with the Halloween party; to Cathy Jurgajtis for the Bible study and decorations; to Karen Hayden for the spooky centerpiece, to Kathy Oehlke for rice krispies, to Amy Lee for punch and popcorn, to Debbie Mead and Lisa Theuret for helping set up and clean up.
