    Default Annual Trunk Or Treat Set At Highland Park Baptist

    Highland Park Baptist Church is sponsoring the annual “Trunk ‘N Treat” event.

    Officials said, "This positive, family event is an alternative to the traditional door to door trick or treating. Bring your little ones, family and friends to the main church parking lot at the corner of Bailey Avenue and Willow Street on Oct. 30 at 6 p.m.

    "Come dressed in your favorite costume and enjoy Christian music by Anthony Evans and the HPBC Hispanic Praise Band. There will be giveaways and, of course, car trunks filled with goodies and treats."

    Highland Park Baptist Church Pastor and Tennessee Temple President Dr. Danny Lovett said, “This annual event gives us the opportunity to reach out and love on the people in our community.”

    At least the kids did not have to take chances on being victimized by walking around a crime infested neighborhood and knocking on strangers doors just to get some snackie wackies.

    I've never seen a visual of what "Trunk & Treat" looks like, so that pic helped. Church members put candy in their truck and little kids go car-to-car collecting candy in the church parking lot? Interesting concept!

    Any idea where/how that first got started? I never heard of it in my HPBC/Temple days of the late '70s-early '80s.

    I don't know where the concept of "Trunk or Treat" got started, but a lot of area churches do it. HPBC started doing it in 2007. In addition to the candy, there's the dunk team, skateboard team, a band or two (Anthony Evans and the Hispanic church band), and some give-aways (bikes, footballs, ?).

    Oh, yeah, they stop occasionally and give the Gospel.

    Did the church take contact information; like have the kids fill out registration cards, so neighborhood evangelism can continue it's course?

    Yes, people had to register to be included in the drawings.

    The concept got started back several years ago when vandals wold break into the trunks of cars during the church services. I believe one of the staff members said "Maybe we should just leave the trunks open so our cars don't get damaged" Eventually it evolved into what we now know as "truck or treat"!

    We had a problem at our (Florida) church - Someone would break into an older car and steal their old battery - then would come back in a couple of weeks to get the new battery that had replaced the old one - They picked on older cars because it was easier to get under the hood.

    The one great fallacy of fundamentalism is that we actually believe that while we are confessing the sins of others that the Lord will not look as intently on our own.

    As I have gotten older, I have tended to become less dogmatic over certain issues: "(1 Cor 2:2 KJV) For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified."

    I would not be such a strong believer in God if not for the enemy.
