BEACH LAKE, PA - On Sunday, November 1 from 3:00 until 4:30 p.m., Beach Lake United Methodist Church will hold Trail of Tales, a modified version of its annual Halloween event for the community.
People of all ages are invited to drive through the church parking lot and experience Trail of Tales from the comfort of their car. Beach Lake United Methodist Church is located behind the Beach Lake Fire Hall and visible from Pennsylvania Route 652.
At Trail of Tales, as cars enter the church parking lot, the driver will be given a “passport” including the names of several Bible characters. Cars will be guided to different stations around the parking lot featuring these Bible characters. Each character will present a brief story about his or her life. After each presentation, attendees will receive a sticker to apply to their passport.
Once cars have met all the featured Bible characters, they will present their completed passports to the last station. Cars will be rewarded with a prepackaged bag of candy for each participant. Bags will also contain information about the Living Nativity that will be held at Beach Lake United Methodist Church in December.
“Our previous Halloween event welcomed about 250 children and adults,” shared Reverend James C. House, who has been referred to as “Pastor Jim” since his tenure in Beach Lake started last summer. “The members of our church brainstormed a creative way we can continue this tradition while safeguarding the health of everyone.”
Beach Lake United Methodist Church holds in-person worship services at 7:55 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. every Sunday.
These services observe CDC guidelines by including face masks and social distancing, among other measures. Services may also be viewed online through www.BeachLakeUMC.com.
