Trunk r' Treat + Chili Supper!

Guess what? It’s almost October! And what does this mean? It means there are already literally tons of costumes being sifted through at your local Meijer as you read this.

It also means that Halloween Trick-or-Treat anxiety is welling up inside parents and homeowners alike.

That said, we’d like to invite all of you to join us for our annual Trunk r’ Treat + Chili Supper this October 27 from 4–5:30pm. It’s the Saturday before Halloween, so you can still go Trick-or-Treating on Wednesday and not miss out on the awesome chili and candy here at DBCC that is becoming quite the autumn tradition.

Oh, did we mention the River Sirens will be singing? And that the Bardstown Bound Boofest is happening simultaneously?

So, please come out and join us for an awesome time of chili, folk music, funny costumes, technicolor leaves, and, of course, CANDY!

Part of your nutritious breakfast.

Trunk r' Treat!


The Youth are planning to help sponsor a Trunk r’ Treat here at the church on this coming Halloween Weekend, the 29th of October.  Our hope is to create yet another chance for outreach in our Highlands Community.  There will be lots of candy to be had, as well as chili and some interesting costumes to behold. However, we CANNOT do this on our own!  Being that none of our students actually have their own trunk, we’ll need some of you to lend yours.  If you know any children who would like to make a stop on the Trick r’ Treat trail on Saturday night, send them over!  If you know any youth who would like to participate in this event, direct them to us and we will certainly appreciate the helping hand.  

If you would prefer not to decorate your own trunk, the students have said they would be happy to help decorate your trunk on the day of (or the day before) the Trunk r’ Treat.  To make sure we have a student decorator available, please contact Jennifer or myself.

With so many wonderful bakers in our congregation, the students have decided that this year’s Trunk r’ Treat should include a cakewalk.  We have already been rallying for pledges of cakes and deserts.  If you would like to pledge a cake for the cakewalk, we’d be more than happy to accept.  There is no such thing as too many cakes, after all.  We are also still taking pledges for chili.  We’ll accept all kinds! 

If anyone would like to sign-up for a trunk, or pledge cake, chili, or candy, contact our Secretary, Jennifer Vandiver, or our Youth Minister, Geoff Wallace to set you up!
