Church Events 20-20-21 | Messenger of the Thousand Lakes


Trunk or spooky treat: Bethesda Lutheran Church in Malmö will be offering fabulous treats for elves and elves at their 4th annual Halloween Trunk or Treat event on Sunday, October 31 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the church parking lot. In case of bad weather, boosters will go inside the church. The church is located at 21590 State Hwy. 47 in Malmö. If you have any questions, call the church office at 320-684-2123.

The church also invites people to join them in decorating the trunks of their cars and distributing candy to the children. They suggest, due to COVID, that attendees bring a card table to place the candies, so the little elves can take their own candy rather than give it to it.

The church is organizing a competition for the best trunk this year! Unfortunately, they will not be serving food and refreshments this year. However, there will be bags (with some school supplies) for the children. Please join them for this safe evening of boos and scares!
