After two long years of celebrating a socially distant Halloween, H.U.G.S.—the volunteer and community outreach arm of the Woodland Hills Foundation—is proud to announce the RETURN of Trunk or Treat! On Saturday, October 15th at Woodland Hills High School, Woodland Hills teachers, staff, parents, community groups, businesses and more will come together to create lasting fun and memories for our students!
On Saturday, October 15, 2022, local community groups, families, teachers, staff, businesses, clubs and more will gather at NOON at Woodland Hills High School to begin decorating their trunks in the Halloween theme of their choice. These "Trunk Hosts" are kindly asked to bring AT LEAST 800 pieces of candy in order to provide enough for each child who attends.
Then from 2-4 PM children and their families will arrive to "Trick or Treat" for candy at the various trunks!
NO REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO TRICK OR TREAT!
We'll also have photo stations, a live DJ, special performances and more!

Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is hosting a conference this weekend on Missional Leadership, and on Saturday, Pastor Jason will be speaking on a panel titled “Short-Term Missions Disrupted.” Registration is FREE but it ends on Wednesday, October 5th.
The past two years have brought a seismic shift in many areas that touch each of us and our churches: a global pandemic that profoundly disrupted not just health systems and supply chains, but the stuff that binds us together in community: who we spend time with, how close we get to each other, how we protect each other’s health. The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020 caused a growing number of Americans to see our nation’s legacy of racial injustice for the first time; the rise of Christian Nationalism has laid bare what to many Americans was an increasingly dangerous conflation of faith and power.
What does it mean to engage in God’s mission of love, peace, and justice through the major disruptions of our day? How can we lead in mission in new ways amidst the disruption we’ve experienced in the past two years?
