On Sunday, Oct. 20, St. Peter Lutheran Church will host a Fall Outreach Day to help members of the community take care of projects like raking lawns, cleaning out gutters and trimming tree branches.
Teams of volunteers from St. Peter Lutheran Church will come to homes between 9:30 a.m. and noon to help handle these tasks. The church will still have two worship services on Oct. 20 at 8 and 10:30 a.m., and Sunday school will still be held at the normal time of 9:15 – 10:15 a.m.
Also on Oct. 20, from 4 – 6 p.m., the women of St. Peter Lutheran will host their second annual Trunk or Treat event to celebrate Halloween. Cars will line up in the parking lot of the church with their trunks decorated for Halloween and filled with goodies for kids to “trunk or treat.” The youth group of St. Peter will be serving food for a free will donation, and there will be games to play and hayrack rides. All are encouraged to attend, and children are invited to dress up in costume for the event.
Grimes United Methodist Church will host its annual holiday bazaar on Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will feature more than 40 vendors selling crafts, holiday décor and home business merchandise.

If you’re interested in participating in the event as a vendor, there are still a few slots available for purchase. You can visit www.grimesumc.com to register for a vender slot.
