[October 24, 2012]  On Oct. 31, 6:30-7:45 p.m., Lincoln Christian Church at 204 N. McLean will host "Camp Promises" for kids through fourth grade and their family.

This event for families will feature "indoor campsites" with games and prizes or candy.

Kids are encouraged to come dressed as hikers (please, no scary costumes). Parents must accompany children.

Camp Promise Seekers is a safe alternative for kids on Halloween. It is designed to encourage participation from the church family and to reach out to families in the community.

During the night, the family room of the church will be filled with campsites, each decorated in its own unique way by host campers.

There will be picnic baskets and coolers filled with treats. Campers can go from campsite to campsite, playing a game, while parents stand close by. It is also a great time for parents to connect with one another, getting to know the families of the church and the community.
