Children of all ages, and parents, are invited to St. James Lutheran Church, 109 York Street prior to the Gettysburg Halloween parade at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 22 for a Halloween Family Open House. Come share your Halloween spirit, enjoying arts and crafts, games, treats and maybe a few tricks. Everyone is invited to come in costume.

Before the parade begins, all participants will move into the church worship space to sing some Pumpkin Carols and hear some spooktacular organ music presented by organist Timothy Braband. At 7:15 p.m. we will move from the worship space out to York Street to watch the Gettysburg Halloween Parade. Youth Minister Kristin Slaybaugh invites all children in the neighboring area to attend in anticipation of the big parade.

For more information, call the church office at 717-334-2012 or check out the website
