Grace Bible Church is spending Halloween in a unique way this year. The second annual Nite Lite Bright Lite Festival on Oct. 31 is the church’s way of showing children that light conquers darkness.
Worship Pastor Rob Pilant calls it a safe environment compared to going door to door.
“We’ll have a bounce house, games and lots of candy,” Pilant said.
The event’s first celebration last year drew about 160 kids, and Pilant said he expects close to 200 this year.
Starting Oct. 10, there will be a candy donation container in the church lobby for members to fill with donations. Also, if any members have interesting lights to donate, they can contact Pilant with suggestions.
The event goes from 6 to 8 p.m. on Halloween in the church auditorium, 601 Blue Ridge. For more information, check out Grace’s website.
