Nearly 400 Participate In Annual Hill-O-Ween


The Greater Hillsboro Ministerial  Fellowship held its annual Hill-o-ween event on Saturday, Oct. 31, in the church parking lots of Calvary Baptist, Hillsboro United Methodist, World Harvest, St. Paul's Lutheran, First Presbyterian and the Free Methodist. 

The churches wanted to move forward with Hill-o-ween to celebrate God's love and His salvation, but knew they had to do it safely, as well as creatively. In fact, Shawnna Rovey, a member of Calvary Baptist Church and coordinator for the Hill-o-ween event, and her husband, Wayne, built a candy shoot so church volunteers could keep six feet from those in their vehicles.

Churches provided a safe alternative for children by wearing masks and gloves to hand out goodies. Parents in turn, kept their children safe by keeping their little ones in the car while church volunteers handed treats to them through the windows.

The year has had a lot of ups and downs, changes and adjustments, and through the Hill-o-ween event, churches wanted to remind parents and children that they are loved.

"Our theme here at Calvary was 'In the midst of all the darkness, we need to remember that Jesus is the light.' That's how we decorated here at Calvary," said Rovey.

Despite the changes that had to be made this year, the Greater Hillsboro Ministerial Fellowship hopes they can have a bigger and better event next year.
