No Tricks, Just Treats

Pumpkin Carving 2014

Serve pumpkin cheese burgers…or mummified hot dogs…or whatever Pinterest-inspired, Halloween-themed food you so desire.  Maybe it’s just hot chocolate.  But serve something.

And serve your neighbors.

This Halloween, make it a new tradition to serve up food and drink, give away candy, and hang out just a bit longer with your neighbors who stop by.  Halloween is a great opportunity to “treat” your neighbors and get to know them a little better.  Maybe you can learn more ways that you can serve them throughout the rest of the year too (not just October 31).

If you’re looking for more ways to be a light this Halloween, consider hosting a pumpkin-carving party sometime that week.  Here are some more great ideas for living with Gospel-intentionality this month.

Start at the Beginning: Alpha Film Series


Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each week’s short film looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. Each session lasts 2 hours and includes dinner. The entire course (including dinner) is free of charge. Children are welcome to attend with their parents.

On Sunday, June 12 at 10:15 a.m. Grassroots Church will host the introductory film in our Sunday worship service.  You are invited to attend this service to see if Alpha is right for you. Whether or not you attend the introductory film, you can attend the midweek Alpha Film Series.

Three Grassroots Groups are running the Alpha Film Series this Summer. Choose which day/time works best for you.

Mondays at 6:00 in East Pearland/Friendswood (June 13 – August 15)

Mondays at 6:30 in Central Pearland (June 13 – August 15)

Wednesdays at 6:30 in League City (June 15 – August 17)

The importance of Tunafish to your spiritual life

In my family there is a grassroots gathering of family every Sunday night. The event even has a name. It’s called “Tuna.” The origin of the name dates back to when the original 5-person family came home from Sunday night church services and ate tunafish sandwiches together. Every. Sunday. Night.

Decades later, the family has grown from that original 5 to 55 Read more
