Costumes, candy, and tons of fun are just around the corner at Hazelwood’s Trunk- or-Treat on Sunday, October 27 from 4-5:30 p.m. The idea is to park your vehicle in the lot, pop the trunk, decorate it, and hand out candy to all the little ghosts and ghouls that stop by. If the weather doesn’t cooperate with us, we’ll head into Cartwright Hall.

Need some ideas for decorating your trunk? There are tons of inspiring ideas to be found online for all kinds of budgets and abilities. Kids from all around the community stop by, so start thinking now of how you might help welcome these neighbors. Sign up in Sulanke Commons after worship to let us know you’d like to participate!



As many of you know, the Preschool’s big fundraiser for the year is our Fall Bazaar. This event takes a lot of volunteers to make happen. We are in need of volunteers to help set up, serve food, work a children’s game, bring in baked items (homemade cookies, breads, candies, caramel corn, etc.), and clean up. If you can help out with any of these things, please contact Preschool Director, Angie Lopez, at (765) 282-2430 as soon as possible. You can also download a volunteer form below and return it to the church.

Christian Ministries’ Steps for Hunger

Sunday, October 13 at Hazelwood Christian Church

Registration at 1:30 p.m., Walk begins at 2 p.m.

This walk is replacing CROP Walk in order to keep more of the funds local for Christian Ministries’ Food Pantry. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised will still go to Church World Services– CROP.

There are two ways you can help support the food pantry through Christian Ministries’ Steps for Hunger: STEP ONE: Sign up to WALK and ask people to sponsor you; STEP TWO: Sponsor a Hazelwood Walker.

Sign up continues through October 13 in Sulanke Commons– prayerfully consider how you can help. We hope to have a big turn out of walkers in support of the walk and our church.



Volunteers are needed for the Christian Ministries’ Food Pantry on November 6, 7, & 8. For more information or to sign up contact Marcia Miller at (765) 730-5552.



Saturday, October 19

8 a.m.-Noon

Not only is Hazelwood in a prime location to see the Ball State Homecoming Parade, we are also fortunate to have a large parking lot in an area where public parking is at a premium. To make the most of our situation, Hazelwood will offer parking to the public on the morning of the parade in return for a $3 donation per vehicle.

This event is sponsored by our Hazelwood Youth and Missions & Benevolence Team. The money raised from this project helps support our Christmas Box Project, where we help less fortunate families in Delaware County have some comfort and joy during the Holiday Season.

Mark your calendars now, and sign up in Sulanke Commons after worship to volunteer and support this worthy cause!




On Sunday, October 20, Hazelwood will celebrate worship through music with our annual MUSIC FEST.

You can vote for your favorite hymns and praise songs to be included in this musical service by using the insert in your bulletin the next few Sundays. There is a ballot box for your completed voting sheet at the sign-up table in Sulanke Commons. If you need a little help remembering the name of  a praise song, there will be a list by the ballot box to help you out.

Vote now, and vote often! The last day to get your votes in is October 6. Make sure your favorite hymns or praise songs get chosen for our MUSIC FEST!
