Trunk ‘r Treat @ Plaza Middle School
Oct 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Trunk 'r Treat @ Plaza Middle School | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

Join us for our annual Trunk ‘r Treat, this year at Plaza Middle School! All kids 6th grade and younger are invited to trick-or-treat around the parking lot, where festively decorated cars will hold delicious candy and treats. We’ll also have games, face painting and drawings. Invite your friends and neighbors for this fun family event!

Trick ‘r Treat So Others Can Eat

Canned goods will be accepted at the church on October 28-29 and at Trunk ‘r Treat for the Southern Platte Emergency Assistance Center. Bring your donations and help a family in need in Platte County.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are two ways you can help with Trunk ‘r Treat!

  • Host a trunk: Our Trunk ‘r Treat is a great event because of great people! If you’d like to decorate your trunk and hand out candy to the hundreds of children attending from our community, please contact Jen Bruce, Children’s Ministry associate.
  • Donate candy: If you can’t host a trunk, consider donating bagged, individually wrapped candy … it takes a lot of candy to fill all those buckets!


Couples’ Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Nov 3 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

During the school year, PWUMC offers Couples’ Nights Out once a month (usually on the first Friday) to give couples an opportunity for an evening to themselves.

Each CNO starts with a short program (usually 30 minutes or less) followed by a date night where they discuss what they’ve learned.

We are excited to announce our Couples Nights Out program for the 2017/2018 season. We will be using the book by Francis and Lisa Chan, “You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity”. Francis and Lisa will address the question that many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a great marriage?” Learn more about resources available for this study.

Cost is $10 per couple each month when registered 10 days before the event. (Reservations after that will be charged a $20 late fee).  This covers the adult program AND childcare. Childcare drop-off is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.
