Carrollton’s Word of Life Gospel Ministries is hosting its second annual fall festival on Oct. 30 with thrilling and entertaining activities for all ages.
This local festival is one of the many fall festivals of the season that will be kicking off during the Halloween weekend. This event is in a family-friendly environment and will be occurring at 1633 Bankhead Hwy. The festival will host a Trunk or Treat event so the visitors have candy to munch on as they enjoy the festivities.
Myranda Duncan is the Word of Life Gospel Ministries worship leader and coordinator of the event. She assists with communications on behalf of the church, working alongside her father and church founder, Pastor Keith Jiles.
“There will be some different games,” said Duncan. “And then face painting, some pumpkin painting, different kinds of fall games like that.”
The popularity of Trunk or Treat festivals begins with churches wishing to bring fun and the Gospel to the community. Trunk or Treat festivals also offer safe places to trick-or-treat without the extensive walking or long driveways.
The Word of Life Fall Festival will contain many traditional fall activities for the attendees besides the trunk or treat. Bouncy houses and food will also be a part of the festival. Do not feel as if this event is only intended for small children; it is meant for teenagers and adults as well. This festival caters to all age demographics and welcomes older kids who want to partake in the trunk or treat and additional activities.
“It’s just going to be a fun time outside and just the trunks and stuff like that,” said Duncan.
Only members of the church or those who have contacted Duncan before the event will be passing out candy with their registered Trunk or Treat vehicles; however, all are welcome to come and enjoy the event regardless of whether they attend the church or not.
This free event will start at 4 p.m. and is expected to last until 7 p.m. It is encouraged to dress up in a Halloween costume to add to the experience. All young children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Any additional questions about this event should be directed towards Duncan or other staff of the church.

“Just come for a fun time with your family and enjoy some Christian faith fun with your family,” said Duncan.
