MFC 1st ANNUAL SCAVENGER HUNT

Theme:  The Total Armor of God

Remember, there will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize!

 

 Find the passage that contains all the pieces of the Full Armor of God.

All items can come from anywhere but cannot be bought, ever purchased, or machine made, manufactured or the “real” thing. In other words can only be something scavenged from nature, litter, “God” made etc. You can use discarded premade items i.e. bottle caps, foil, etc. (get the idea?)  The “TOTAL ARMOR OF GOD” must be in the entry. (no missing parts) for it to be entered.

Your entry of the “Total Armor of God” must be turned in to the church office no later than October 8th. Entries will be voted on and the winners announced at our 73rd Anniversary All Church Potluck Celebration, Sunday, October 18, 2015.

Contact Terry DuLong if you have questions.
