SEBRING — With the huge success of its Trunk or Treat event in the fall, First United Methodist Church of Sebring decided to decorate trunks in Christmas themes and hold a special church service for children in the community. Cars were parked in a circle in front of the church building. Their trunks displayed nativity scenes, reindeer, Christmas villages and scenes from the hit movies “Frozen,” “Polar Express,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

While children traveled from trunk to trunk, there were activities set up along the way. They made Christmas ornaments, painted pictures, made reindeer food, roasted marshmallows for smores and ate hot dogs and chips. Adults sang Christmas carols and dressed in Santa hats. Someone even wore an elf costume.
