Members of a local church are getting to know other residents of Prince William County.
Lutheran Church of the Covenant (LCOC) in Dale City recently ran two community events — Octoberfest and a Family Fall Festival.
Octoberfest, which took place on October 20, offered an array of food and activities.
“It was fun with a purpose: to connect with the community and show hospitality while raising funds for two major outreach ministries coming up — Rise Against Hunger meal packing [on] March 23, 2019 and a mission trip to a storm damaged area in July 2019,” LCOC Council Member Patti Beattie wrote in an email.
LCOC’s Family Fall Festival took place the following week, on October 27.
Attendees enjoyed food, crafts and games. They also met local families.
Thrivent Financial, a non-profit, and volunteers from the church assisted with Octoberfest and the festival.
