Havelock United Methodist and Denton–Pleasant Dale United Methodist churches teamed up with the People's City Mission to hold a Halloween party for the mission's children Saturday.

There were Halloween–themed games, music and food for more than 50 children, and each child got to leave with their very own pumpkin.

"I like all the decorations and all the people that came to help," Nevaeh Martinez said.

"I didn't want these kids to be left out of anything simply because of them living down here," Pastor Bob Lamb of Havelock United Methodist Church said. "They should be able to enjoy what other kids enjoy."

This is the first year the churches held a party for the mission's children. Organizers said they hope to make it an annual event.
