The Lansing Journal Journeys: Trunk-or-treating at Bethel Church while recreating a Michigan City campground


submitted by Janice and Dave Schurma

Not to be outdone by fellow church members Rob and Sandy DeVries, Janice and Dave Schurman — who also participated in Bethel Church’s (3500 Glenwood-Lansing Road) trunk-or-treating event — also submitted a Lansing Journal Journeys photo.

About The Lansing Journal Journeys

Lansing Journal Journeys

The Lansing Journal Journeys is an award-winning feature that showcases people displaying The Lansing Journal in creative locations.

We initiated the series because we are a community newspaper, and we like to see community faces in our pages and community names in our photo credits.

To participate, your location doesn’t have to be exotic or far; it just has to have The Lansing Journal in it somewhere. Email photos to [email protected] and tell us:

  1. The names of any people (or animals) in the photo
  2. Some information about the location
  3. The name of the person who took the photo

We’ll publish them online as soon as possible. Make sure you are subscribed, so you see your photos when we post them!
