Let these Christian Halloween alternatives help you shine your light for Jesus even on October 31st! We as Christians have a choice: we can hide or we can stand for Jesus and shine His light into the darkness. Everyday should be a day in which we look to glorify our Lord and Savior by how we live and also by sharing Him with others.
When our children were young we chose not to participate in traditional trick-or-treating. However, we never wanted them to feel that Christians had to miss out on good clean fun, and we chose to "rejoice in the day that the Lord had made" in other creative, fun ways.
One thing we did was have a treasure hunt We also had movie nights, carved pumpkins for Jesus using the "pumpkin Gospel", played hide and go seek with flashlights (letting God's light shine in the darkness), participated in our church's Fall Festivals, and had other fun family memories that glorified God.
Halloween is a great soul winning opportunity too!
Use these other creative Christian Halloween alternatives to make October a time to share God's love with others...especailly children!
Use this free Halloween tract with a piece of candy to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the trick-or-treaters that come to your house, your Sunday school class, or other children in your life. This tract can really be used anytime during the year for a "treat with Truth!"
Halloween has become a time that encompasses darkness and fear. The Bible tells us that God is light and therefore we are to let our "light so shine before men that they may see our good works and glorify our Father who is in Heaven." (Matt. 5:16) Therefore, Christian Halloween alternatives help us do just that.
God does not desire for us to live in fear. Use this little scarecrow lollipop tract to share God's love with children and that can trust Him and not be afraid.
I believe God created fun and enjoyment...Satan just distorts it.
Let's celebrate Jesus EVERYDAY!
