Creative Bible Tidbits, Issue #012 - Fall Fun!

It's Fall Y'all!

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.

Five Fun Family Fall Activites!

1. One thing we did was have a treasure hunt. We would use fun creative clues, many times including Scripture references, for them to find either a treasure chest of candy at the end or little treats along the way. What fun memories these times made!

2. Another Halloween alternative included having special movie nights with popcorn and treats!

3. One of the most memorable activities though was carving pumpkins for Jesus using the "Pumpkin Patch Gospel". We used the book "Pumpkin Patch Parable" by Liz Curtis Higgs to demonstrate how much we are like a carved pumpkin - when we put our lives in God's hands, He cleans all the gook (sin) out and places the light of Jesus inside of us making us new and changed shining for Him!

4. Still another fun activity was playing hide and go seek with flashlights (letting God's light shine in the darkness)! Even as young adults, our kids still love to do this!

5. We also participated in our church's Fall Festivals, and had other fun family memories that glorified God.

We didn't want our kids to think we couldn't have fun as Christians, but we also wanted them to remember that - "Whether, then you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

We pray you, your personal family, and your church family have a fun-filled Fall shining the Light of Jesus to this world!

Sincerely in Christ,

Susan <><
