Personally, I differ in the opinion that we can’t participate at all. I believe we can use the Holiday for good. In particular, to share our faith!
Here are 5 ways to share your Christian faith this Halloween. 🙂
1. Give out Halloween gospel tracts
Giving out Halloween gospel tracts is a great way to share your faith. I recommend buying tracts catered to kids. These tracts are perfect to give out during Halloween.
It comes in an assortment of 10 tracts with 100 tracts total. They’re specifically targeted for kids during Halloween. The images are very colorful and printed on high-quality paper. You can either give these out individually or put these in trick-or-treat goodie bags!
2. Use Witnessing Stickers
Using witnessing stickers is a unique and fun way for kids and parents to hear about Jesus. Witnessing stickers aren’t going to go in-depth as much as tracts, but they are positive and sharing the love of Christ.
This pack includes 96 stickers. They’re perfect for candy/goodie bags or crafts. You can use these for Halloween night to give out to trick-or-treaters or have your kids use them in school.
3. Host a Light Party
Light Parties are parties that usually include games, food, and family-friendly costumes. It’s a fun and safe alternative for celebrating Halloween. The point of this party is to be a light to your community. Invite your neighbors and friends.
Games like apple bobbing or corn hole are popular and a hit with the kids. You can use this time to also connect with other parents, get to know them, and be a light. Don’t try to force a conversation about the gospel (forcing doesn’t work – no one likes to be forced), pray the conversation comes up naturally. Be Christ-like and they will notice something is different about you.
4. Reverse Trick-or-Treating
While I was researching, I came across reverse trick-or-treating and I absolutely love the idea. Instead of going door-to-door and receiving something, you’re going door-to-door and giving something.
What better way to show the love of Christ than to give rather than receive? You can make homemade cookies or you can make little goodie bags. Either way, you get to decide and then pass them out door-to-door. People will appreciate the gesture and you’ll be showcasing the love of Christ.
5. Decorate Your Yard
How does your yard look like during Halloween? Do you decorate? Instead of scary things, you can decorate your yard to look more like a fall festival. Your yard can be a testament to Jesus. There are DIY’s you can find online that will help you find cute Christian-like things to put in your yard.
There’s this one DIY I’ve found where people make a sign that says, “The only ghost that lives here is the holy ghost?” Isn’t that adorable?
Above all, if your behavior exhibits Christ, people will know there’s something different about you. In an essence, don’t just talk the talk, walk the walk.
My pastor once said, “If you spend time in the sun, people will notice. If you spend time with the Son, people will notice”.
Anyway, I hope these ideas have helped you. Have an amazing Halloween! 🙂
