Hallelujah Halloween

Our church joined with another church of a different denomination to host a Halloween party this evening. My husband, the introvert worked with the doughnuts on a string where children try to eat the doughnut swinging in the air. I had that job two years ago. I worked behind the blue fabric of a fishing booth, hidden from sight, the extrovert. 🙂

It’s so nice to open the fellowship hall to children in their costumes with their parents and to see everyone play games. Eating candy, drinking cider, sharing a meal and people sorry to leave at the end of the event made for a great time.

We gave out information about God’s plan for salvation and prayed all would go well beforehand.

What a pleasant evening.

May God bless you.

  1. That is so sweet! I always loved it when churches and the retirement homes provided a safe and fun environment for kids during the harvest celebrations. It’s a wonderful thing to provide the alternative to the regular workings of the Halloween parties each year.
    Congratulations on a job well done Constance.
    I remember when my children were little and our church in San Antonio, Texas did the same thing. They had more fun than a regular trick or treat event and many kids would honor some our patriarchs and female heroes of the bible by dressing up as them during the harvest festival and then learned about giving thanks to our Lord for all the winter harvest that He provides for us. Of course there were many dressed as angels with wings. The kids really loved looking like angels the most!

    Blessings!
