Halloween is coming soon! In our family, my husband, Tim, takes the kids around to Trick or Treat in the neighborhood. I gladly stay home and hand out candy. A lot of the kids know me since I stand at the school bus stop with my kids and try to be a friendly face for all the kids’ morning.
Every year, I hand out a gospel message of some kind along with a big handful of candy. I had success finding good Trick or Treat tracts the first couple years.
I have used:
- Focus on the Family’s Adventures in Odyssey Trick or Treat Cards (which I cannot find on their own site anymore)
- Oriental Trading’s Shine God’s Light handouts (these were okay, but I wanted a more clear gospel message)
- Crossway’s Gospel Tracts (these are great, but I usually forget to order them in time!)
Last year I decided to create my own.
I try to use tracts that are eye-catching, have a simple and clear message of God’s love, and mention Jesus.
I wanted to make the one I created available in case you wanted to use it for your own Trick or Treaters or maybe to inspire you to come up with your own.
Here it is in PDF form: Halloween Tract 2016
Please, if you use it, make sure to hand out LOTS of candy with it. Don’t be THAT house that gives out miserly amounts. Make them overjoyed that they came to your door so that they are willing and eager to see what else you offer–the Love of Christ!
What ideas have you used to share the gospel with your Trick or Treaters?
