Halloween, a day of mixed feelings for many Christians, offers a tremendous opportunity for evangelism. What other day do so many children come in contact with followers of Jesus Christ? Trunk-or-treats put on by churches are packed with kids and their parents from the neighborhood and 41 million children still trick or treat, knocking on the doors of Christians. Wouldn’t it be awesome if each of those kids received a Gospel tract or an invitation to visit a local church?
There is an increasing number of creative Halloween Gospel tracts that let children know God loves them available. I’ve included some at the bottom of this post. One of the questions I’m asked is do tracts still work or am I just wasting my money? Isaiah 55:11 says: “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it” NLV. Because Memory Cross produces so many Halloween Gospel tracts we receive emails from those who have read and responded to the Gospel through our tracts and besides do you ask that question about the candy you buy trick-or-treat? Which has more potential for good in a child’s life?
The video below is the story of a couple whose lives were changed as a result of receiving a simple Gospel tract. If you doubt that God’s Word can change lives I hope you’ll take a few minutes and watch the video.
Halloween offers a tremendous opportunity for evangelism
Could 41 million children really be touched by God’s Word at Halloween? Based on the information I could find there are about 116,000 churches that hold a trunk or treat each year with an average attendance of just under 200. If those numbers are correct then there are 23 million children and parents who could be given a Gospel tract this Halloween! That’s a big number and handing out a Halloween Gospel tract at a trunk-or-treat is really simple. Along with a piece of candy hand out the tract or a flier with information inviting them to visit your church.
Handing out Halloween Gospel tracts for Trick-or-Treat
The other opportunity for Christians is to distribute tracts for trick-or-treating. Neighborhood kids knock on your door and along with candy hand out a Halloween Gospel tract. Kids actually prefer the tracts because they are something different. If the kids are younger, parents will usually go through the candy and see the tract. That’s it, nothing hard or scary and you’ve just given a child and their parents the Word of God. It’s now in God’s hands. I do encourage you to pray silently for each child you come in contact with.
Halloween Gospel Tracts to consider
There are a lot of options available, from traditional Halloween Gospel tracts found at your local Christian bookstore to the more creative. One of the things that attracted me to Memory Cross when Pastor Andy Lambert showed me the design was how creative it was so I’ve included our Halloween tracts for this year and also one from Let the Little Children Come. They also share our passion for presenting the Gospel to kids in fun, creative ways.
