For the last several years, Greg and I have made a point of making this a ministry night in our home. Here's what we are doing this year:
- Full size candy bars. Our philosophy: Be generous just as we have had great generosity shown to us. Side note: Kids remember the house that gives the big candy bars and they come back, with friends.
- Business card from our church taped to the back of the candy bar with a label that reads: "This is our church. We invite you to visit sometime."
- Gospel tracts to go with every candy bar. I'm a big fan of the tracts from "Living Waters" ministry. This year I'm using the cartoon "Are you a good person?" tract.
- "Why Christianity?" video for the older children and teenagers who come to our door. It's a great evangelistic message in a DVD format. It's available through "Living Waters" ministry and, when bought in bulk, can be purchased at a discount rate.
With those tips in mind I say, "Happy Halloween Evangelizing!"
