Halloween has become the day when neighbors interact with each other more than any other day of the year.
Halloween is a fantastic opportunity for outreach to your neighborhood and people in your commuity you rarely come face-to-face with. We have options for churches that want to equip kids with bags for candy and also cards for handing back to people thanking them for the free candy. We also have church banners, postcards and invitations geared towards inviting people to your church trunk-or-treat event. You can customize one of our designs for your halloween event or we can create a design specific for your church, or one that matches an existing theme.

I recently attended a church service where a pastor admitted they have always taken the perspective of “people are responsible for themselves. If they choose not to engage and participate, it’s not our problem.” That same pastor also admitted that he and the rest of the staff are haunted by Colossians 1:28 and the call to “present everyone fully mature in Christ.” They struggle with getting attendee engagement at the church. Thousands attend; maybe 40% of them are in small groups, and a far lower percentage volunteer. They’re trying to figure out how to improve engagement, and their new strategy is still to offer small groups/classes and wait for people to sign up. The difference now is how frequently they talk about small groups and serving.
Just like football has its “Super Day” every year, many churches view Easter Sunday as their “Super Day” for reaching out to the community. People who only come a few times a year are getting their “Sunday Best” ready and you want them at your church! For those of us who have been in ministry for any amount of time, we lovingly have words like “Creaster” or “CEO” (Christmas and Easter Only) for the people who only show up twice a year.
