TRICK OR TREAT
1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
We have seen the fall decorations in the stores since before the 4th of July holiday which is way too early to suit me. We have seen the special candy in the stores as people are already preparing for when the kids come to your door dressed up in their favorite costume character and shout “trick or treat” in hopes that you will give them a bucket full of sweet treats.
As a former preschool teacher, it was a fun day for us in our classroom. The kids looked forward to a party with all of the fall fun activities. As a matter of fact, we had a Fall Fun Day, and while we didn’t acknowledge the “Halloween” aspect of the season, the children were allowed to dress in their favorite character for a Costume Party, but only something fun and nothing scary. I would always share a Bible story with them to coincide with something that they could associate with a particular time of year. They always enjoyed this one about “Trick or Treat” and so I thought I would share the highlights with you.
The Childress Family is available for your church or concert event for 2017. Our calendar is beginning to fill. We would look forward to coming to your homecoming or concert event.
Please contact us now in order to secure your selected date.
