What’s Up for Halloween?


We asked our CMMag Insiders on our facebook fan page this question: What are you planning for Halloween? Are you avoiding it on philosophical or no-time factors? Are you doing a fall festival or similar event? Hitting the neighborhoods to collect candy for your ministry? (just kidding) Share what you're doing and why!

Here's what we learned…

Jeannete and her church in Castroville, CA are having their 6th annual fall festival. TrentnCheryl and Betsy are having Operation Christmas Child Shoebox wrapping parties. Henry and his church had a pumpkin-carving party and then encourage families to be the best neighbors with the best candy on Halloween night. Brenna's family is going for "great neighbor" awards too! Tiffany's church is partnering with all the other churches in their community to "Light the Night." Joni and her church will enjoy a concert with Jana Alayra. Heather's church is serving hot chocolate and coffee to trick or treaters. Gary–10th year for a fall festival! Lisa (yeehaw) and her church are having a Hootenanny. Belinda is treating her community with a Treatsville trunk-or-treat and carnival. Susan's church is doing a trunk-or-treat also. Ellen, Brenna, Lymandia, Cassie, and Krishna are all throwing fall festivals. Lindsey's church had a Royal Princess and Mighty Warrior party. And Shannon is taking in all the candy that kids get trick-or-treating and their parents have them donate!
