Give families an evening alternative to celebrate the Halloween season biblically with this unique Bible Villains activity.
Family Ministry Halloween Alternative: Bible Villains Activity
Invite the members of each family to visit with Bible villains such as Herod, Goliath, Pilate, Pharoah, Judas, Bathsheba, Delilah, or Haman. Make sure to provide snacks and create atmosphere with dimmed lights and background noise.
Set up a station representing the villainous deeds of each of these people. Then have a volunteer dressed as the villain at each station to talk with families about his or her actions and motives.
Include a Bible and props related to each villain at their station. For example, Delilah’s station might include synthetic braided hair, ropes, fabric, and scissors. Write the villain’s Scriptures on a place card at each station, and have someone in each family read the verses aloud. Finally, include the following questions at each station for families to discuss:
- Why do you think this person was a villain?
- What was the result of this person’s actions?
- How did this person’s actions affect the people around him or her?
- How can we avoid being like this Bible villain?
