Live on mission this Halloween.

Halloween is a great time to get together with friends and family, but it is also a fun night to connect with your neighbors! Many families are looking for ways to make this night fun and memorable. With a little planning, you can create a simple event that will help you engage with your neighbors. Get together with your Disciple Group or group of friends and use this guide to plan your night!

THE BASICS

Don’t do life alone! 
Decide who will do this with you. It could be your Disciple Group, another family that lives in your area, or a group from your volunteer team.
Be welcoming! 
No matter what you decide to do,  make it an informal comfortable place where people feel welcomed.
Be present!
During the night, be sure you are connecting with people as you hand out candy or play games.
Be generous!
When gathering treats, think back to when you were a kid. Everyone loved the house that gave their best!
