Special Halloween Field Day

This past Saturday we held a special Halloween Field Day for the kids. The goal of the event was to provide a safe environment for the kids to come out in their costumes and trick or treat. The event may have gone off too well. Imagine 40-50 kids on a sugar high and you get the idea. The volunteers and kids alike showed up in costume and had plenty of activities to take part in. We had fishing for prizes as well as the classic boxes marked brains, eyeballs, and guts, of coarse filled with jell-o and grapes. There was face painting and costumes provided for the kids who did not have one of their own. We had treats to go around from pumpkin cookies to Halloween style donuts and of coarse plenty of candy.

The kids were given a safety lesson and safe trick or treating practices like letting your parents look through your candy first and don't eat candy that is already open. Along with the safety lesson was a biblical lesson with jack-o-lanterns. All of the kids got their very own kid size pumpkin and were shown how like making a jack-o-lantern Jesus first removes all the ick or sin from inside of us, then carves us in his image, and finally places the Holy Spirit inside of us to be a light to the rest of the world.

Very well captured! This was an amazing Halloween bash. There were so many Kids and the Fiddle Worship was really cool. My favorite part of the day was when the kids were asked what was that icky stuff inside us called and they said blood and guts
