Light the Night

Take a mission trip this Halloween…
to your neighborhood!


Halloween // Thursday, October 31 // 6 – 9PM
Volunteers in place by 5:30PM

This year, instead of doing a fall festival or a “trunk or treat” event on Halloween where we invite the community to come to us—we want to go out INTO the community and reflect Christ’s love on one of the spiritually darkest nights of the year. We are looking for LIFE Groups interested in hosting a Light the Night “missions outpost” (i.e. trick-or-treat station) on Halloween from 6PM - 9PM in subdivisions that have unusually high numbers of trick-or-treaters.

This is a joint project with our KidsLife Ministry! Check out this short video from our Children’s Pastor, Josh Renck, with more information about Light the Night.

Each Light the Night missions outpost will be hosted at a home of a LIFE Group member and will have the following:

  • A 10’x10’ EZ-up tent canopy (church can provide as needed)

  • A folding table (church can provide as needed)

  • Light the Night yard signs (provided by the church)

  • A carnival type game for trick-or-treaters to play

  • Candy and food for trick-or-treaters and their families (i.e. hot dogs, nachos, corn dogs, whatever the LIFE Group decides they want to serve; funds provided by the church for food and candy)

  • Handouts about our church and our ministries for children to give to trick-or-treating families

Our goal for this incredible outreach event is to reflect Christ’s love and serve our community! This Halloween alternative will allow our church members to meet families who are taking their kids from home to home, in turn providing widespread exposure about our church and our ministries for families and kids. It will also help host homes get to know more families from their neighborhood, which is always a good thing!

Who can participate?

Adult LIFE Groups like yours OR maybe your LIFE Group is interested in partnering with another LIFE Group to host a Light the Night outpost—that would be great also! Families with children can still participate! Create a rotation schedule with other LIFE Group families so you all have the opportunity to take your children out trick-or-treating.
