Last year, I took a bunch of my youth kids and we went trick or treating to the houses around the church.
But instead of receiving candy from these  people, we actually gave them candy with a small paper attached that had our church’s name on it.
We didn’t stay and talk about the church or what not, we just gave the candy and moved on to the next house.

The reactions from the neighbors were great. They came out to give us candy, but were confused when we handed them candy. Some insisted that we still take their candy, others just said thank you, and a few, “This is new…”

It was a good time had by all. And a great way to let the neighbors know of our existence. Did any of them ever come to the church? I don’t know.
But I hope that we were able to leave some sort of good impression on them.
