Host Your Own Reformation Day Event!
We celebrate Reformation Day on October 31st every year instead of Halloween. When we planted our church we traded our regular Reformation Day traditions at home, for a community outreach event in order to share the Gospel on a day when evil is often the focus. We named our event The Passport to the Reformation. It is held in our church parking lot which is in a prime location to catch families trick-or-treating since it is in the middle of a neighborhood.
As each family or individual child arrives, they receive a passport to begin their journey at the first table. We set up booths, or stations, where children must go in order to complete their travels and collect all the stamps for their passport, as well as the prizes available. It is an endless flow of new faces throughout the night so we just repeat our parts over and over again for each new family or group of kids that arrives. In all, a family can be in and out of the event within 20 minutes, so it is the perfect length to pop in and out of when they have other destinations they want to enjoy while trick-or-treating.
