How are you handling Halloween? Kids are seeing a lot of scary images. Our culture is obsessed with evil. As you probably know, I wrote a Halloween Series this year. I just got this e-mail in from someone who just finished it:
We just finished up our final Spooky Lessons of the Bible last night. The kids LOVED it! Great lesson series Pastor Karl.
The kids really enjoyed the gross guessing game. We used peeled grapes for eyeballs, a loofah sponge and jello for a brain, REAL pigs feet from the meat section of the grocery and for the final night, we used pickles and pistachio nuts for gorilla fingers.
But most important, our kids better understand that they don’t have to fear death if they have a relationship with Jesus Christ. The most powerful story in the series was the final night – the lesson of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.
Again, thank you for this fun and powerful series. I look forward to seeing what else you have in store for us!

Lori mentions the last lesson. Well, I have taken that last lesson, and made it available as a SINGLE LESSON DOWNLOAD you can teach THIS SUNDAY!
The theme of this lesson is based on 1 Corinthians 15:55, 57: “‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The focus is on the Resurrection of Jesus and its centrality to the Christian Faith. By teaching this lesson, you’ll be able to redeem the season in a way you’ve never seen before, all while allowing your children to enjoy the season in a wholesome and fun manner.

Here is another e-mail I just got:
The kids loved it! They looked forward to Mr. Bones each week! We did our stories in the dark, around a flashlight and it was amazing at how quiet the kids would get…..and then suddenly….they were screaming. It was the best of both worlds. I don’t know why kids are attracted to things like that, but they are and it was great to be able to offer it to them via a Christian perspective. Thanks, Karl, for a great series.
