One year a church had Martin Luther show up, along with a blessing in disguise, Moses, a shepherd, the Book of Numbers, a couple of shepherds, a prophet, and a sheep. During the announcements, there was a chance for those in costume to parade down the aisle so everyone had a chance to see the creative ideas.
When holding an event like this, remember to take pics and post on the church web-site and social media #myelcic. The event drew a fair bit of Facebook traffic. It allowed for congregation members to share something fun that happened at church, and in the process share their faith.
Fellowship hour, on that day, included posters with insights about All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day, and notes about the origins of Halloween. Just for fun cupcakes were provided for decorating with icing and candied goodies.
