5) Laying Up Treasures in Heaven/Pirates Theme – Yes, Jack Sparrow did make an appearance! This one was Derek’s favorite one so far; in fact, it was his idea! I even had pirate music playing in the background!
7) Jesus is “Deer” to My Heart – We dressed in camouflage and brought Derek’s deer mounts, leaves, etc. And this year, “Lady Bug” girl came to see us!
8) There’s No Place Like Home – I don’t have a picture of this set up, but we dressed as Dorothy and the Scarecrow from Oz. I had a piece of yellow fabric that I wrote out the Roman’s Road scriptures on to signify the “yellow brick road to home.” And I used a science fair board painted blue with cotton glued on it at the end for the sky.
So many churches are doing these types of outreaches now, and I really think it’s awesome to have the opportunity to reach people in this way. That’s what it has always been so important to me and my husband that we use this time to make a trunk with a theme that we can use to start a conversation about Christ. That is our commandment: to go out and tell. Let’s do that: Let’s tell the world – with a little piece of candy and some costumes – how much Jesus loves them!
