Celebrate the Hallelujah Night with us at church!

 

Every year, I am asked the same questions by parents and children alike, “Should I allow my child to go trick-or-treating on Halloween?”

 

When you look at the concept of going door to door and openly, freely going to a neighbor’s home.  It is quite beautiful.  It could even be seen as evangelistic.  There’s no other day in the year when homes are open to families and children.  And, because children want to know if it’s good or bad, I say, “It isn’t bad to safely visit a neighbor’s home under adult supervision and permission in order to receive candy. No, that in itself is not wrong or bad”, but let’s consider what Halloween stands for.

 

Halloween is not a Christian festival. It has originated from the old European superstitious belief that the old souls come back from dead on this day, and if they are not treated well, they would play tricks on you. So this tradition of children dressed like dead souls visiting neighbors and asking for treats began, but lately Halloween has been also influenced by the Church of Satan.

 

While we have been holding ‘Hallelujah Night since 1997, I encountered a parent from my child’s school who was a Satan worshiper in October 2009.  She seemed to me to be a normal, regular parent.  I asked her how they viewed Halloween at her Church of Satan.  She responded by saying that Halloween is one of their most significant holidays as they pray that on that evening, more people will come to know Satan.

 

Our church has been hosting the ‘Hallelujah Night’ instead on Halloween for our children and this year’s theme is ‘Shipwrecked ~ rescued by Jesus’. Please bring your family and friends on Tuesday, October 31st, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. We gather at our Main Sanctuary for praise and worship, and then head to the Gym for festivities.

 

Thank you for your support in candy donations and through your prayers.                                    Jinny Song
