Halloween Zone

This Zone is for those who use the Halloween holiday as an opportunity for outreach. If your convictions prevent you from doing so, we respect that decision and encourage you to utilize the other areas of the site.

Consider reading When Good People Disagree as you pray about what to do during this season. While we all regret the emphasis on evil during this season, this Zone is for those who seek to redeem the time for the glory of God.
