The Christian Pumpkin

This Saturday is a day that kids look forward to all year long, Halloween! The fun of planning what you want to dress up as, getting your costume ready, buying candy to hand out, carving pumpkins, and of course trick or treating! Halloween is not a holiday that is celebrated in the church, however, I did find a cute and fun way to tie it into telling the story of Jesus.

If you have not carved your pumpkin yet, this story of “The Christian Pumpkin” below is a great and fun way to teach kids about Jesus while having some Halloween fun!

A Christian Pumpkin - Author unknown

I'm a Jack O'Lantern

My light will shine so bright

For I am a Christian pumkin

My symbols tell what's right

My nose is like the cross on which my Savior died

To set us free from sin We need no longer hide

My mouth is like a fish The whole wide world to show

That Christians live in this house And love their Savior so!

The story starts at Christmas My eyes are like the star

That shown on Baby Jesus And wise men saw from far

My color it is orange Just like the big bright sun

That rose on Easter day Along with Gods' own Son.

And so on Halloween Let's set our pumpkins out

And tell the trick or treaters What Gods' love is all about!

I pray that each of you will have a safe and joy filled Halloween!

Have a blessed week, Intern Pastor Katie Kringstad
