Light the Night

Halloween Night - Thursday, October 31st, 2019


What is Light the Night?

On Halloween night when families & neighbors are out in the community, CFBC church members will be on mission to meet neighbors, invite people to church, & share the gospel! Church families can participate in two ways. Be a host home or a give away home!

Host home - Host a block part at your home. CFBC will provide everything to the host family to make the event a success. It is like a party in a bag!

Give away home – Commit to give away child sized flashlights and a CFBC invite flyer to families when you give away candy at your home.

Host Homes

If you are serious about meeting your neighbors, reaching your neighborhood for Christ & getting the people in your community to church, this is for YOU! CFBC will provide each host family a bounce house, candy, giveaways and other required supplies to host a Light the Night block party at your home. We will provide you with a yard sign that says Champion Forest Baptist Church Host Home to advertise the event. Hit the button below to sign up to be a host home.

Give Away Homes

CFBC will provide each giveaway home 20 give away flashlights and a CFBC invite flyer. When you open your door to give away candy, hand the free give away flashlight and flyer from CFBC to each child/family. This is the perfect way to begin a conversation about your church that can lead to sharing the gospel or building relationships with neighbors.

No registration required for giveaway homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can host Light the Night?

We will target families who live within a 10-mile radius of Champion Forest Baptist Church and who we can trust to make the event a huge success. Life groups come together to one home to work the event and host together.

What will be provided to the host family?

CFBC will arrange for a bounce house to be delivered to each host home on the day of the event. This will be used to draw kids to stay at the home while the parents visit with the host family. CFBC will also provide invites to the church with a list of activities and time of services. The back of the card will have the gospel plan for salvation. We will also provide the host home with a small flashlight necklace with the church website on it. When the flashlight is handed out, we courage the host family to say something like “Champion Forest Cares about your child’s safety”. We encourage the host family to have someone hand the necklace flashlight directly to the child. The flashlights should only be given to a child. Each host home will also be provided cards that guests will drop in a box to have their name drawn for a prize. The host family will be responsible to draw a winner and give the prize out on November 1st.

How will the neighborhood know about the event?

CFBC will provide Host Home signs that each host family can put in their yard to advertise the event. The signage will say CHAMPION FOREST BAPTIST CHURCH HOST HOME - OCTOBER 31ST 5:30-8:30 PM. The night of the event, the neighborhood will see the bounce house and all of the fun that is happening, and it will draw a crowd. If a host home has a neighborhood newsletter, CFBC can provide the verbiage to the host home to submit. Prior to the event, CFBC can send a team to pass out flyers door to door inviting neighbors.

What will the host family be responsible for?

The host family will be responsible to recruit CFBC members to work with them. They will also need to have a table to set up the flashlights and registration cards. The host family can add things to the party such as snow cones, face painting etc, but all things added need to be approved by CFBC to ensure that nothing unsafe or harmful to the reputation of CFBC is given out during the event.

When will a host home receive the bounce house and supplies?

All host families will be able to pick up the supplies on Sunday, October 27 – Wednesday, October 30th. The supplies will be picked up in the kids ministry offices and each host family will sign out the supplies from the office. The bounce house company will deliver the bounce house directly to the host home and will pick it up after the event as well.

How will we follow up with the families who attend a Light the Night?

All of the cards from the drawing boxes will be turned in to CFBC on Nov 1 and each card represented will receive a phone call from a CFBC staff member to make a connection.

How will host families return items to CFBC?

The bounce houses will be picked up by the vendor directly from your home. Please return all other supplies to the Kids Ministry office by Sunday, November 1.

Will host training be required?

The host family must have a background check completed and must go through our safe and secure program. We will also have 2 training dates to choose from (Sunday and a Wednesday). More details will follow once you are an approved host home.
