Introduction: The Significance of Halloween in Faith

Halloween, often associated with costumes, candies, and haunted houses, is a holiday that many teens eagerly anticipate. However, as young believers, it’s essential to understand the origins of Halloween and discern how to approach it in a manner that aligns with our faith. This lesson aims to explore the biblical perspective on Halloween and empower teens to make informed choices.

Bible Reading: Ephesians 5:11-12

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.”

Scripture Explanation:

  • Fruitless deeds of darkness: These could include any actions that are not in line with God’s word, potentially some of the darker aspects of Halloween.
  • Expose them: This doesn’t mean confronting people, but rather living a life that reflects Christ, even during holidays like Halloween.
  • What the disobedient do in secret: This serves as a reminder that God sees everything, even the things done in secret.

Youth Group Discussion Questions:

  1. How can we, as teenagers, expose the deeds of darkness during Halloween?
  2. What are some ways you’ve seen Halloween celebrated that might be considered “fruitless deeds of darkness”?
  3. How can we celebrate Halloween while ensuring we remain aligned with our faith?

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:31

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

Scripture Explanation:

  • Whatever you do: This suggests that every action, including how we celebrate holidays, should be done with God in mind.
  • For the glory of God: Our lives should aim to glorify God in every way, ensuring that our celebrations reflect our love and respect for Him.

Youth Group Discussion Questions:

  1. How can we celebrate Halloween in a way that glorifies God?
  2. Can dressing up or giving out candy be done for God’s glory? How?

Bible Reading: Romans 12:2

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

Scripture Explanation:

  • Do not conform: This is a reminder not to blindly follow society’s norms, including how the world typically celebrates Halloween.
  • By the renewing of your mind: Our thoughts and actions should reflect our growth and maturity in Christ.
  • Test and approve: By staying close to God and His word, we can discern what is right and aligns with His will.

Youth Group Discussion Questions:

  1. How can the way we celebrate Halloween be different from how the world celebrates it?
  2. How can renewing our minds impact our perspective on holidays like Halloween?

Closing Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the gift of discernment and wisdom. As we approach Halloween, guide us to celebrate in ways that bring honor to You. May our actions reflect our love for You and not the patterns of this world. Help us be lights in the darkness, leading others closer to You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
