Many people do some great things for Halloween outreach like fall festivals, kid carnivals, costume theme parties and more. Dottie Bachtell says when the world shows up at your door, we should be ready to help those who come to find hope…and chocolate!


On October 31 in Longview, Texas, you will likely find this dynamic and radiant woman, Dottie, her husband Charlie, and their church friends on the front lawn with a table full of Bibles and chocolate. Throughout the year, they think ahead by collecting coupons and hitting sales at their local LifeWay Christian Bookstore. They buy different sorts of Bibles and devotionals. When trick-or-treaters arrive, the Bachtell crew gives them a Bible, shares the light of Christ and sends the visitors off with hope and chocolate! 


In the near future, we hope to have a video available so you can see clips from this night. Subscribe to the newsletter so we can keep you up-to-date on new videos and resources.

If you have ideas for outreach parties, we'd love to read them. Please visit our facebook page and post your stories there!
