For Vacation Bible School I decided even the candy treats should proclaim the glory of the Lord.
It only takes one verse to convict the heart of sin and lead to salvation.
If we pass verses into their hands and their houses, it might enter their hearts.
Each day of Vacation Bible School we send goodie bags home that include
a Gospel tract, a small gift for attending,
an invitation for the next day to pass out to a friend, and a candy treat.
All templates were from Microsoft Word. They’re so easy to use!

This was actually a template to label garden plants.
Under New choose
then Other Labels,
then Herb Garden Plant Markers.
I deleted the words and inserted the verse.
I used Genesis 24:26.
I love making these little gifts!
Wrapping box after box of Nerds can be challenging,
tying tiny bows can drive you crazy,
but they sweetly illustrate the Gospel verse,
I glue the box on the card.
I didn’t use a template,
just a Word document, where I kept cutting and pasting
2 Timothy 3:15 over and over.
I punch a hole in the corner and tie
two Smarties on with curling ribbon.
This is a business card from Word templates.
I just added Ephesians 3:19, punched the holes,
and slid the suckers through.
I was grasping at straws,
and used the comparison of candy fillled with chocolate
to being filled with the Holy Spirit.
Other years, I have typed up this little paragraph
and filled celophane gift bags with the paper
and individually wrapped types of candy listed.
How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
When we pass out sweet Gospel treats,
I love to tell the kids the Word of God is sweeter.
I would love to hear any ideas you have for making sweet Gospel messages!
