What could Jake do now?
He had promised Dad that he would stay close to his older brother when they went out trick-or-treating. But he felt so brave in his new Superman costume that he wasn't frightened when his brother ran ahead. He didn't call or try to catch up. But now he was lost and scared
He heard footsteps around the corner. A tall man in a dark uniform suddenly appeared. Jake stood completely still, but he could feel his knees shaking.
As the man came closer, Jake recognized him. He was a policeman
"Are you lost, Superman?" he asked.
"I...I sure am " replied Jake.
"What street do you live on?" asked the policeman.
"1152 Maple Street," Jake answered.
The policeman took Jake by the hand and led him home. He rang the doorbell and when Jake's father saw him, he swept him up in his arms and hugged him tightly. Jake was safe
Jake got lost because he disobeyed his dad. But did you know that everyone has disobeyed God? Sin is breaking God's laws, like cheating or lying or taking something that's not yours. The Bible says that we "all have sinned" and God cannot let any sin come into Heaven (Romans 3:23).
Even though we deserve to be punished because of our sins, God still loves us. In fact, He loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, from heaven to take our sins away. Jesus Christ was punished for our sins by dying on a cross (John 3:16). The Bible says, "Christ died for our sins...he was buried, and...He rose again the third day" (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
After Jesus came back to life, He returned to Heaven to make a home for all who believe that He died for them and will turn from their sins. Have you ever asked Jesus to be your Savior and forgive your sins? You can say something like this:
"Dear Jesus, I know that I have done wrong things. Thank You for taking my punishment for me. I invite You to come into my life and take my sins away."

I do not want to promote Halloween but I also do not want my house "tp"ed or egged, so I hoped including tracts in the bags of candy would be a reasonable option.
With the title being "Halloween Maze" I thought there would be a maze activity for the kids to do inside. If the child opened the booklet to see an activity, their interest would be peaked and I hoped they would read the message. Instead, the booklet opens to two solid pages of words. No child is interested in that - and I'm sure they got chucked in the trash. I will not order these again in the future and will probably just make my own for next year.
