Mazes

While probably not as intentionally disturbing as a Hell House, there are churches and ministries that create events centered on mazes for the Halloween time.

Momentum Church, a congregation founded in 2013 and based in Van Buren, Arkansas, will hold a Halloween Maze event on Wednesday featuring both recreational events and a charity effort.

“All Free for the community, free food and fun. We will be giving away food boxes for families in need,” noted the church’s Facebook event page.

“We will also have a giant maze for the kids to walk thru and grab some candy on their way. Drinks and hotdogs for everyone there, invite someone hope to see you there.”

For a time, The Rock Student Ministries at McLean Bible Church of Vienna, Virginia hosted a “Terror Maze” for teenagers that features scary images, but also a Gospel witness.

Kelsey Herrera, spokeswoman from The Rock Student Ministries, told CP in a 2012 interview that the main purpose was "to clearly share the Gospel with the 6th-12th graders who go through the maze."

“This is the only reason we host the event (or any event here at the Rock), to have the opportunity to tell students about the person and work of Jesus Christ,” she explained at the time.
