Over the years, Chick Publications
customers have found many creative
ways to use Chick tracts. At Halloween,
thousands of people drop tracts in the
trick-or-treat bags of the children who
come to their door. Christmas also
presents special opportunities. What store
clerk can refuse a tract when presented
with the statement: "Here is your
Christmas card from me."
It usually does not cost any more
postage to include a tract with the
Christmas cards you send out. Even if
they go to a family member or friend who
is already a believer, the message will
encourage them in the Lord and they can
hand it on to someone else. If it goes
to an unbeliever, what better Christmas
present than an opportunity to obtain
Christmas shopping puts us in contact
with lots of people in stores, malls and
parking lots. Few will refuse a copy
of Greatest Story Ever Told, if it is
presented with a smile and a cheery "Merry Christmas." This, of course, is
the favorite tract to use at Christmas, but
another title is The Present, given out
with: "Merry Christmas—here is a present
Money is much on the minds of
Christmas shoppers and the tract, How
To Get Rich (And Keep It) usually gets
attention. Humbug is another tract that
is designed for Christmas use. In it,
Scrooge gets saved, showing the reader
how he also can have eternal life. Other
popular tracts can be used such as A Love
Story, The Only Hope, Creator or Liar and more.
Most churches have extra activities at
Christmas time where Chick tracts can
be used. If you are having a cantata or
children`s program, it is vital that they
have something in their hand to take home
—something that will remind them of the
gospel message that they have just heard.
A tract can provide that take-home gospel
message. Slip The Greatest Story into the
bulletin or program leaflet. If your church
prepares food baskets for the elderly or
homeless, include a tract.
If your town has a Christmas parade,
your church members can enter a float
and pass out tracts to the crowds. If no
float, then church members can still reach
the thousands of spectators by passing
through the crowds handing out tracts.
Often, there are other Christmas events
in your community where crowds gather.
Church members can stand at the entrance
and exits and hand a tract to those coming
Books and sets of tracts make good
Christmas gifts by themselves, or
inserted in other gifts, for friends and
family. For young children, there are
several titles such as Best Friend, Li'l
Susy, Charlie`s Ants and There Go the
Dinosaurs, that are written for them.
Parents tell us that their children spend
hours reading and rereading the tracts and
afterwards have a solid understanding
of the gospel. They also provide an
inoculation against the deceptions of the
Books like The Next Step, Vanishng Proofs of Evolution, and One Heartbeat Away make good presents for teens.
The All Tract Assortment containing all
100 of the English (or Spanish) tracts
is a inexpensive gift that will keep your
teenager (and adults) absorbed for hours
in solid, practical biblical teaching.
We receive many testimonies of adults
who read a Chick tract as a child and
could never get away from its message;
sometimes years later surrendering their
life to Jesus.
Lots of people know that Christmas
has something to do with some little baby
named Jesus. We can put tracts in their
hands that will tell them that He is alive
and wants them to be with Him in heaven.
The emotional climate at Christmas is one
of the easiest times of the year to give
someone a tract. Don`t let them down.
