Awesome Halloween Outreach Tool!

Imagine kids coming to your door or your church event this Halloween going home with something that could literally change their life for eternity.

Is it a Gospel Tract? Nope. It's something even better - it's cool music that is 100% scripture that kids will love. Include info on your church if you'd like, but if you give out these scripture music CDs you unleash the power of God's Word to change hearts!

Isaiah 55:11 promises, "So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."

Allow God's Word to impact kids during this Fall Season, order your JumpStart3 Scripture CDs asap - supplies are limited at this incredible low price of $2 per CD!
