Alternative Night 2018

Alternative Night 2018

October 31st, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

the vision

The purpose of Alternative Night here at Calvary Chapel Downey is to offer a family-friendly alternative for those who are seeking a Christ-centered option on Halloween, as this day can represent many wicked ideologies in which some may not wish to participate. We are excited to offer a place where the whole family can come to play games, go on rides, enjoy live entertainment, and much more! Most importantly, the Gospel will be shared, so make sure to bring an unsaved friend along with you. We hope to see you there on Wednesday, October 31st, from 6:00pm - 9:00pm!

Ways to get involved

Alternative Night takes massive effort, and we need help from the church body to accomplish it. There are many ways to get involved and serve the Lord on this night; please read through the various opportunities and sign up below for a spot where you can be used by God.

Candy! Candy! Candy!

One way you can assist with this event is by donating candy for this night. All donations can be turned in to the church office during business hours (Mon.-Sat. from 8:30am-5:00pm).

Game Booths

The game booths are the core of Alternative Night. Each booth contains a different game that you would be in charge of. It is a blast to watch the kids (and sometimes adults!) play a game and then be rewarded with candy. Please sign up below if you would like to help with this.


Candy Distribution

Here you would be a candy runner. Throughout the night you would make sure each booth is stocked and ready for the onslaught of candy crazed children. Please sign up below if you would like to be a part of candy distribution.


Set Up & Tear Down

Set up and tear down are crucial to our event, and we hope you consider being a part of it with us. Please sign up below if you would like to help make Alternative Night possible.

Jumpers & Interactive Games

We have jumpers for the younger children, obstacle courses for all ages, and various interactive games. If you would like to help watch over these, please sign up below.


Do you have a heart to minister to people? If so, then pray about being a mingler! We need people who go in to the crowd and simply minister to others through conversation, prayer, and the Word. Please sign up below if you feel called to this area.


Food Service

We will be preparing and serving homemade food at this year’s Alternative Night. Please sign up below if you would like to help with food preparation and service.

Ushers & Security

Ushers and security are vital to producing a safe and orderly environment. Please sign up below to be a part of this. 

We will have volunteer workshop for game booth helpers, Saturday, October 27th at 9:00am in the Main Sanctuary.
