Valentine Ideas for Church
Preach About Love
Maybe it’s not the most original idea you’ve ever heard, but it’s a good one. Valentine’s Day is all about love. Since it’s on the mind, you might as well capitalize on the occasion. You have a lot of preaching material to choose from, though. The whole Bible is a book about love. We’ve listed a couple of notable love stories from the Bible below. Want more? Check out our Top Bible Verses About Love!
- Adam and Eve (Genesis 2-3)
- Abraham and Sarah (Genesis 17-18)
- Jacob and Rachel (Genesis 29)
- Ruth and Boaz (Ruth 4)
- The bride and groom (Song of Solomon)
- Mary and Joseph (Matthew 1)
- Jesus and the Church (John 15:9-15, 1 John 4:19, Luke 19:1-10, John 15:12, Luke 10:26-37, Luke 10:27)
Brand Your Service
Use Valentine’s bulletins to set the theme for the day. A bulletin is an excellent way to help shape the mood for a worship event or church Valentine’s Day service. Ensure that your church bulletin is outfitted with Valentine’s Day decor. Make sure that your media stays unified by matching your Valentine PowerPoint with your Valentine bulletin. Sharefaith has pre-made Valentine’s Day sets that make it easy to brand your entire service or event. In your Valentine’s Day bulletin, you may want to include a Scripture verse on love (e.g., Matthew 22:37; John 15:13; 1 Corinthians 13; 1 John 3:18; 4:18).
Create A Valentine’s Day Mood
Scatter flower petals in strategic locations. If you need to do some decorating for a Valentine’s banquet, try tossing some flower petals around for an instant Valentine’s atmosphere. Using real flower petals will automatically help to improve the scent, too (the downside is, they can easily get ground into the carpet). Or, for a few bucks, you can buy several bags of fake flower petals at a craft store and reuse them next year.
Provide Crafts For The Kids
Help the kids celebrate Valentine’s Day by helping them make a Valentine’s Day craft. It’s not hard, nor expensive to find a great Valentine’s Day craft. All it takes is some willing helpers, some supplies, and a creative idea. Try something simple like cutting heart shapes from construction paper. A craft that they can give as a gift to their parents will make the event even more special.
Share The History Of Valentine’s Day
The story behind Valentine’s Day is a fascinating account of deep love, steadfast faith, and God-given courage. Like the message communicated in the Valentine’s Day Video, this is a day that has enormous significance for Christians. Tell your people about it.
