Large Church Valentine’s Day Activity: Secret Valentines
Our Sunday school sponsors a Secret Valentines program for our entire church each year. We ask everyone (ages 3 and over) to sign up after January 1. Then we assign each participant a Valentine and distribute names along with this note:
“For the next three weeks, pray daily for your Secret Valentine. You can send notes of encouragement, Bible readings, and small gifts each week through the Sunday school’s Valentine mail service. We’ll have a potluck on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, and there you’ll discover who your Valentine is.”
Our Sunday school office staff handles the mail delivery. And we always keep extra Valentines and small wrapped candies on hand for those who don’t receive mail.
Everyone enjoys our Secret Valentine program. One of our older members says he looks forward to it every year because it makes him feel like a kid again.
