Valentine’s Day Children’s Message: Sharing Your Heart

Use this Valentine’s Day Children’s Message: Sharing Your Heart to show your children’s ministry kids the depth of God’s love.

Theme: Valentine’s Day

Text: 1 John 4:10-11

Preparation: Give kids each an 8 1/2X11-inch sheet of red paper as they enter the classroom or church. You’ll also need a larger sheet of red paper for everyone to see.


Valentine’s Day Children’s Message: Sharing Your Heart

Say: Today we’re going to use our red papers to tell a story about a girl who didn’t get any valentines at school.

Ask:

  • How do you think she felt?

Say: This girl was so sad she decided to take a walk in a large meadow with red, spring flowers. Hold up your large paper and encourage others to do as you do. She came to a small garden of red tulips. She got tired and lay down. It was a little cold, so she put some flowers over her as a blanket. Fold your paper in half. When she awoke, she saw an arrow. The arrow was pointing to a curving stream. Tear the shape of half a heart on the folded edge.

Say: As she walked to the stream, she got very excited and happy because she remembered something she learned in church. Read 1 John 4:10-11.

Say: She ran home and made a valentine for all her friends so she could share the great love God had given to her. Open paper to reveal a heart. This Valentine’s Day, share God’s love with as many people as possible. Give your heart to someone you care about.

  1. Omg. Sooooooo wanted to do your children sermon but I wasted so many sheets of paper trying to make the heart. It does not work. Cute story—would be a good lesson/sermon but can’t figure out the Valentine -so sad. It is called Valentine’s Day children message—sharing your heart. Too bad you do not have a video. ;(.
