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 81/2X11-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.

The Message: Today we’re going to use our red papers to tell a story about a girl who didn’t get any valentines at school. How do you think she felt? 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. (Fold your paper in half lengthwise.) She got tired and lay down. It was a little cold, so she put some flowers over her as a blanket. (Fold bottom corner up.) When she awoke, she saw an arrow. (Fold other bottom corner back.) The arrow was pointing to a curving stream. (Tear a rounded corner off the top.)

As she walked to the stream, she got very excited and happy because she remembered something she learned in church. (Read the scripture.)

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 Valentines Day, share God’s love with as many people as possible. Give your heart to someone you care about.
