The bulletin board outside the Children’s Ministry office has been looking a little bare and pathetic lately. Normally, I use it to post upcoming events, photos, and newsletters — but this month I decided to go with a holiday theme, namely Valentine’s Day. Here’s a few ideas I found for inspiration. Hopefully, they will inspire you too!
God’s Conversation Hearts
Speaking of conversation hearts, you can grab this super fun free printable from Made 2 Be Creative. Pair with the bulletin board display for double the impact!
This one isn’t EXACTLY Valentine’s Day, but it is super sweet and a great way to include everyone in the holiday, not just lovey dovey birds. 🙂 Or you could save the idea for Random Acts of Kindness Week which happens the same week as Valentine’s Day.
If you want to add a Biblical reference to the board, throw Psalm 119:103 into the mix: How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
The LOVE Chapter
Of course, Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the famous LOVE chapter: 1 Corinthians 13. Here’s a bulletin board that highlights all the components in an easy to read fashion. You can find the original image at Teacher Help.
The Greatest Commandment
I like the different shapes and textures on these hearts (eye-catching) and if you head to the original post you’ll see some super cool wrapping paper hearts Monica made as well.
Love Letter From God
I found this picture through a Google search, but couldn’t seem to track down the original source (this is the best I could do) I like the concept though, especially if you put these love verses on sheets of notebook paper blowing out of the box.
This classroom bulletin board (pictured below) gives you kind of the idea
John 3:16 (For God So Loved the World…)
This is my personal favorite from the mix, taken from School Supplies site. I love the stark black letters on the brown paper. I tried to recreate this on my bulletin board. Sigh. I won’t post pictures.
When You Think of Love…
I saw this wall display during my search and thought the idea could easily be adapted for an interactive Valentine’s Day bulletin board.
Instead of the peace question, write “I know God loves me because…..” and leave post it notes for your church members to write down a way that they feel God’s love. It might be a really cool way to get to know one another as well as give glory to God during this holiday!
