Operation Valentine is a Valentine-themed service project for kids that’s a perfect way to help kids to put 1 John 4:19 into action! This download includes everything you need to execute a successful service project with kids for collecting, packing, and distributing care packages to residents of a local nursing home, or you can modify the details to put together care packages for the local fire station, hospital, police station, etc.
Use the provided Canva templates (using Canva is free!) to promote the event and collect needed donations from kids and church members before the event. At the event, kids pack the supplies into bags/care packages, make cards to put inside the bags, and pray over the bags and the people who will receive them. The event also includes a Valentine’s-Day-themed lesson on 1 John 4:19 to use at the beginning or end of the event.
