Veteran's Day Activities and Ideas

Little Things Mean A Whole Lot –Veterans Day Letters

Writing letters to soldiers/veterans in your church is something you might like your children (depending on their age you might have to help them) in your Sunday School class to participate in for Veterans Day. You can include other ideas/gifts besides a letter if you want. Here are some Veterans Day letter samples below you can download and use. Here are also some guidelines to use for your letters:

  • Address each letter “Dear Hero” or “Dear Defender of Freedom” - This will avoid titles that would limit who the letter is going to such as “Dear Marine” we could not give to an Airman…it would be an insult.
  • Thank him/her for their service - You can have them put this in their own words as long as thank them for serving our great country, America.
  • Send a snapshot or photo - The troops overseas or veterans at home love seeing who wrote the letter, so feel free to include a family photo with your letter.
  • Have children draw a picture - Pictures drawn by children are a very popular to the veterans/soldiers for one of your Veterans Day activities. It’s a constant reminder of who they are fighting to protect or who they have already fought to protect.

Church Honoring Veterans on Veterans Day

Here are some more Veterans Day activities for the church. A special get together with family, friends and church family is always wonderful. Have a formal ceremony where the young men of the age group (13 and up) could present the colors (the Christian Flag and the American Flag) with all rising to sing “God Bless America”, “Onward Christian Soldiers”, etc. immediately followed with the pledge to the Christian flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. Each family, group of friends and church family usually has someone that can speak well, now would be the time to present a 15 minute discussion about why Veterans Day should be honored from a Christian worldview. If possible, encourage all to bring pictures of family momentos of any family member(s) that has served the United States during war as either a soldier or a support person. It is so important to our young people to recognize and be aware of how much others have sacrificed so they might have freedom today. Close the portion of the gathering with the oldest male (i.e., patriarch) leading prayer followed with everyone verbally saying the Lord’s Prayer and/or the 23rd Psalm.

Veterans Day Posters

Veterans Day activities can start before Veterans Day. Shortly before Veterans Day, encourage your Sunday School class to design Veterans Day posters expressing the meaning of this hold and how important that is must be recognized to be posted in the church, local library, post office, community bulletin board or other community places.

What Would it be Like to be a Veteran/Soldier

Have your Sunday School class to write a paper on…what is would be like to be a soldier/veteran in World War I, World War II, etc. Also, what it would be like to be the family member waiting and praying for their soldier…the heavy price of freedom and liberty…etc.

Veterans Day Military Branches

Visitor Testimonials

*I wanted to take a minute (during my email time slot) to thank you for all this work you do and share with the small church community. You and your staff (if you have some) are very much a blessing. Thank you, Elizabeth - PA - U.S.
*Terressa! I received the discs today!! A few years back I was at a small church that used your software and it was perfect for their volunteers to use. The church I am at now has 2 volunteer secretaries and one found your product and I gushed!!! Her first request is a directory so this will be perfect. God Bless you for creating such a great system (Shepherdbase). Regards - Tonya - OK - U.S.
*This is the 1st time I've visited your website and I just wanted to say "thank you". I go to a very small Christian Church and thanks to you, the forms you have for a children's ministry will keep me from having to "reinvent the wheel" and I am very grateful to you. We are a very small church (about 40 regular attendees) and 90% of those are over 65. We just had a young couple offer to help us get a Youth Group. Thanks to you, we won't have to do to much to get this off and running for the holiday season. Thanks again! - Kentucky - U.S.
*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer

Thank you Shepherdbase!
