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:
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.
