Last Tuesday we had another rockin’ #ChSocM church social media chat.  One of the topics up for discussion…

Clever ideas for using #chsocm for Valentine’s Day?

Here are 14 of the ideas shared by chat participants…

1) Maybe a “love your neighbor” campaign type thing….?? @PastorJenna

2) we are posting daily “love” scripture texts on FB. Pleasantly surprised how many people click on them to read them. @revjenn

3) Connect with people who feel a little more lonely on #ValentinesDay, and invite them in to community. @crazypastor

4) Valentine’s Day is another big Chocolate day. Another chance to educate about fair trade and justice. @FatPastor

5) I will probably post about the real Valentine @PastorJoelle

6) Our school kids are making ecards that the senior citizens in the computer learning class will open @Conductor222

7) Valentine’s Day is also a great opp for churches to serve parents by caring for kids on a date night. @paulsteinbrueck

8) How making/sharing a meme of Jesus with the caption: Who love you, baby? @RevWeb

9) Remind everyone they are loved EVERYDAY! #YouAreBeloved @thelepper

10) Hold a Blood Drive and hand out chocolates to blood donors! @MeredithGould

11) Used 1 Cor 13 on blog to talk about God’s love through storytelling link @caseyfitzgerald

12) flip the script – tell the world that God’s LOVE is for creation, animals, people – not just romantic love @J_at_Seminary

13) I could envision an instagram/twitter campaign to post pictures answering question, “What is love?” @FatPastor

14) Our church is doing vow renewals on 2/15 – should publicize on @vcwoodbury

Bonus: It’s also the perfect excuse to quote risque verses from Song of Solomon. 😀 @paulsteinbrueck

Read the full transcript of the chat here.


  1. What is your church doing on social media to tie into the Valentine’s Day holiday?
  2. Got any other ideas?

I invite you to join tonight (and every Tuesday) at 9 PM Eastern time for #ChSocM

  • Amazing post.Possibly its not the most original idea you've ever heard,however its a good one.Valentine's Day is about love.Since its on the mind,you should capitalize on the occasion.You have a great deal of preaching material to browse,however.The whole Bible is a book about love.Check out these PowerPoint sermon templates for love-topic sermons.Thank you so much.

  • This is one of the best resources I have seen in a long time. Posted to our non-fiction marketing blog, letting them know to substitute book sales for traffic. While it is great for blog traffic, the ideas work beyond blogging for writing book descriptions or sales pages also. Thank you for putting this together!Asking questions are truly good thing if you are not understanding something fully, except this article presents pleasant understanding yet.

  • Its a great one and also a beautifully crafted one. looking forward for more from this website.I read all of article of the site the article was very nice go and check it out!

  • WOW, I found the article which you posted in 2014, also very useful 🙂 Paul, I didn’t know that you have already been an expert before 🙂 Great!
