Don’t miss our other free resource for teaching about God’s love on Valentine’s day. We also have a growing collection of Christian coloring pages that are free and easy to download or print.

Here is Elgin’s explanation of his color choices, this would be good talking points with the children as they work on their own sheets:

Our God is a consuming fire, thus the fiery color hands. The clouds where the hands KF could resend from represents heaven, his throne. Red symbolizes the blood Christ shed as well as the traditional red color of valentines day, and the heart. The box is purple, the color of royalty, symbolizing Christ as King. The Yellow rays symbolize his power, anointing, and divinity. It also points to the scripture that Jesus is the light of the world, and wants us, who receive him to be children of that light. The john three sixteen is Green, symbolizing growth and progression in the things of God, and our growing in Grace and knowledge of our Lord and savior. The globe, is obviously the world, who The father gives the Gift of Christ to many as would receive him,the globe is standing on the word of God, therefore is able to access the gift if God. Finally the ground is purple, again the color of Royalty upon which the Word, which is Holy is established. It is literally Holy Ground.

    God bless you for this site. We are a very small church with limited funds and I use this site 99% of the time for my mixed age Sunday School class. Everything posted here is topnotch and I couldn’t get along without your lessons and ideas. Keep them coming.

      So glad you loved the pictures and more glad that your stUdents will realize that it’s not just about receiving “candy hearts” and imaginary fairies who shoot love arrows!LOL! Drawing this helped me to realize how we as believers can and should always be ready to give an answer for the hope that’s within u. Every holiday can be used as a teaching moment.

    Thank you so much for your ministry with children and the willingness to share so much information. I teach the preschool age group in my small church, usually all I have are the Pastor’s grandchildren. I get many many ideas from your lessons plans, coloring pages and crafts. May God continue to Bless you for all you do for the Kingdom of Heaven.

  10. Sandra Ocasio says

    thank you so much for your work with the coloring pages for Valentine’s John 3:16 and your contribution to this wonderful ministry.

  11. Wayne Brazeal says

    I really like the new “click on the picture” tool to copy the art work for the Valentines lessons. It is so much easier to get a better defined copy for children to color. I have recently added children songs on John 3:16 and 1 John 4: 7& 8 which will add a musical dimension to the lesson.
    Last week we used February Calender art with the Super Bowl lesson which the kids really enjoyed!
    Thank you for all the help your site provides to teachers

  12. Jane Alvidera says

    Truly appreciate for sharing it to us. Kids will love it for sure and it’s fun for them. With the coloring activity you can see each child personality.

    Blessings,
