Unique ways churches are celebrating the Hallmark holiday with their communities.
1. Compass Church in Winona, Minnesota, throws a Valentine’s dance at the local inn—just for singles. The event is designed to be fun, inviting and for those tired of online dating or blind setups—another opportunity to meet people.
2. Salem United Church of Christ in Columbia, Pennsylvania, offers a free Italian dinner and one-act show for couples seeking an inexpensive yet fun evening out. Church volunteers serve as waiters and waitresses, and local thespians provide the entertainment.
3. First Presbyterian Church in Iron Mountain, Michigan, hosted a party for children with special needs in their community—complete with heart-shaped treats, singing and lots of valentines.
