SECRET SISTERS (SHHHHH! Can You Keep a Secret?)
Would you like to be a “Secret Agent” of encouragement, love and prayer for one of your Sisters in Christ here at Valley? This year (September 2020 – August 2021), “Secret Sisters” has a new twist!
This year you can easily be someone’s “Secret Sister” from home—all you will need is an envelope, stamp and a note or card to tuck inside to bless your Secret Sister anonymously with your prayers and encouragement!!! Who doesn’t love getting a loving message in the mail?
For many years, the Secret Sister program at VCC has been a fun and favorite ministry for many women of all ages. However, this year, due to the pandemic, it has become a challenge to continue the traditional format of gift exchanges throughout the year between participating “Sisters”. Also, large group face-to-face gatherings like the Secret Sister Annual Spring Dinner/Brunch are now limited for our safety.
Our new plan is to send your Secret Sister cards, homemade cards, notes, postcards or anything you can creatively tuck in an envelope through the mail. There are plenty of special days throughout the year to remember your Secret sister: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, birthday, anniversary, etc. You will be provided with address labels for your Secret Sister and return address labels from VCC to make things even more secret and easy for you!
Getting involved is super easy!
1. Please use the contact form on this page to sign-up and provide your email address by the end of September. (The sooner the better.)
2. Jody Thiesfeld will confirm your address, birthday, and any information you would like to share with your Secret Sister.
3. You will be assigned a Secret Sister and receive her contact information.
4. We’ll aim to get rolling by October.
Throughout the year if you have any prayer requests that you would like to share with your Secret Sister, you can contact Jody Thiesfeld and she will pass on your request, helping you remain anonymous. There is no financial commitment other than your card and stamp! (Your commitment is to pray for your Secret Sister!) Please note: New participants are welcome to join at anytime during the year! Also, sometimes Secret Sisters need to leave the program and that is possible too.
I’d like to thank Sheri Lynch for the many years that she has so faithfully and lovingly coordinated the Secret Sister ministry! This year she is going to participate and I will be taking her place. I’m looking forward to being a part of Secret Sisters with you this year! I’ve loved being a part of Secret Sisters and encourage you to join too if you haven’t in the past!
