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 2021 – August 2022), you will have two options for becoming a “Secret Sister”.
For many years, Secret Sisters exchanged small gifts throughout the year. Last year due to the pandemic, our method of encouragement took a new twist—sending cards from home. This proved to be very successful and preferred by some of the ladies, so this year you can choose how you would like to participate—through cards or gifts.
If you choose to be a card-sending Secret Sister, you can send cards (homemade or purchased), notes, postcards or anything you can creatively tuck in an envelope through the mail. 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! Your financial commitment would be the cards and stamps.
If you choose to be a gift-giving Secret Sister, you can leave your gifts and cards on the Secret Sister table at church in the atrium. (If you choose this option, you are also welcome to send cards to your Secret Sister as well.) Your financial commitment would be your gifts, which are intended to be small tokens of friendship.
Your commitment is to pray for your Secret Sister during the year and—depending on your choice—to remember her on special days with your cards or small gifts. There are plenty of ways to remember your “S.S.”—“praying for you”, “thinking of you”, as well as special days throughout the year including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, birthday, anniversary, etc. There may be an occasional social event announced and there is a final “reveal” gathering at the end of our 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.
New participants are welcome to join at anytime during the year. Occasionally Secret Sisters need to leave the program and that is possible too.
Getting involved is super easy!
1. Please use the contact form on this page to sign-up and provide your email address by September 15. (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 so we can begin as soon as possible in October.
I’ve loved being a part of Secret Sisters over the years!
Being a Secret Sisters is a really fun way
to make new friends in our church family –
to pray, love and encourage each other throughout the year.
Secret Sisters has a very long tradition at Valley --
I welcome you to join us!
