How Your Church Can Make The Most of Mother’s Day

For many churches, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to reach out to the mothers in their congregation and community.  By hosting special events or offering unique services, churches can show moms how much they are appreciated. For example, some churches may host a brunch for mothers and their families. Others may offer childcare during Sunday worship so that mothers can relax and focus on the sermon. Some churches even give out gifts to mothers on Mother’s Day. No matter what form it takes, church ministry on Mother’s Day is a great way to show God’s love to moms.

If you’re looking for ways to make moms feel extra special at church this Mother’s Day, here are a few ideas. First, you could consider giving gifts to all the moms in attendance. This could be something small and thoughtful, like a potted plant or a box of chocolates. Alternatively, you could recognize mothers during the service with a special prayer or song. Whatever you do, take the time to let the moms in your church community know how much they are appreciated.

One way to celebrate moms on Mother’s Day is to show a video during your church service of kids talking about their moms. They can share funny stories or just share why they love their Mom.  This is a great way to let the mothers in your church know how much they are loved and appreciated. Another way to celebrate mothers on Mother’s Day is to let some of the Moms in your church share from the stage why they love being a Mom and offer encouragement to other Moms in the congregation. This will give other moms in your church someone to relate to and will also let them know that they are not alone in the challenges they face. Finally, your church can make a donation to a women’s organization that supports mother’s in the community that need help through a tough situation.

Mother’s Day can be a hard day for people who have recently lost their mom, are having fertility issues or don’t have the best relationship with her. This is all too common so it might make sure to take that into account while planning your service.  This is an opportunity to show love, care, and support to those who are hurting on Mother’s Day.
