Mother’s Day will be here soon, and we want to share 10 fun ideas you can use in your church service that will deeply resonate with everyone in your audience.
Ready to note them down?
Here are some momentous and meaningful ideas for your best Mother’s Day ever—
1. Take photos.
What mom doesn’t like getting a picture of her family? And since she’s rarely in the photos, why not include her on this day? Set up a pretty backdrop with good lighting and have someone stationed to take photos before and after the service.
2. Share sentiments.
Have the kids in your church share a sentence or two about their moms (and other ladies in the church). Have a running scroll of the sentences on-screen before and after the service.
3. Make cards.
Invite the kids to make cards for every woman in the audience and distribute their cards at the end of the service.
4. Share stories.
Ask 3 or 4 women with varying experiences to share their stories so that everyone will identify with someone.
5. Donate offering.
Donate an offering to a women’s shelter, pregnancy center, or women’s ministry in your church. Or use the funds to launch a new women’s ministry.
6. Help someone.
Invite a single mom in the church or community to your service and pay off her mortgage, healthcare bills, or auto loan.
7. Pray together.
Use time in the service to pray for all the women represented—young, old, single, married, childless, mothers.
8. Have spares.
Keep a stack of cards and pens on hand for men who may have forgotten about the day or missed the chance to buy one.
9. Serve breakfast.
Who doesn’t love breakfast at church? But make it clear: No women are to help serve or clean up!
10. Be positive.
Keep the mood light and inclusive.
Bottom line: You won’t go wrong by creatively celebrating and encouraging every woman on Mother’s Day!
