Mother's Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is so very special in many ways. Being a mother myself and if you’re a mom you can relate that you’re not automatically assigned the job of “chief worrier”. Instead, fill your heart with trust, hope, and God’s peace. Believe me you will sleep so much better at night.

Remember this verse in Matthew (chapter 6, verses 25, 26): Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

It’s so easy for us to worry about all these everyday necessities but He is trying to tell us something here that if we just simply trust and believe in him and seek nourishment for our souls first the rest will be added unto us. Always remember prayer changes things.

Mother's Day Church Ideas

It’s that time of year when your church is celebrating Mother’s Day. There is high energy, high attendance at church with a smiling, eager congregation. There’ll be extra guests –sons, daughters, and grandchildren attending church services with their mother. There will be new mothers, pregnant moms, substitute moms, stepmothers, foster moms, and grandmothers. What an opportunity!

It’s time to get creative with new fresh ideas such as:

  • Mother’s Day Dinner - Have your fathers prepare a dinner for the mothers after the church service or before the service to serve their mom, wife, grandmother...a wonderful meal. Have some of the youth in your church babysit the children so the moms can enjoy their dinner without having to feed their children.
  • Recognize the Mothers - You can recognize the mothers by having a small gift for the oldest mom in the church, the youngest mom, the mom with the most children, and even the mom with the most children in the church service.
  • Mom and Me Video - Have your tech team to interview the children and prepare a montage of testimony clips explaining why “My Mom’s the Best!” Another idea is to invite your youth group to prepare a short video to honor their mothers, or gather dozens of photos of church members with their mothers for a slide show set to music. You can use the video for pre-service viewing or play it along with an appropriate music special.
  • Children’s Scripture Reading - Choose an appropriate Scripture to teach your elementary age children. Have the kids march into the church, spread out around the worship center, then quote the Scripture in unison.

The Mother's Day coloring pages and the Mother's Day Bible Quotes/Verses are new pages below listed under New/Recent Free Church Forms Web Pages.

Mother's Day History

In 1872, Julia Ward Howe was known to make the first known suggestion of Mother’s Day in the United States. She suggested that everyone observe the day on June 2 as a day dedicated to peace. Others around the country also campaigned for a Mother’s Day including Anna Jarvis of West Virginia who campaigned for a nationwide observance of Mother’s Day. She chose the second Sunday in May and started the custom of wearing a carnation. If a person wears a colored carnation, their mother is living, and a white carnation signifies that their mother has passed away.

In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a joint resolution of Congress recommending that Congress and the executive branch of government recognize the observance of Mother’s Day.
