Mother’s Day Event & Programs at Church

At my church, we celebrate Mother’s Day by hosting Muffins with Mom.  This is usually an hour before Sunday School begins.  We invite all mom’s and their children to celebrate her special day with muffins, juice, milk, and coffee.  We finish by taking a picture of Mom with her children and either make a bookmark or a small magnet to give her the following week.

    Because sharing and learning the bible is so important in our ministry, we select several women to speak on women of the bible who showed good character, courage. and wisdom in the face of opposition.

    At our church we have A Garden Party luncheon the Saturday before Mother’s Day. Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends. Celebrating ALL the special ladies in our lives.

    For the mothers at my church. All the children young and old, wrote a poem, big or small. Then what we wrote was cut out, paste on a colorful sheet of paper, and put in a nice frame. During the mothers day service the mother was called to the front of the church, each child read their poem to them then presented it to her as a gift. This was the most heart filling service I have ever seen. You would be amazed at what kids write about thier mother. Tears of joy fell from most of their eyes.

    The men at our church cook all the mothers breakfast that morning. And at worship service we have the children at church give their crafts they made to their mother. Also we give the oldest mother, youngest mother, one with the most children at church and new mother a red rose.

    We always give each mom a gift and have some readings and I have picked out one mom and made them mom for the day with a crown and testimonials .

    Hi all, on Mother’s Day at my church, the church presents all women with a carnation. During Sunday School, the children have their own service which is dedicated to their Mothers. The Sunday School gives each woman a token gift, i.e. pen, keychain, small purse etc.

    We usually have a special Sun Sch session for our mothers with special singing, poems etc.As they enter the church young men would present them with a rose or corsage. We sometimes conduct interviews with moms, get them to compete with quiz etc then we treat them to lunch after church compliments the men and children. Mel J.

    At our church we had everyone bring a picture of their mom & we scanned the pictures and taped the copied picture inside a flower cut-out of different colors of construction paper & used a hole punch then used curly ribbons of different colors cut chest length & tied in a knot. After this was completed we wrote the name of the person that gave you the picture and handed them out for everyone to wear Mother’s Day at church. We returned the original photo’s to each individuals. This was a Youth Service Ministry project.

    I love this idea. How impressive. Everything we do as a church should be centered around outreach and this is defiantly an awesome way to touch many homes!!

    We give out corsages. The oldest mom gets a white rose, the youngest mom gets a pink rose and the mom with the most child gets a white rose with red tips.

  13. LJ says

    Would you be willing to share with me the skits you you have used?

  14. LJ says

    Here are some ideas for giving gifts to moms:

    The mom with the most children/grandchildren present at the event.

    The mother who has come the farthest to be at the event.

    The newest mother.

    The mother with the oldest child

    The mother/daughter who look most alike.

    This may/may not be appropriate: The mother with the most adopted or foster children.

    The mom with the most children under age ________. (this could be the number of children under the age of 10, or whatever you choose).

    Hope this helps.

    we get the kids to say a poem for all mothers in church and we give a cake to the senior pastors wife which she later shares with all mums after the service and the kids make mothers day cards which they color and give to their mums.

    Our men get up early and fix a gourmet breakfast for ALL THE WOMEN in our congregation on Sunday morning before worship. They have amazing decorations on the tables, they women are formally served and it brings honor to all of them.

    Hi all!
    We have about the same type of program for our moms in our very small congregation thats been mentioned here. Music, Poems, gifts, etc…. But I’m needing some help. We usually give out about 5 “special gifts” to moms with the most kids, oldest, youngest etc.. I’m hoping someone can give ideas of other things we could ask just to make a change. Last year we added the mom wearing the most buttons. There are no young children to contribute so we’d like to still make it fun! Thanks for your ideas…so last minute. Have a great Mother’s Day!
