5 Ways Churches Can Bless Moms on Mother’s Day
April 28, 2021

Who doesn’t love Mother’s Day? It is the one designated day when we get to pamper our moms and try to thank them for just being so awesome! And it is almost that time of year again!

Did you know that Mother’s Day is the third most likely day – after Easter and Christmas – that people will attend church?

So, pastor, are you ready to celebrate all the wonderful mothers who will be attending your church services on Mother’s Day weekend? This year, why not go a step beyond a special prayer and time of blessing for mothers? We’ve put together five meaningful Mother’s Day ideas to help you bless their socks off:

Mother’s Day Greetings That Honor all Moms

Mother’s Day can mean different things to different people. For many it represents the celebration of life and great joy. For others it could be a reminder of a struggle or a mark of grief. Take care to ensure that you don’t honor some moms, while alienating others. In an open letter to pastors {A non-mom speaks about Mother’s Day}, Amy Young paid a moving tribute to all moms. You could also consider sharing similar thoughts in your Mother Day’s greetings. Here is a glimpse of Amy’s poem that went viral:

“To those who gave birth this year to their first child – we celebrate with you

To those who lost a child this year – we mourn with you

To those who have warm and close relationships with your children – we celebrate with you

To those who have disappointment, heartache, and distance with your children – we sit with you

This Mother’s Day, we walk with you.”

What other ways can you honor all mothers through your welcome speech?

Let’s Hear it From the Moms

Pick three or four mothers from your congregation and ask them to share their experiences of motherhood. It will be inspiring, encouraging and powerful to hear the real, honest struggles and joys of these mothers. These stories will be reassuring to other moms who might be facing similar struggles. And more importantly, they are bound to stir up new admiration and respect for the thankless job that moms do!

Get the Kids on Video

In the week leading up to Mother’s Day, take video clips of a few children thanking their moms and telling them what they love most about them. This will be especially great if your church is meeting online only. Surprise the moms by playing the video on Mother’s Day. Could a mom want anything more than knowing that her child loves her? This is going to be a tear-jerker. Get the tissues ready!

Teach Kids About Honoring Their Parents

Teach the kids what it really means to honor their mother and father and why it is important. Practice scripture memorization such as Colossians 3:20 “Children obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord” and Ephesians 6:1 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”

The moms are definitely going to appreciate that! Wrap up by getting the kids to make Mother’s Day cards or crafts they can give to their mothers to have as a keepsake. 

What other practical examples can you use to teach kids to obey and honor their parents?

Get a Space for Kids That Will Make Moms Happy

What could mothers want more than a safe and fun environment for their kids? At Portable Church, we take the children’s area very seriously. We have helped many mobile churches set up secure and comfortable children’s spaces in different venues, including a school gymnasium and a movie theater!

Mothers want to know that their children are safe, happy and entertained. When we helped a church in New York move into a movie theater, it turned out to be the ideal venue for their kids’ ministry. We converted the theater into a kid-friendly church by transforming three theater areas into fun and safe environments for different age-groups. The moms loved it!

Are your children’s areas fun, spacious and secure?

Do you have any other Mother’s Day ideas for churches? We hope that you can really bless all the moms that attend your church this year.
