Creative Mother’s Day Ideas for Church

Mother’s Day Ideas

Well it’s that time of year again.  Here’s a collection of Mother’s day video clips and creative ideas of how you can celebrate Mother’s day in your Sunday Worship service.  Also make sure to read this “An open letter to pastors {A non-mom speaks about Mother’s Day}”  

Mothering God

Isaiah 66:13 “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

One theme to tackle is the connection between God and motherhood.  We did an entire service based on this theme and talked about letting God be bigger then our boxes or definitions.  You can read about the whole service here.  God in a Box


A default idea for Mother’s Day would be to include kids in some way.  Maybe saying things they like about their Mom, giving flowers to their mothers, handing out flowers in the foyer etc.

This year, we had the idea to make one giant Mother’s Day card in Sunday School the week before Mother’s Day and place it in the foyer Sunday Morning.  That way, when Mothers come in to the foyer they are greeted by this giant greeting card.

Just Like Me – Igniter Media

Here’s a new one from Skit Guys – I think it’s a bit on the long side but if you are looking for something really sentimental this can be a good fit.

Being Mom 

A Very Special Mommy

Best Job In The World – It’s a commercial and based on olympics but I think they really nailed it on the emotion and sentiment of Mother’s Day.

  1. Thanks for including the letter I wrote to pastors! Super grateful. I’ve got another letter coming out in a week or two that will include a prayer/blessing called “Beyond the Surface of Mothering” and uses about 20 illustrations of mothering from the scripture. My hope,like yours, is to help equip pastors. What would be a good way to share the next letter with you? Again, thanks :)! Amy

  2. It can be hard to feel like less of a woman at church on Mother’s Day because God hasn’t brought a husband and family into your life and you’ve only loved and cared for other people’s children.

    I can’t imagine how the infertile, mothers of lost children, those who have miscarried must feel…

  3. Thank you! I will check out that link. I’m interested in the last one, “Mother’s Day Blessings” – though “Mighty” is great too.
