Mother’s Day Ideas

*New Video* – Mother’s Day Reflection


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.  Check out a couple great posts by Amy Young about Mother’s day from a non-Mom’s perspective.

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

Include Kids

A common idea for Mother’s Day is to include kids in some way.

  • Have kids share things they like about their Mom in a sentence
  • Have the kids participate in giving flowers to their mothers after the service
  • Have your Sunday School classes work the week before Mother’s Day to create a giant Mother’s Day card and place it in the foyer for Sunday Morning.
  • Take a video camera to your Sunday School Classes a few weeks before Mother’s day and get some candid quotes from kids about their Moms.

Pick A Few Moms To Share Their Story

Pick 3 Mom’s in your congregation and have them share their journey of being a mother.  We’ve done this several times at our church and it’s incredibly refreshing and inspiring to hear Mom’s talk about the joys and struggles of being a mother.


There are always many themes to focus on each Sunday, but you can highlight some themes that connect with Mother’s Day by highlighting themes of compassion, care, rest, healing, tenderness, encouragement, etc.

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.
