Mother's Day

Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.

Worship Ideas

  • Use this Mother's Day Liturgy found at
  • Be sensitive to people who have a tough time on Mother's Day. (The article "When Mother's Day Is Hard," by Jenell Williams Paris, shares a helpful perspective.)
  • Consider collecting baby items for a local pregnancy resource center.
  • Use the children's message to tell a Bible story about a mother and child: Moses' mother hiding him in the bulrushes, for instance.
  • Invite children to read Scripture or sing during the service.


  • Go, My Children, with My Blessing (Sing! A New Creation #284)
  • Loving Spirit (Sing! A New Creation #235)
