Mother’s Day Music Ministry Ideas

This is a collection of Mother’s Day Music Ministry Ideas. Seasonally I see questions throughout the year about songs to sing in church that show the holiday or special day their church is focusing on, this article will focus on music especially for Mother’s Day. These can be used for Mother’s Day events like Mother-Daughter banquets as well as be sung on Mother’s Day itself.

Music ministry ideas can vary, just switch up your song groups to focus on the song’s purpose.

Song Group Ideas

  • Choir special
  • A group of young girls or boys, or combined
  • Your children’s choir
  • A teen group or choir
  • A group of women singing to their children
  • A combined group of young girls, teen girls, and mothers singing
  • A men’s group singing to their mothers
  • Older women singing a message to younger mothers

Mother’s Day Song Ideas

I have included links to sheet music and videos if I have access to them, to help you find them easily.

My Mother’s Prayers written by pastor’s wife Julia Montoro – video here. Good for a mixed group of young girls, older girls, and mothers, or for a mother-daughter group.

I Love You This Much – written by Sandy Blythe – video here

A Song for Mothers written by Abigail Miller – hymn style or extended version – video here. This would be a song to be sung by a mother of children still living at home.

The Vision of a Mother’s Heart by Abigail Miller – Video here.

I Know written by Heidi Fuller – Video here. This is a song about the godly lesson a mother learned about losing a child (through birth and adoption through a personal story), as God says that He also knows the pain of loss. Best sung by a mother.

More Than Enough by Shawna Edwards – Video here – Great for a children’s choir, or a smaller children’s group with some older teens.

Hello Mama by Squire Parsons – Video – Found in the Living Legacy Songbook. Sung by a male solo, as it speaks about the changes in a man’s life since he has met Christ.

Always There written by Nikki Lott at Christian Compositions. This song compares a mother’s love with God’s love which is “Always There.”

Leviticus 19 Ministry Advice

I was reading through Leviticus 19 recently and found some great ministry advice… really, it is just practical for Christian living.
bible-verses.jpg
1. Don’t be a talebearer. (No gossip allowed.) Verse 16, “Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people…” 
2. Don’t hate thy brother in thy heart. (No jealousy or covetousness allowed either.) Verse 17a, “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart..”  

3. Sometimes confrontation of sin is necessary. Verse 17b, “Thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him.” 

4. Don’t avenge or hold a grudge against your neighbor. (Forgive.) Verse 18a, “Thou shalt not avenge, or bear any grudge against the children of thy people…” 
5. Love your neighbor like you love yourself. (Serve and love and serve and love again.) Verse 18b, “But thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the Lord.” 

Emphasize God’s Provision with Your Children

Don’t you love when God shows His love and faithfulness to your children!? It’s one thing to know what God has done for you, as a parent, and really want your children to see God’s goodness and know He’s really at work in their lives too.

Last week we went to Costco to work on getting a new pair of frames for our son whose glasses had broken — welding came apart previously and then a nose piece fell off in a bounce house last week. He walked around all weekend squinting and strained. The man explained we could buy a new pair of frames that fit his lenses for $50 or he could get a whole new set of frames and lenses for $100. I thought $50-100 would be cheaper than having to do the entire exam and purchase again so I consented to go ahead.

The optician popped out IMG_1798.JPGthe lenses and of course asked me if all of our kids were mine (yes, all 5!). He discussed with Dos (our 2nd child) how the glasses came apart and then adjusted them to fit our son just right. Then, when I pulled out my card to pay the optician barely nodded his head no. I asked him what I needed to pay and he allowed us to be able to just take the frames at no charge. While I know frames don’t really cost $50, I pointed out to our kids that God had provided that for our son and was a blessing and a gift from God. I emphasized as we continued to walk around Costco about how God takes care of us and saw them smile at His goodness. I wanted them to see the blessings and provisions God gives when we specifically give to Him our offerings and tithes.

I just want to encourage you, Ministry Mamas, to make a point to highlight in conversation when God blesses your children. They don’t always see it or view good things as a blessing from above. It will help train them to see that every good and perfect gift comes from God and help them to see a positive outlook of life even in a sin-cursed world.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
