Worship Songs for Mother's Day 2023

Song ideas for your Mother's Day church service.

Song ideas for your Mother's Day church service.

This Mother's Day, worship leaders all around the world are going to be combing through their favorite worship songs to find something that exemplifies everything this holiday stands for. As we celebrate mothers, we have an incredible opportunity to both thank God for working through them and for loving us as His children in a similar way. Mother's Day is a chance to truly reflect on the parental nature of God, and your worship song selection can play a huge role in helping the church community to do just that.

Celebrate Mother's Day with Your Favorite Worship Songs

Often, though not always, a preacher will use the mother's day service to deliver a message that discusses a mother's love alongside the love of Christ. While many people can easily write off mother's day as something that may not need to be brought to the service, there are plenty of songs dedicated to the same ideals we celebrate each mother's day. As you reflect on your own mother and the way we see God reflect in a mother's love, some of your favorite worship songs could very well enhance the meaning of the day.

The Feelings People Bring to Mother's Day

Here's the key question you should ask yourself as you put together a worship setlist: what feelings will the congregation be carrying in with them this Sunday? Mother's Day can mean a variety of different things for everyone. Some may be celebrating the close relationship they have with their parents, while some others may be grieving, and others may even be looking for a reminder of how God fills the gap of parental love that they've been missing. Finding Mother’s Day songs might seem like a challenge, but as you reflect on each of these emotions you may find that more worship songs speak to these ideas than you initially thought.

Don't Carry All the Pressure Yourself

Putting together setlists as a worship leader can be stressful. Especially if you're relatively new to leading a worship team, these Sunday services that take place on 'special' holidays can feel like one big challenge. What if you choose wrong? How do you know if the songs you sing are the right fit? At the end of the day, you need to remember that this service isn't entirely on your shoulders. Collaborate with the other members of the worship team to figure out the best route forward, even if it's just asking someone whether they think a hymn or something more contemporary is best. Talk to the pastor in charge of the service as well! Hearing what they're going to be preaching can inspire some better ideas for songs.

Remember to rely on the spirit as well! As a worship leader, you are blessed with the opportunity to listen to God and help deliver the message he had for your congregation. Before putting together any worship setlist, spend plenty of time in prayer and allow Jesus to guide your decision-making.
