Mother’s Day is about a month away on May 13 and we want to invite you to celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day.
That morning we will of course have our regular schedule with Sunday school at 9:45 a.m. and worship at 11:00 a.m. to honor the Lord who gave us the gift of families. The music and message will focus on our moms! That evening we won’t hold any activities so our families can enjoy the day with their mothers.
A Mother’s Day Treat
A lot of people wonder what they can give their mother on Mothers Day. The greatest gift you can give her is your presence. That’s what she wants the most. Just show up. Maybe surprise her on that day by showing up at church and sit with her. Than after the service take her out to lunch or even better cook her a nice home-cooked meal. If you want, you can also find a gift. We think that the gift of your presence worshipping with her on Mothers Day will be the best gift of all.
Moms Invite Your Kids
Moms, consider inviting your kids to worship with you on that special day. Use guilt or whatever it takes. You can tell them that the best gift they can give you is your presence on Mothers Day for Sunday school, worship and maybe lunch afterwards.
Now I want to ask for your help. Consider making a very short video on your smartphone answering this question:
Why do you thank God for your mom?
Then send that video to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can message me a link to download it from somewhere. Text me or Facebook message me the link. I’m going to put these together in a video for Mothers Day at High Peak.
Make sure you hold your phone like the picture above. I can’t use videos shot with your phone in vertical mode (like you normally hold it). Hold it the way you would if you were watching a movie the long edges on top and bottom and the short edges on the left and right. Make sure there’s good light and sound too. Go outside or in a brightly lit room. If you have small children, the dads take video of your kids.
