Mother’s Day is Coming

Mother’s Day is Coming

Did you notice it is already March?  I wanted to get your mind set on a project you can do to support the needs of expectant families in your area – host a “Baby Shower” at your church for Mother’s Day.

This can be as elaborate or informal as you choose.  Some churches put up boxes on Mother’s Day weekend to collected gently used items which they donate to a local shelter or crisis pregnancy center.  Some churches have a get together for all the new mothers in their church, helping them build relationships with the more experienced mothers for mentoring and friendship.  Some churches do a Blessing God’s Way for the mothers who are expecting, helping to celebrate the role of the mother.

There are many opportunities to serve within your church and community, but they all take some preparation work.  You still have time to set something up.  Let me know what your end up doing.
