I grew up with church women’s day themes. I grew up in the Church of God in Christ (or COGIC) church. Even as a girl, I loved Women’s Day. It was a time I could see the women of the church lead the service, and it was always powerfully anointed and inspirational. It often meant a guest speaker would come and teach that day, which was always exciting! For some reason, my favorite part is they all wore white. It was a beautiful site to behold.
Planning a Women’s Day church event is an opportunity to celebrate and empower the women – and the little girls- in your congregation.
To ensure a successful Women’s Day Sunday, start with a clear vision for it and a theme that will really resonate with your congregation. Notice, I did not just ay the women in the congregation. It is short-sided to think church Women’s Day themes are only relevant to women. That’s like saying women cannot be ministered to on regular Sunday services. God’s blessing has no gender.
This is where having a good women’s ministry comes in. When you have regular fellowship, you are more likely to know what the women care about.
This women's ministry post covers:
Please, PLEASE have a planning team for your Church Women’s Day Themes!
Collaborate with a diverse team of women who can bring unique perspectives and skills to the planning process. So often, when one person plans something there is a risk that the outcome is meaningful ONLY to that ONE person.
Consider a mix of spiritual, educational, and fun activities, such as guest speakers, guest soloists, theater, Christian poetry or spoken words, A Goldy Fashion show where women walk out clothed in a particular fruit of the Spirit (oooh, that’s a good idea!).

Market and get them excited!
Promotion is crucial, so pump the congregation up by promoting Women’s Day on various channels like church bulletins, social media, and word of mouth to spread the word.
Get those cute little mints called Andes Crème De Menthe, pass them out the week before, and say something like, “Get ready for a refreshing Women’s Day service next Sunday!
If you’re really good, have a little strip of paper and cut it into strips with a marketing saying.
I know that makes no sense.
It says :
|Join us next Sunday for a REFRESHING Women’s Day service!|
With careful planning and a focus on the needs and interests of the women in your church, you can create a memorable and meaningful Women’s Day event that strengthens the bonds of your congregation.
Let’s get to some church women’s day themes you can customize for your next Women’s Day event:
Women’s Day Theme Idea 1:
“Amazing Grace: God’s Unmerited Favor”
Theme Concept: “God’s grace – past, present and future”
I. Welcome and Explanation:
Welcome and greetings. Who says one person has to do the greeting? You could have two women or even three do the welcome or greeting.
– Be sure the welcomers explain the women’s day event’s meaning and significance. Recite Women’s Day events from the past, if possible.
II. Opening Worship:
– Praise and worship songs that emphasize God’s grace and love, some examples are:
III. Scripture Reading:
Reading of relevant passages that highlight God’s grace. Here are some examples:
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
20 The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
2 Corinthians 12:9:
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
IV. Spiritual Creativity: Praise Dancers, Poetry Reading, etc.
A hymn that reflects the theme of God’s grace.
Or play this beautiful poem called G.R.A.CE. by Shawndra Lucas. 🙂 I love this!
V. Testimonies of God’s Grace:
- Have three women share their personal testimonies of how God’s grace has impacted their lives. Try to choose some diversity ethnically and age-wise. For instance, you can have a testimony from a teen girl, a young adult woman, a senior citizen, and a middle-aged woman.
You can even have someone share how they showed or received grace from someone else.
VI. Offering and Giving:
- The speaker delivers a message centered on God’s grace, exploring its depth, significance, and application in daily life.
- It is a time for giving, where attendees can express their gratitude through financial offerings.
VII. Special Music:
V.III Words of instruction:
“The Abundance of God’s Grace”
- A choir performance or soloist singing a song related to gr
IX. Prayer of Thanksgiving:
- A prayer of gratitude for God’s grace in our lives.
- Closing prayer and blessing for the congregation.
Additional Activities (Optional):
Depending on the church’s preferences and resources, you can include additional activities like a grace-themed video presentation, a skit, or a panel discussion on living by God’s grace.
Remember to incorporate moments of reflection and worship throughout the service to create a meaningful and spiritually enriching experience. We do this every Sunday at my church. I think it’s from my husband’s background as an educator. We always have a reflection, and he asks, “What did you learn today? and “Who can you share this with?
Church Women’s Idea Theme #2:
This one of my church women’s day themes is all about God’s joys: “Walking and living in God’s Joy.”
I. Welcome and Announcements:
- Welcome and greeting by the church first lady or pastor’s wife.
- Announcements regarding upcoming events and church news.

- A prayer to invite God’s presence and joy into the service.

- This theme is about JOY, Lady! So, after the service, provide a time for fellowship and refreshments, allowing attendees to continue sharing in the joy of community. You could even incorporate some fun games!
Give everyone post-it notes when they enter the service and direct them to write one thing that gives them joy or something the Lord has done in the past week for them that sparked joy.
You could even be strategic and have them write something from the women’s day service they learned about joy or sparked joy for them!
Women’s Day Idea 3: Women of Purpose
Theme Concept: “Unveiling Purpose: Discovering Your Calling in Christ”
For this church women’s day theme, I think having multiple women speak would be a great idea instead of just one. Scroll down and see what I mean.
- Now that you’ve read through my other two church women’s day themes, you know how to do a welcome now. 🙂 Some great people to do it are mothers and daughters (together), one of the elderly church “mothers,” teen girls from the youth group – or a member of your planning team.

- Praise and worship songs that focus on God’s guidance and purpose.
- A prayer to seek God’s presence and guidance throughout the event.

- Attendees break into small groups to share their thoughts, experiences, and insights about discovering their purpose.

- Lunchtime for attendees to connect and continue discussions.

- A time of worship, reflection, and prayer to commit to living out one’s purpose.
XII. Closing Remarks:
- Thank attendees for their participation during your fantastic church women’s day themes you’ve chosen, and encourage them to continue their journey of purpose. Maybe you can invite the ladies to follow the women’s ministry on Facebook or social media to keep the conversation going.
XIII. Closing Worship:
- Worship songs that inspire commitment and dedication to living out one’s purpose.
Depending on resources and preferences, you can plan future activities for the ladies, like creative arts workshops, testimony sharing, or a panel discussion luncheon or prayer breakfast featuring women who have found their calling in Christ.
Remember, this church women’s day themes program is designed to help women explore their identity, spiritual gifts, and unique calling in Christ, fostering a sense of purpose and direction in their lives.
