IMPACTFUL Biblical Themes for Women’s Day

Also, I’ve visited this topic before. You can view it here.

Let me explain Women’s Day to ensure you’ll find what resources I’m attempting to provide.

In my experience, the Women’s Day service in a church is a special event (or Sunday) dedicated to celebrating and honoring the contributions and roles of women – both within the church and the Bible.

It can ALSO be a service focused on building the women’s capacity to be stronger Christians.

This service can also highlight women’s spiritual, social, and cultural impacts in the congregation.

ideas for women's ministry

Women are often given leading roles in the service, such as delivering special messages, praying, reading scriptures, and participating in or leading the choir.

Biblical themes for womens day 4 1

We don’t have a Women’s Day service at our church, but we do have a Women’s choir.

Hmmm…I think that’s a conversation worth exploring.

Anyway, the Women’s Day service themes usually focus on issues pertinent to women and incorporate messages of empowerment, faith, and resilience.

Biblical themes for Women’s Day can offer an opportunity to nurture and educate both women and men within the congregation about our struggles, triumphs, and ongoing challenges.

Overall, the Women’s Day service is a special tradition that honors women’s important role and impact in the church. Don’t you love it????

Biblical themes for women's day

What I love the most about Women’s Day services is they can offer ladies encouragement and support.

Hey, this can happen by way of including special guest speakers, testimonies from women in the congregation, and presentations that showcase women’s talents and achievements.

That is why, when you pick Biblical themes for Women’s Day, you have a great opportunity to honor the women currently serving in the church and those who went on to be with the Lord.

Women’s Day services and events can keep their names in our minds and our mouths. So important, don’t you think?

Ok. Let’s get to it. Here are my theme ideas to inspire your next Women’s Day theme.

I think Mary demonstrated unwavering faith in God’s plan, right?

Plus, His plan was not one to be easily believed.

When the angel Gabriel announced Mary would bear the Son of God, she responded with humility and obedience.

Scripture: “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” (Luke 1:38)

You could pick parts of her prayer and highlight those Christian concepts during the service.

I’ve created a resource for you below. Download it to help you break the prayer into parts.

She completed God’s plan and even ensured folks had wine for a wedding. Check out John 2:1-11 for that story.

I think faithfulness is one of the most critical characteristics of Women in the Bible and Scriptures—I have a blog post here on that topic. Find a way to incorporate it into the theme you choose and make sure the congregation or attendees know Mary was faithful.

Here is a point or angle you could present from:

  • When I think of Mary, I also think of humility and obedience. She showed both in trusting God.
  • On Women’s Day, reflect on the strong faith women need to walk out God’s plans.
  • Maybe you can find women in the congregation who have exemplified strong faith. Do a slideshow on them, interview them, or post their testimony in the church program.

Esther showed incredible bravery by risking her life to save her people.

She approached the king, her husband, without being summoned, which may have led to her death.

Scripture: “And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

How courageous it must have been to help those Israelite spies.

Scripture: Read the book of Joshua, the second chapter.

  • She was a Canaanite prostitute residing in Jericho, a city destined for destruction by the Israelites.
  • Demonstrating faith in the God of Israel, she hid Israeli spies who were scouting the city.
  • She negotiated protection for her family and herself in return for her assistance when the Israelites attacked Jericho.

I like honoring her because, like us, she did not lead a perfect life, but God still honored her and even put her in Jesus’s lineage.

Deborah

Deborah, the prophetess and judge of Israel, provided wise and courageous leadership, guiding Barak to victory over the Canaanite army.

Scripture: “The villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until I, Deborah, arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.” (Judges 5:7)

This is the theme to recognize the ladies who are strategic thinkers. Women who serve as mentors or leaders within the church can be honored for their wisdom and guidance. Give them flowers or some other blessing.

Acknowledging their contributions not only celebrates their wisdom but also encourages others to seek mentorship and leadership roles.

I love her story. Known for her devotion, she prayed earnestly for a child and promised to dedicate him to the Lord. Her son, Samuel, became one of Israel’s greatest prophets.

Scripture: “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.” (1 Samuel 1:27)

Another point to consider is Hannah was wrongfully accused and misjudged (as drunk) by the priest. See below:

“Hannah was speaking silently from her heart. Although her lips were moving, her voice could not be heard. Eli thought she was drunk.”
I Samuel 1:13

What about this?

One idea is to use this woman’s story to encourage women not to be judgemental.

Instead, we shouldn’t take other women, especially younger ones, and judge them by a faulty perception.

Martha

I genuinely think Martha gets a bad rap.

She welcomed Jesus into her home and served Him diligently.

Though she was initially anxious about many things, Jesus gently reminded her of the importance of spiritual focus. I’d like to think she listened.

Scripture: “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41-42)

This Women’s Day theme could be a great reminder for women that they should not be stressed out over details in life when the best thing is to at Jesus’ feet.

No one is advocating for laziness but keep Jesus first.

Also, a good message is to lift up other sisters and not 1) go behind their backs and “tell on” them, 2) Tell them what you need from them, and

Ruth

No one who’s been a Christian for ten minutes is unfamiliar with Ruth’s story.

I featured her in my “Characteristics of a Godly Woman” “mini-class” video because of her story of commitment and perseverance.

Ruth was an obvious addition to this list.

She displayed steadfast loyalty to her mother-in-law, Naomi, and followed Naomi’s God.

Her loyalty was rewarded with a place in the lineage of Jesus.

Scripture: “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” (Ruth 1:16)

Not only did Ruth stick with Naomi when the other daughter left, but she stayed with her through weak seasons.

It’s not easy to be around bitter people.

Ruth showed Christ-like tolerance and patience by staying with Naomi and respecting her even when she was feeling lonely and negative.

“Don’t call me Naomi,” she told them. “Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter.”
Ruth 1:20

I see this as a great reminder to hang in there and not give up on one another. That’s a great message to deliver.

This Woman’s Day theme calls for a skit testifying to that very fact! A skit would be a great way to pull in the teen girls in your congregation.

Despite her own dire circumstances, she showed incredible generosity by sharing her last meal with the prophet Elijah. Her faith and kindness were rewarded with a miraculous provision.

Scripture: “For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.'” (1 Kings 17:14)

I love her story. It is full of many messages that would be perfect for a Biblical Women’s Day theme!

For one, the obvious is she was generous. She put the man of God first before herself.

Secondly, the Bible did not name her.

I’m sure she had a name. But, a lesson resided in the fact that it was not mentioned.

On your Women’s Day, reflect and share the message that we can achieve great and beautiful things for the Kingdom of God, even without public acclaim or recognition.

How could I NOT include this woman in this women’s ministry post on themes?

The Woman with the Issue of Blood

I love her because she showed strong faith by believing that touching Jesus’ garment would heal her.

Scripture: “She said to herself, ‘If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.’ Jesus turned and saw her. ‘Take heart, daughter,’ he said, ‘your faith has healed you.’ And the woman was healed at that moment.” (Matthew 9:21-22)

Her “God can do this” attitude is what stands out to me. But also her humility.

Her approach to Jesus, marked by quiet humility and hope for a miracle, teaches the value of pretentiousness in life and faith.

As women, we don’t need to be loud and boisterous to garner attention—He sees us, and His power heals us!

You could also build boldness into the contemplation of her as well as persistence.

Biblical themes for womens day

As I worked on this list for you, I asked myself, “Which do I like best for a biblical theme on Women’s Day?

The answer is all of them!

Every single one will be on target and effective, provided you maintain their relevance and simplify them into actionable concepts.

Let’s talk about doing that.

Remember when I reflected on seeing Women’s Day events as a little girl?

The women of those days were outstanding. They did so much more with much less than I currently have. They were trailblazers for me.

But make no mistakes about it.

Their journey was enormously different from my journey as a Christian woman in this current year.

What interested and intrigued them would likely bore me today.

That rings true for women even younger than me, as well.

I recognize while my ideas may seem good, putting them into practice might be more challenging than it appears. How can they be pertinent today?

In today’s world, where women play increasingly complex roles, I think it is vital to address their unique spiritual journeys and challenges through a biblical perspective in church services.

Themes such as “Women of Faith: Walking in God’s Purpose,” “Strength and Dignity: Embracing Our God-Given Identity,” and “The Power of Prayer: Women Interceding for Change” offer invaluable comfort and motivation.

Solid Biblical themes for Women’s Day that honor women’s profound strength, resilience, and faithfulness don’t have an expiration date.

While we “walk” out the path of being a Christian woman differently from those who came before us, the principles and Godly concepts are precisely the same.

The Godly qualities those women had, we still need.

The themes I’m sharing promote spiritual development and togetherness.

Biblical themes for women's day and that can help you plan for them

As a Christian woman, Women’s Day events hold a special place in my heart and life.

They are not just occasions; they can be memorable and profound celebrations of our unique roles and contributions to the modern-day church.

I personally believe they should – even if in a small way- tackle the immediate and ongoing challenges encountered today, including juggling professional responsibilities and family commitments, sustaining mental well-being, championing social rights, and fostering spiritual growth.

Connecting scripture to those challenges AND aligning them with real women in the bible will be empowering!

It helps bridge the gap between ancient wisdom and contemporary reality, ensuring that our faith is alive and applicable to today’s issues.

We just have to make sure the women know that.

Let me tell you why

Biblical Themes

I genuinely believe events like Women’s Day services could change the repugnance some women may feel about church.

Possibly. it can help them feel a connection with the other women.

In a recent study, one of the things “contributing to women’s disengagement from church communities is that they report finding little or no emotional support there (Barna Group, 2023).”

Consider this quote as you brainstorm your Biblical themes for Women’s Day.

Ladies can find a solid sense of solidarity and community in these faith-centered environments that uplift and encourage.

Moreover, the opportunity to hear and share personal testimonies is also invaluable.

biblical themes for Womens Day 5

When choosing a theme for a Women’s Day service at church, think about the following factors to ensure your theme is meaningful, relevant, and engaging:

  • Scriptural Basis: Ensure the theme is grounded in scripture and reflects Biblical teachings and values. Don’t let it just be a bunch of “hype.”
  • Relevance to Faith: The theme should encourage spiritual growth and a deeper understanding of God’s purpose for women.
  • Audience Needs: Understand the needs, interests, and spiritual maturity of the women in your congregation. Choose a Biblical theme that resonates with their current life situations and challenges. I even think considering the demographic is important as well.
  • Inclusivity: Ensure the theme is inclusive, addressing women of all ages, backgrounds, and stages of life.
  • Empowerment: The theme should inspire and empower women, encouraging them to live out their faith boldly, unapologetically, and confidently. YES!
  • Encouragement: Aim for a theme that offers hope and encouragement, particularly addressing issues that may be affecting women nowadays.
  • Actionable Insights: Choose a theme that offers practical advice and guidance on applying Biblical principles in daily life.
  • Personal Growth: The theme should facilitate personal and spiritual growth, helping women to grow in their relationship with God and each other.
  • Contextual Relevance: Be mindful of your congregation’s cultural and social context. The theme should be culturally relevant. I have such much to say here, but this blog post is long enough. 🙂
  • Current Issues: Consider contemporary issues facing women today, such as mental health, work-life balance, and social justice, and how they can be addressed from a biblical perspective.
  • Interactive Elements: Consider how the theme can be incorporated into various parts of the service, such as sermons, prayers, music, and activities. Keep it all cohesive and flow well.
  • Participation: Choose a theme that encourages active participation from the women in your congregation, whether through testimonies, discussions, or creative presentations.
  • Availability of Speakers: Consider the availability of guest speakers or leaders who are knowledgeable and passionate about the chosen theme. Here are some questions to ask your speaker.
  • Supporting Materials: Ensure there are enough resources, such as programs, articles, and multimedia content, to support the theme throughout the service. I love handouts and they don’t cost too much to produce.

I hate to present the worst-case scenario, but I want to warn you so you can avoid it.

Look, if you don’t consider all the implications of biblical themes for Women’s Day, several potential issues can arise, which could diminish the impact and possibly lead to misunderstandings or missed opportunities for spiritual growth.

Here is what “could” go wrong:

  • Disconnection: The theme may not resonate with the ladies, leading to a lack of engagement and interest. If the theme doesn’t address their current needs, struggles, or spiritual questions, you don’t want to feel irrelevant or out of touch. Boo to that.
  • Missed Opportunities: Failing to consider the specific needs and contexts of the women in your church can result in missed opportunities to address critical issues and provide support.
  • Exclusivity: Ignoring the diverse backgrounds, ages, and life stages of women in the congregation can lead to a theme that feels exclusive or alienating to certain groups. It’s better to choose a theme that everyone can relate to and find meaningful. Mix a little Christian hip-hop with a few hymns. 🙂
  • Cultural Insensitivity: The theme might unintentionally offend or alienate some women in the congregation without considering cultural and social contexts.

    If you’re a primarily White church, don’t just have one Black woman or a token Hispanic woman on the program.

    Do better.
    Sensitivity to these factors ensures that the theme is respectful and relevant. Tokenism blows. Sorry, I couldn’t say it any other way.
  • Lack of Practical Application: A theme that is too abstract or not actionable can leave attendees feeling inspired but unsure of how to apply the message to their daily lives.

    On the other hand, practical application helps translate biblical teachings into real-world actions.

    Tell the women what practical application looks like.
  • Superficial Engagement: Without a thoughtful approach, the Women’s Day service might only scratch the surface of important issues without providing deeper insights or substantial spiritual nourishment. Do your best to add some “meat” to those bones.
  • Low Participation: If the theme doesn’t inspire or engage the congregation, participation in the Women’s Day service and related activities may be low in the future. An engaging theme encourages active involvement and enthusiasm.

In summary of this long blog post, it is essential to thoughtfully consider all implications when choosing a biblical theme for Women’s Day.

By ensuring the theme is relevant, inclusive, actionable, and aligned with the church’s vision, you can create a meaningful and impactful service that resonates deeply with the women in your congregation.

Taking the time to thoughtfully plan the theme and its execution helps to foster a stronger, more engaged, and spiritually nourished community.
