Explain the offering plan to the congregation: All adults will give the amount of the month and day of their mother’s birthday. For example, if your mom’s birthday is June 16, you will give $22 (6th month and 16th day=$22). If her birthday is April 1, you will give $5. If it is August 31, you give $39. Have envelopes ready to hand out on Mother’s Day. Imprinted on the envelopes will be a place for the mother’s name, her birthday, and the person giving the offering. The following Sunday, post on the bulletin board the names of the mothers in which an offering was given in her honor. This is an enjoyable, easy fundraiser for Mothers Memorial!
