Mother’s Day 2015 at the World Mission Society Church of God

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Mother’s Day 2015 was super! On a warm and beautiful day in New Windsor, New York, members of the World Mission Society Church of God hosted “Super Mom Sunday” and honored their mothers for their love and sacrifice to raise them.

The day began with all-hands-on-deck preparation. For this super celebration, members prepared beautiful decorations, catered cuisine, family games, and gracious musical performances. There was so much planned for the guests of honor and their families, there wasn’t a moment to spare before the first guest arrived.

To make sure the event flowed smoothly with all the planned activities, all the members worked in unity. The hosts greeted guests as they entered and directed them to dazzling showcases that encompassed every inch of space.

One showcase hosted games like “Family Friendly Feud,” where guests had a friendly competition to see how much children knew about their moms. They answered questions while their moms held the correct responses.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ images=”11095,11100″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” img_size=”720×480″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”11091″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Members who are professional makeup artists volunteered to give moms a new look. Eyebrows were shaped and lashes were curled.

Other members cooked exquisite meals. The menu included a spring salad with watermelon, cucumber, basil, pomegranate, and feta followed by a choice of grilled barbecue chicken or spicy mesquite smoked brisket paired with asparagus and sweet potatoes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]During dinner, the lights dimmed and guests watched a video that reminded us just how hard our mothers have worked for us all our lives. As children, we can easily take our mother’s love for granted, but when we become mature we can try our best to repay her love by sharing in her sacrifice. Many eyes were filled with tears as the lights came up.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”11105″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full” img_link_large=”yes”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Members’ children also shared what the word “mother” means to them. Though each of their answers were different, they all carried the same sentiment – she’s the one we need to take care of us. By the smiles on their faces, it was clear that all of the guests were reminded of the greatness our mother’s love.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”11104″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_blank” img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ images=”11112,11107,11102″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” img_size=”300×150″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]After enjoying their entrees, everyone enjoyed the fun desserts even more. Everyone enjoyed custom-made sundaes. There were cones, assorted syrups (caramel, strawberry, and chocolate), crushed Oreos, chocolate chip cookie pieces, coco and fruity pebbles, graham crackers, chocolate chips, and more.

Sweet foods were coupled with sweet songs as other Church of God members sang and soothed everyone’s ears.

When asked about her experience, one mommy said, “It’s like a big party in here. When I walked in, I was amazed!”

Her husband added, “Everything’s so exciting in here!” Their two-year-old daughter had a fun time and laughed throughout the event.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_images_carousel images=”11110,11096,11108,11101″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” mode=”horizontal” speed=”4000″ slides_per_view=”1″ autoplay=”yes” wrap=”yes” img_size=”full” hide_pagination_control=”yes”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Beautiful memories were made and some were even caught on film as families posed for the camera. Members set up a special photo booth with a variety of props like stylish hats, funny face glasses, tiaras, and even handmade signs with classic phrases such as “#1 Mom” and “my baby.”

Guests took home photo prints to remember the fun and joy shared with the members of the World Mission Society Church of God.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]All the mommies were winners and took home raffle prizes with cute gifts like body wash and loofahs. They also received hand-made necklaces and bracelets from their children as souvenirs. The guests of honor surely enjoyed a day off from working hard for the family, but instead they played hard with their children creating unforgettable memories full of delight and smiles.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_single_image image=”11097″ border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_images_carousel images=”11111,11109,11103,11100,11099,11098,11094,11093,11092″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” mode=”horizontal” speed=”4000″ slides_per_view=”3″ autoplay=”yes” hide_pagination_control=”yes” wrap=”yes” img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]“This is very lovely,” said a member’s mom. “It’s so nice to see so many families together and the kids can play without their mothers worrying. Families are broken nowadays and this is just so nice here.” She moved to New York from Antigua and helped her daughter every step of the way. She is glad to see her daughter attends the Church of God that promotes the strength, unity and unconditional love of a family.

One of the members said, “We are happy to unite with our family members and share the love of our Heavenly Mother. It is because of our Mother’s love that we are able to come together and host events like this one. Today was truly a beautiful day spent with our moms who work tirelessly to care for us. We love you, mom!”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”grey”][vc_column_text]Who is Heavenly Mother?

    I actually attended Super Mom Sunday and the event really was amazing. While I was there, watching the awesome performances and admiring all the hard work put into the event, I couldn’t help but be thankful that I am a member of the WMSCOG. So many of the members have extraordinary talents and when you put them all together a truly amazing event comes out. Every Mom who came was moved and reminded of how great they truly are! I can’t wait to see what’s next.
