C2W for Overwhelmed by Expectation

Here is the Call to Worship I wrote for the first week of our Overwhelmed Sermon Series. This week’s focus is on being overwhelmed by expectation and our scripture is Micah 6:6-8.

The Call
God calls all of us children to rest and worship.
   If God’s calling we better look our best!
And smile!
   And not be late!
And the kids better behave.
   And don’t forget the food bank donations!
And.. and.. and..
   God is calling all of us children to rest and worship.
All God asks is for us to show up, ready to receive and then to go back into the world
   to do justice, show mercy, and humbly walk with God.

 
I also plan on showing this great video from Igniter Media for our Children’s Time:

Overwhelmed Sermon Series

Not sure what to preach on for the rest of the summer? Struggling to plan ahead? Drowning in the work of ministry? Feeling overwhelmed? Well, you’re in the right place.

I’m excited to share with you a new sermon series on feeling overwhelmed. I believe offering peace and rest is one of the great gifts The Church can provide for over-worked culture.

I’m using this series as a lead-up to the start of school and our ‘Back to Church Sunday’. It seems like a good time to offer words of comfort and hope for those of us who feel chronically overwhelmed. I will definitely be preaching to myself for these 5 weeks!

I will be sharing prayers and a Call to Worship for each week, so stay tuned for more!

I adapted this theme from Rev. Amy Probst at Mafair UMC in Kingsport TN.

I hope this will enrich your ministry! Blessings & Peace to you!
