Call to Worship for Real Life Faith week 2

The Call
God, we’ve been going in circles all week.
   We can’t get these worries out of our head.
But you call us to worship now, to refocus on You;
   Your love that is never in debit and your grace that knows no limit.
Your mercies are new each morning!
   Remind us we start each day with a clean slate.

C2W for Overwhelmed by Worry

Here is the Call to Worship I wrote for the second week of our Overwhelmed Sermon Series. This week’s focus is on being overwhelmed by worry and our scripture is Matthew 6:25-34.

The Call
The world outside worries us.
   The worlds inside our homes, and our heads, and our hearts spin with anxiety.
Christ call us to the quiet center.
   We come to worship and receive God’s peace.
We come to remember how to trust our Creator.
   Let us worship our God who is caring for us right now.

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!
