August 7th Service

Claybanks United Methodist Church

Welcome and Announcements


In this place, among these people,
God is worshipped, God is praised.
We have seen the signs and wonders;
the lost are found here, the dead are raised.
We are living the Gospel story;
lives are changed and mountains moved.
Won’t you come and work among us?
You are welcomed, you are loved.

*Call to Worship
One: From the raising of the sun…
All: God speaks, calling out to the earth.
One: At the beginning of each day…
All: God speaks, calling us to life and service.
One:Even with the setting sun…
All: God speaks, reminding us that we are not alone.
One: As we gather for worship this day God speaks, inviting us
to love freely and to become true treasures on earth.
