Covid 19 Update
The Claybanks United Methodist Church in order to keep our church family safe suspended the in-person meeting of worship and other church activities for December. Based on the continuing surge of Covid 19 infections in our community we will not be able to gather together until the alert level in our community is reduced. Your church leadership will continue to monitor and communicate with you the plans for our church family. Please keep each other in prayer. Continue to use whatever media you feel most comfortable with as you continue to stay in touch and support each other. Please also remember that your financial support is needed to continue meeting the financial obligations of the church that are ongoing.
The UMW would like to thank everyone who ordered from the RADA company during the month of October. From your orders, our ladies group made a profit of $178.00. We will try to make this an annual event. Thank You!!
Use what talents you possess;
The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke
There is not surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved;
It is the finger of God on a man’s shoulder.
Do not worry about what people are thinking about you – for they are not thinking about you. They are wondering what you are thinking about them!
I regret often that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.
Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping them up.
Rev. Jesse Jackson
Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.
Lord, when we are wrong, make us willing to change. And when we are right, make us easy to live with.
Rev. Peter Marshall
Adversity introduces a man to himself.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
When a man has quietly made up his mind that there is nothing he cannot endure, his fears leave him.
Never argue at the dinner table, for the one who is not hungry always gets the best of the argument.
Don’t tell me that worry doesn’t do any good. I know better. The things I worry about don’t happen!
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.
It is a glorious thing to know that your Father God makes no mistakes in directing or permitting that which crosses the path of your life. It is the glory of God to conceal a matter.
It is our glory to trust Him, no matter what.
Joni Eareckson Tada
Be kind. Remember everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
A Gift for the Soul
People are often un-
reasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse
you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people
may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be
enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
