God calls everyone into ministry
…but ministry means more than ordination. Called is a resource that helps your congregation explore how to LISTEN for God’s voice, DISCERN what you’ve heard, and RESPOND faithfully at any age.
Graphics are available to support your promotion, worship presentations, or educational curriculum (including Discovery Peak). Graphic pieces include videos, Power Point backgrounds, logos, Discovery Peak clip art, and more.
The worship resources are designed to be used as a package or in pieces. They can be used during four Sunday morning worship services to compliment the Called Sunday School experience or a special weekday service. Even the season is flexible. Pentecost would be a wonderful time to discern the call God has rested upon our lives. Lent would also be a great time to set ourselves apart and discern how our call can strengthen the church we are baptized into. Anytime is a good time to think about who God is shaping us to be.
The education resources for children (K-5th grade) and youth (6th-12th grade), are written in four sessions. The children’s curriculum, Discovery Peak, can be offered as Sunday School curriculum, your after-school program, or as part of your Vacation Bible School experience. The youth curriculum is also written in four sessions. These could also be offered as Sunday School curriculum or UMYF programs. The youth resource also offers a retreat/discussion guide. Choose to use the games, lessons, graphics, or discussion guides as a unit or as pieces of an experience you already have planned.
Called is free through the Young Clergy Initiative and your faithful apportionment giving. Use these materials in any way you wish.
