Welcome & Announcements*
Prayer of Approach & Preparatory Silence*
Almighty God, as summer begins to wane, and the days are warm, yet
grow shorter, our minds are easily distracted by the sunshine and
warm breezes, and they draw us away from you – even on a Sunday.
Which is why we ask for your blessing, and that you help us recall the
privileges we have as your children. Send your Holy Spirit to remind
us of your mercy and grace, and to clear our minds of the ordinary
things that carelessly turn our thoughts away from you, and away for
your Son, Jesus Christ. Use our time of silence to help us find the
peace, comfort, and encouragement that is an inherent part of our
relationship with you. Take away any unwarranted pride, and reveal
what’s in our hearts, so that we can set it aside and center all we do
on worshipping and glorifying your name. Allow us to hear your still
small voice, and then obediently respond. May all we sing, say, and
do this day bring you great joy and be pleasing in your sight. We ask
all this in Jesus mighty and precious name, amen.

Profession of Faith*
Why is he called “Christ,” meaning anointed?
Because he has been ordained by God the Father and has been
anointed with the Holy Spirit to be our chief prophet and teacher
who perfectly reveals to us the secret counsel and will of God for our
deliverance; our only high priest who has set us free by the one
sacrifice of his body, and who continually pleads our cause with the
Father; and our eternal king who governs us by his Word and Spirit,
and who guards us and keeps us in the freedom he has won for us.
But why are you called a Christian?
Because by faith I am a member of Christ, and so I share in his
anointing. I am anointed to confess his name, to present myself to
him as a living sacrifice of thanks, to strive with a good conscience
against sin and the devil in this life, and afterward to reign with Christ
over all creation for all eternity.
