Call to Worship (Deuteronomy 6:4-5)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: Hear, O Israel: The LORD is our God, the LORD alone.
People: You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
A Christological Confession (Philippians 2:6-11) (in unison)
6 Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited,
7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form,
8 he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death-- even death on a cross.
9 Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Jacob Azariah Gibby
Susan Gibby is the mother of Jacob Azariah Gibby, born August 22, 2005, weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces. We pray that God may richly bless this new child of the covenant.
September 5 is Labor Day.
“The time of business does not differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are calling for different things, I possess God in the same great tranquility as if I were upon my knees.”
Beginning this Wednesday, August 31, we have Bible Study at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. We are studying Joshua.
The book of Joshua describes the conquest of Canaan. It has some great stories (Rahab and the spies, the crossing of the Jordan River, the capture of Jericho). The book portrays the fulfillment of God’s covenant promise to the Patriarchs that their descendants would possess the land.
We thank everyone who helped with the Summerfest fundraiser yesterday. To do this kind of fundraiser requires a lot of work by a lot of people. We appreciate all of you.
