O God, with all your faithful followers of every age, we praise you, the rock of our life. Be our strong foundation and form us into the body of your Son, that we may gladly minister to all the world, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
1I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
3For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. 4For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, 5so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. 6We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; 7ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; 8the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.
P: The Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise to you, O Christ.
P: Lord, in your mercy,
C: hear our prayer.

OSLC will be placing a group order for the 2021 edition of Daily Texts on September 20. With a group purchase, the cost for an individual copy is $9.50.

The church office will call you when they arrive.
This is your last chance to update your contact info for the 2020 print edition of the church directory. If you have any new directory information (e.g., new or additional phone numbers, different postal address, new or added email address), please contact the church office by August 24 so we can include that in the next print edition.
Also, if you want a printed copy of the church directory or a PDF copy emailed to you, please call or email the church office. We will not be making as many printed copies as in the past, so let us know if we should print one for you.
