New California Presbyterian Church


MESSAGE FROM PASTOR EARL:  We'll be having worship online streaming live on Facebook.  The instructions are pretty simple:
1) Create a Facebook account if you don't have one already.  You won't be able to access the feed without one.  (You don't have to do anything with the account except open one and, in fact, you could delete it once this season has passed.  Your call, but an account is required).
2) Go to our church page: New California Presbyterian.  If you haven't been over there in awhile this is a good opportunity to poke around.
3) Somewhere on the page (on my laptop it's located center left) you'll see "video".  Probably next to that word will be a red colored word "live".  Click on that and you should be good to go.  We will start at 10:30.

HYMN OF PRAISE #386                         “Lord Jesus, Think on Me”
Find the hymn at the end of the bulletin.

 STATEMENT OF FAITH                Apostle’s Creed
TOGETHER:  I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into Hades; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy church universal, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.  As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen, Amen.

TOGETHER:  Gracious God, forgive us when we selfishly focus on our own lives and churches and fail to bring your love and grace to the world around us.  Forgive us for when we wish to remain safe, when we wish to remain sheltered, for when we don’t have time to open our eyes to the hurting people around us — in our neighborhoods, congregations, cities, our country, and our world.  Please forgive us for only caring about your will when it agrees with ours and only see your kingdom as something for the distant future.  Help us be bearers of your kingdom and willingly and faithfully do your work as your angels in heaven do.  Amen.

WORDS OF ASSURANCE                                                                Hebrews 8:10-12

          I Chronicles 29: 10-13
          Matthew 26: 36-39
          Revelation 11: 15-19

SERMON SERIES:          “Jesus Alone Teaches Us to Pray”          Pt. 2

MESSAGE:                “Now and Not Yet”           Amy Clark, CLP

TOGETHER:  Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever.  Amen.

Please remember that you can continue to give on-line or mail your check.

DOXOLOGY:  Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  Praise Him, all creatures here below.  Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.  Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  Amen.

Check for more details on the Facebook event as we get closer!

VIDEO DEVOTIONALS:  We are looking at the book of Malachi on Facebook!  There are 2-3 devotionals each week.  We'll be taking off the week of August 3 so that is a great time to catch up on previous video devotionals.  Suggestions on our next book to study?  Please e-mail Pastor Earl.

SUMMER READING PROGRAM:  We continue reading the Gospel of John.  We meet Thursday at 7:00 pm.  This will be a “hybrid” class where you can join either in person or Zoom.  Because of the mission trip to Christ’s Table, we will not be having Summer Reading on Thursday, August 13.  Summer reading will resume for August 20 and 27.  We’ll look for you, Thursday nights. 

Rural King will host a Church Week starting today, August 2 thru August 15, 2020.  During Church Week, customers can choose a registered organization (New Cally is registered) to donate to and begin uploading their receipts dated between Aug. 2 – Aug. 15.  All receipts must be uploaded to by Sept. 1, 2020.  Rural King will donate 10% of each valid Rural King receipt’s total after sales tax to the registered organization chosen by the customer.

CHRIST’S TABLE - School Supplies Collection
This year Christ's Table has asked us to pack two backpacks per grade level to take to Zanesville so that they can distribute as needed.  Donations can be left on the table in the Fellowship Hall or brought to drive-in service on or before packing date of Sunday, August 9.  We do have some supplies leftover from last year that we can use.  Here is a list of the most needed items of which we do not have any/many left: pencils, dry erase markers, colored pencils, washable markers, glue sticks, pencil boxes, folders, and wide ruled paper/ or two people are needed to help pack the backpacks at the church on August 9th (with masks) at 6:00 pm.  If you're interested, please contact Brianne Ciminello for more information.  Thank you for your support!

The Session unanimously agreed to extend our Drive-In worship through September.  So, glad to let you know we can enjoy the beautiful fall weather around here while in worship.

CONVERSATION GROUP:  We're starting a group reading a book on the racial divide in our nation.  The book is from InterVarsity called "Beyond Racial Gridlock".  It's a book that suggests a "mutual responsibility" approach.  If you'd like to join us let Pastor Earl know.  We will begin the week of August 10th.
DNA Breakfast - We are restarting with Saturday breakfasts every other month.  Our first one back will be Saturday, August 15 from 8:00 – 11:00 am.  We only need one more to sign up.  Please e-mail Pastor Earl or Brianne Ciminello if you can be that 6th person to help.

DNA SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM is being extended through at least August 19.  If you'd like to help, at this point best to e-mail Tamara Reed since they haven't updated the sign-up sheet online yet.  Her e-mail is:
