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.

*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.

SERVICE OF HOLY COMMUNION

*Invitation to the Table
Prayer of Confession:
TOGETHER: Holy and gracious God, at times we feel so frail and fragile, getting blown about by the latest crisis, bad news, or our own short tempers and failings. You call us to place our hope in you, but so often we flounder, unable to be consistent in faithfulness. Help us, we pray, to set aside all our jealousies and prejudices, all of our betrayals and lies, all that adds to the world’s hurt. Help us to grow even more into Christ’s likeness, that we will bear his love and truth to the world and live in increasing faithfulness. We pray in his name. Amen.
