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.

PRELUDE                          Tim Davis




OPENING HYMN #63                         “Give to Our God Immortal Praise”
                    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:  God of truth, we know we fall far short of your expectations for us.  We wander away from you in our daily routines; we ignore your commands and in apathy turn our backs on those who are suffering.  Forgive our short-sighted vision and our constant focus on ourselves.  Help us to deepen our connections with you through prayer, praise and scripture, and with others through affirming, supportive relationships.  We pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the source of all grace, Amen.

MEDITATION:                       “Act III: Israel”                      Rev. Earl E. Dunbar

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.
