New California Presbyterian Church


MESSAGE FROM PASTOR EARL:  We'll be having worship online streaming live on Facebook.  Please be patient with the feed but I think this will be a good alternative for now.  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.  I'm guessing the feed will go live about 10:15 or so to give people time to get ready.

PRELUDE       (Please enter into a prayerful mode)

HYMN OF PRAISE #121             “Christ Is the World’s Light”


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, we confess that we can be frightened today.  We have experienced the loss of loved ones and, recently, other losses that are both familiar and unfamiliar.  We confess that we often think, “if only you’d be here, Jesus.”  Give us courage to face our fear and to look for your true life.  Help us move away from the prison of death to the light of eternal life and hope.  In Jesus’ Name, we pray.  AMEN.
