We welcome the Rev. Graham Mitchel in worship this morning!
A congregational meeting for the purpose of electing the Elder Nominating Committee will be held after worship on Nov. 1.
The Christian Education and Fellowship Committees would like to announce that there will be a Trunk or Treat Halloween Party on October 30, 6:00 pm in the NDPC parking lot. There will be a bonfire for SMORES, Tales-to-tell around the fire, and the trunks will be judged for decor, goodies, and originality. Please wear masks and bring chairs if you want to socialize around the fire. If you have questions, please contact Linda Ely or Teresa Leonetti.
Call to Worship:
Leader: This is the day that the Lord has made;
People: Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Prayer of Confession:
Eternal God, in whom we live and move and have our being, whose face is hidden from us by our sins, and whose mercy we forget in the blindness of our hearts: Cleanse us from all our offenses, and deliver us from proud thoughts and vain desires, that with reverent and humble hearts we may draw near to you, confessing our faults, confiding in your grace, and finding in you our refuge and strength; through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; 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 quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
