WORSHIP AT NEW CASTLE PRESBYTERIAN
Join us for Worship every Sunday at 10:30 am.
Nursery Care provided for Children 0 to 3 years of age.
Younger worshipers through Grade 5 worship with us through the "Scripture Conversation" with Pastor, then go to Sunday School.
We worship in an historic building, and follow a fairly traditional worship order - but we are not formal or inflexible about it!
We greet each other with contagious enthusiasm - and with Christ's Peace - as the service starts. We welcome the chatter and cries of children, and seek to engage them with the scripture of the day through their "Scripture Conversation" with the Pastor, before they head to Sunday School. We respond with laughter and sometimes applause to humor and causes for celebration. And we respond with prayer to what is on our hearts and minds, receiving Prayer Request cards during the offering to be lifted up in the Prayers of the People. We hear God's Word through the Scriptures each week, listening to a sermon to hear how it speaks to us today. We receive an offering, as an opportunity to act upon our commitment to Christ and the mission of this congregation. Music fills the Meeting House throughout the service, through the offering of hymns, choir, and bell anthems. Music can speak to us and for us in ways words alone cannot. And, after the service, we feast on good food and fellowship each Sunday in Fellowship Hall!
The Lord's Supper, or communion, is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month. All are welcome to partake.
Baptism is celebrated upon request and a meeting with the Pastor.
