Demographic Survey: The Congregational Identity Committee is gathering demographic information to get a better handle on who our members are. Please take the survey at https://tinyurl.com/EnglishCongSurvey. It is mobile phone friendly, but please don't let it distract you from worshiping today! Paper copies and a computer version will be available in the lobby after the service. If you participated in the NCD survey in May, this one gathers different data and we ask that you take this one as well. Thanks for your help.

Welcome back, Matt! Guest speaking today is Pastor Matt Roberts, who provided pastoral ministry here at NSCCC from 1993-1996. Although much can change over twenty years’ time, God continues to bless us through this servant and dear friend of ours. Praise the Lord!
