In order to comply with State Officials and to ensure the health and well-being of the church, the Elders have decided to require masks or face shields when entering the NPCOC building. Effective Thursday, July 23rd every person entering the NPCOC building must have on a mask or face shield. The mask or face shield must remain on at all times while in the building. If you are in need of a mask please contact one of the Elders or the Church Office so they can provide you with one. The Elders would like to thank the congregation and our visitors for their help and cooperation during this difficult time. They send their love to you all and wish you a safe and blessed day.
Beginning Sunday, April 4th, our AM Bible class will resume for children and adults. Classes will start at 9:15 AM and masks are required for all children and adults.

“Ephraim has mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake unturned” (Hosea 7:8)
It didn’t happen often in my growing up years, but three or four times a year we would wake up to a pancake breakfast. My Aunt Bess would mix the batter from scratch and my two brothers and I would eat them about as fast as she could take them off the griddle. I’m not sure which of us three boys could eat the most but you may listen to the champion several Sundays mornings each month.
I remember a lot about those mornings, but one thing I never had to recall was getting a pancake done on only one side. Could you imagine how disgusting that would be? To look at a golden brown pancake and get your butter and syrup ready only to notice that the other side was still raw and runny would not be fond memory at all.
The prophet Hosea says in the above passage that this is what God saw when He looked at the Northern Kingdom (Ephraim is used to represent the entire kingdom). It is a vivid portrait of a people who were, at best, half done in their service to God; and at their worst, simply repulsive. Their issues with idolatry, immorality, and intermixing with the Cannanite people made them distasteful in God’s sight.
Let’s FULLY prepare ourselves for God! No half-measures here at Norval Park!
