While we continue to worship online every week, we are excited to welcome all who are able and comfortable to worship in-person in our historic Red Brick Church on Sundays at 10:30 AM. Your safety, health, and wellness are our our top priority. West Jersey Presbytery approved our session’s re-opening plan and our pastor, staff, and teams have worked hard to prepare for your arrival. Following the guidance from the CDC and health officials, we have implemented safety protocols, and designed an approximately thirty-minute worship experience that will be spiritually energizing and safe for you, your family, and other worshippers.
This second week of Advent, we will hear John the Baptist’s message from Mark, the first Gospel written, that echoes Isaiah’s prophetic call to prepare for the Messiah. How far are you willing to go to ensure that others experience the Good News about Jesus during these pandemic days? How are you making the way plain? You’ll be encouraged by pastor Kevin’s message entitled, “That The World May Know” as we discover practice ways to help others gain access to the Good News by raising valleys, lowering mountains, and smoothing out life’s rough roads.
Our experience today begins with a new countdown video that features beautiful Christmas music as Advent candles are lit. Our opening music is “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!” written by Charles Wesley. He was committed to sharing God’s Good News in Christ through music to those beyond the reach of traditional educational settings, especially in the city and countryside. Inspired by the sounds of London’s church bells on Christmas Day, this hymn was originated as a poem, first published in 1739. Even in these uncertain times, there are abundant reasons to sing and be glad for God’s grace and abundance.
