Worship Your Way!
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.
Dear online worshipping friends: We apologize in advance should our live stream be interrupted (again!) by Facebook. We are working with Facebook and the music publisher to honor our music licenses and resolve these issues. Should you experience an interrupted live stream, please rejoin as soon as we are back online! Thank you for your patience.
It has been almost one year since the coronavirus pandemic swept into our lives, something we share with every other person on the planet. With more than 500,000 dead from COVID-19 in the United States, millions sick, variants to contend with, and a halting vaccine rollout, it cannot be overstated: our lives are forever changed. The effects of the pandemic on our lives are felt in every area of our lives; subtly or acutely, it is a burden to bear. This week, we will explore Jesus’ invitation to take up our cross and follow him. What is “our” cross Jesus is speaking of? Is it more than the ordinary and extraordinary difficulties of life? Certainly Jesus’ cross was more than daily burdens and cares. Jesus walks in our shoes, and we are called to walk in his. But where is Jesus walking? What is our cross to bear? We will take a fresh look at the cross Jesus bore, and discover where Jesus is walking to gain spiritual resources for our Lenten journey. Keep on walking.
