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.
This week, our worship experience will blend two important truths: God’s Love and Christ’s Light. Whether you enjoy or avoid Valentine’s Day, we all have one inescapable need: to feel loved. Love is a core value of Cold Spring Church’s mission. God loves us more than we can possibly imagine. “For God loved the world that he gave his one and only Son…” (John 3:16-17). We seek to, “love one another with mutual affection…” and to “outdo one another in showing honor” (Romans 12:10).
We have another inescapable need: to see the light. Light to shine when times are dark. Light to guide our path. Light to dispel fear and shadows. This week’s message, “Where God’s Light and Love Shine…Through You!,” invites us to the mountaintop with Peter, James, and John where Jesus was transfigured. At the start of Jesus’ ministry Jesus wanted his followers to see his pure light shine from within and all around them, too. “Christ in you, the hope of glory!” (Colossians 1:17). Get in touch with your inner-Christ light.
We will always need Christ’s love and light, especially now during these uncertain times. Who around you needs to the love and light of Christ this week? How will they see God’s love and Christ’s light in you? In what ways does the transfiguration story prepare you for a journey through Lent?
