Easter Sunday morning changed everything when the followers of Jesus proclaimed the truth that “Christ is risen!” What a week! But what was it that brought the change? Remarkably, when we consider the timeline of Jesus’ 3½ years of teaching, miracles, and activities recorded in the Bible, it spans only three weeks! No wonder John writes, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written (John 21:25). But of those three weeks, one is Holy Week. Think about that. Fully one-third of Jesus’ complete story captures events from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday when the stone was rolled away, revealing an empty tomb!
You’ll want to join us for our Grand Easter Celebration! Enjoy music, videos, Scripture readings, the Lord’s Table, and an inspiring message to help you discover that it was more than a philosopher’s stone that rolled away!
We begin worship with a special countdown video and a stirring soundtrack that depicts the stone rolling away in front of an empty tomb. Throughout our Grand Celebration, Jayne McDonough will offer special piano accompaniment to help set the spiritual tone during prayers and silent reflections. After the Pastor’s welcome, let’s be open to God’s Spirit during a meditative video arrangement of Because He Lives. Special music will be offered by Barbara Cain singing, Then Came the Morning. Following the message, we can say/sing along with the video lyrics to the Easter favorite, Christ the Lord Is Risen Today. An Easter mini-movie will challenge us, He’s Still Risen, just before we receive the benediction. Please invite your friends to join you for our Grand Easter Celebration this Sunday!
Thank you for connecting to our worshipping community and its mission to bless greater Cape May with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
Worship Your Way! In-Person, or Online
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 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 by Facebook. We are working with Facebook and the music publishers to honor our music licenses and resolve these disconnect issues. Any interrupted live stream will be re-launched within a minute or two. Please rejoin as soon as we are back! Thank you for your patience. Pre-registration for in-person worship is encouraged but not required to attend worship. If you’d like to worship in person, you may contact the office at 609-884-4065 or email email@example.com.
