This week is the perfect time to join us in person for worship. We adhere to safe-distancing and masking requirements in our clean and welcoming sanctuary. Enjoy sitting with others from greater Cape May as we worship together. We simplified our service and made it even easier to participate, with our Worship Guide and lyric videos displayed on a large monitor.
Or, if you prefer to worship from home, join the video stream on www.facebook.com/coldspringchurch.

Become a part of Jesus’ cosmic story this week at the Red Brick Church. Enlarge your spiritual world and be better equipped to enjoy God and connect to God’s earthly and cosmic mission which includes you and me! We will start with prayer.
While we call the “Our Father” the Lord’s Prayer, it actually wasn’t. Jesus taught that prayer, but it was to be a model of prayer for the disciples of Jesus. (Idea: When you say the prayer during worship today, think: this is the disciple’s prayer, my prayer, so make it yours!) Jesus told his followers that God sent him to be in the world, and that Jesus was sending us into the world, too. What did Jesus mean when he said to be all in? To help us explore our faith and ramp-up our mission we will consider the expanding group of disciples after Jesus ascended into heaven. Consider words from Colossians 1 that the earthly Jesus has a cosmic role!
“Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers–all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col. 1:15-17).
To prepare for our worship together think about your responses to these questions: What’s the difference between being an astronomer and an astronaut? How do these metaphors help you understand being “all in” as a follower of Jesus?
You’ll want to bring along a few traveling companions to worship with you, too!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
