Where do you see faith at work? In your life? Do you see it at work in your neighborhood or in your family? Where in the world do you see faith at work? This week, we see Jesus do amazing work in the most unexpected places, and in the most unexpected ways. In our life’s map of experiences we can more clearly see how our faith and work can bring unexpected blessings.

This Labor Day weekend we will celebrate God’s work in our lives that we see most clearly as we put our faith in Jesus Christ into practice.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

We will recognize and remember 9/11 on its 20th anniversary, Patriot Day, and reaffirm God’s presence with us in all times and places.

Gathering At the Lord’s Table 

Our in-person worshippers will be provided pre-packaged communion cups, which on-line worshippers may request by contacting the office. Or, you choose the bread. For the cup, you may use grape juice or wine, or water, remembering that Christ is the Living Water for all.

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Worship Your Way! In-Person, or Online. Masks are optional for vaccinated worshippers.

We are excited to welcome to worship all who are able and comfortable in-person in our historic Red Brick Church on Sundays at 10:30 AM. Your safety, health, and wellness are our top priority. Following the guidance from the CDC and health officials, we have implemented safety protocols and designed an approximately forty-minute worship experience that will be spiritually energizing and safe for you, your family, and other worshippers.

Rediscover God’s love for you and live your very best life in Christ!

Have you ever felt like giving up on God? Most of us have felt that way from time to time. But, if not giving up on God or our idea of God, maybe we’ve given up on religion, or have been mistreated by religious people, or the church. We may feel that too many people have lied or died or failed in the name of Christ for anyone to take Jesus’ call seriously. Yes, it’s tough to hear the simple invitation of Jesus, Follow me!, with all the noise.

When we consider those who found Jesus’ words extremely difficult to believe, we will see that we are not alone! To them (and maybe to us, too?), Jesus’ claims were just too outrageous to be taken seriously. Many people have mistaken or miscommunicated Jesus’ message entirely. Sometimes we just give up too soon. This week, we will hear a fresh expression of the Gospel from John 6:63-69 in a message titled, “Leaving So Soon?,” that will echo Joshua’s challenge to the ancient Israelites to choose wisely, even when choosing is hard. Discover, or re-discover, God’s love for YOU this Sunday. Clearly hear Jesus say to you, “Yes, it’s tough. I understand. I love you. I will never give up on you!” Let’s not leave too soon…and instead renew our commitment to really hear Jesus’ words of life and spirit!

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Feeling stuck? Get the resources you need to get up and live your very best life in Christ!

Do you feel stuck? We all feel that way from time to time, and it’s not a good feeling! Just ask Elijah! This week we will meet Elijah in our Scripture reading from 1 Kings. He wanted clearer instructions from God and was feeling very stuck. So stuck, he crawled into a cave to sleep his uncertainty off. This week we will also discover how the crowds with Jesus were stuck trying to understand how Jesus could be the Bread of Heaven when the only heavenly bread they knew about was in a Bible story. While God has a purpose for each of us, those plans are rarely straightforward.

When we feel stuck spiritually, we need to take the steps that are the clearest to us and get moving. God understands our need for clarity and gives us the basics to take the following steps of faith as we follow the Spirit. We all need to hear God say to us right where we are, “We can do this!” We need our community to hear God speak to them, too, “We can do this!”. If you feel like you’re stuck on the bench of faith, get ready to relocate! Spiritual nourishment ahead at Cold Spring Church!

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).
