2021-09-26 Hybrid Worship

We are ready for you inside our historic, beautiful Red Brick Church! Or, join us on YouTube Live!

Due to the spike in cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19 in Cape May County, masks are again required, even for fully vaccinated worshippers.

Whatever your religious affiliation, or none at all, we will all hear Jesus say, “Come to me all who are overburdened, and find rest for your soul!” Everyone is welcomed at Cold Spring Church.

You have found a place to encounter God and people who care about you – just as you are, right where you are, anytime. Once you and your family are ready for worship at home, share the picture with us by posting to Facebook #ColdSpringChurch or Instagram #coldspringchurchnj. If you’re in the sanctuary, feel free to share photos or text friends about what you are learning! Subscribe to our weekly Connections email newsletter. Sign up here!

Energize your life and discover the amazing love of Jesus! This week is the perfect time to join us in person for worship. Enjoy live music and solo, lyric videos, and a message of hope from God’s word.

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.

Do you know what time it is? Sure, your watch will tell you the time, but time itself? What is it? Time is simply a measure of distance. Time is life itself that passes along. It is not a tangible thing, time measures tangible things. \Time does not stand still. It is not a commodity to be held, set aside, or saved. Time cannot be stored. Nor can it be ignored. It cannot be spent, or lost. Time cannot be our enemy, or be “on our side.” There are no more hours in your day than in any other’s day. While we often feel pressure when “running out of time,” or impatient “waiting our time,” time is simply the unit we use to track and measure  experience, movement, and growth, that is, life Time is a way to measure our life. How does your life measure up?

This week, we celebrate God’s creative power and involvement in our lives through Jesus Christ. We begin with a hero story about Queen Esther who saved her people from the scoundrel, Haman. “For such a time as this,” Esther said, I have been put right where I am!” She decided now is the time to take a step of faith and courage.

Leaving the Queen’s story, our Scripture readings teleport us 500 years  when we will hear Jesus tell his followers not to interfere when other’s do God’s work even if they are not part of their group. In fact, we should welcome them. Everyone can live and share the Good News. With Queen Esther and the disciples of Jesus, seriously, now is the time for living! Yes, now!

“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).

“…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.
