This third week of Advent is all about “doing” what we believe in joy. We will hear Isaiah’s prophetic message for all people to rejoice. And with the crowds surrounding the prophet John by the Jordan, we can respond each in our own way to that proclamation of joy. This week, find hope and encouragement to live your very best life, the abundant Life that Jesus promised you!

Get ready as we proclaim God’s story that a Jew from Nazareth who lived briefly, died violently, rose unexpectedly, and was God in the flesh, calls us to follow, transformed in mind, body, and spirit!

Music Preview

Our video hymn today is The First Nowell. “Nowell” is the English form of the French “noel,” a shout of joy formerly used at Christmas (as in Chaucer’s “Franklin’s Tale”), a clue that the word is older than its first printing. It may have Latin and French roots related to “born,” ” (natus / né) as well to “news” (nova / nouvelle).

We close with Angels From the Realms of Glory played on the organ. This familiar carol was first published as a poem in the Christmas Eve 1816 issue of a newspaper the author edited in Sheffield, England. The tune name celebrates the location of a prominent Presbyterian Church in London, sometimes called the “Presbyterian cathedral.”

Come and worship!

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

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