State by state, county by county, and school board by school board, something is changing. Businesses large and small are all considering change…reducing or eliminating mandated COVID-19 restrictions. (At last!) In the next few weeks, Cold Spring Church will be considering reduced restrictions, too, because case counts and hospitalizations are dropping. We are all ready for change, some desperately ready for a great change! 2022 is the year of Great Expectations here at Cold Spring Church. So, besides feeling more comfortable as we anticipate fewer restrictions, what kind of real change are you looking for right now?

Are you looking for information? Reformation? Restoration? Transformation? All of these “_____ations” sound good. But, Jesus did not come to inform us. Jesus didn’t come to reform or restore us. As amazing as our transformation journey continues to be, Jesus did not even come to transform us. What? Sounds shocking?! But the Good News is that Jesus came to transfigure us! That’s right. Transfiguration is God’s business. Find out how the old things can get out of your way to welcome the new in Christ! You can know the transfiguration of the Spirit when we meet God without a mask, no veil to block God’s love.

Come to worship with your neighbors at Cold Spring Church and see why transformation is just outside-in (think caterpillar spins a cocoon). Don’t settle for transformation, but transfiguration, inside-out (think chrysalis into a butterfly). Christ in you in the transfiguring hope of glory initiating real change and spiritual vitality. Find out how you can go from outside-in to inside-out as you live the real presence of Jesus in the world.

Music Preview

We will enjoy a solo titled “My Heavenly Father Watches Over Me” by the Rev. Larry Moyer who is our worship leader this week. Our first hymn, “The Church’s One Foundation” is one of twelve written by an English curate to affirm the articles of the Apostles’ Creed with biblical allusions such as 1 Corinthians 3:11. Though not created for this text, the tune was joined to it in 1868, and the two have been inseparable ever since. Our sending hymn is “Be Thou My Vision” with stanzas selected from a 20th-century English poetic version of an Irish monastic prayer dating to the 10th century or before. They are set to an Irish folk melody that has proved popular and easily sung despite its lack of repetition and its wide range.

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

Physical distancing and masks are required, even for fully vaccinated worshippers. Thank you for helping us all stay safe.

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.

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.
