A Lenten Gift for you

We are providing a special 2022 Lent Devotional Guide for you, your friends, family, and neighbors to use. Download the guide from our website, and share the love and light of Jesus, and the devotional, with others as we begin our journey! A limited number of printed copies are available in the Narthex.

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.

Why do so many Biblical heroes end up in the wilderness? While humanity started in a garden, Adam and Eve ended up in the wild. Jacob, Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist, and the Apostle Paul, to name a few, all had wilderness experiences, too. Oh, and of course, Jesus! Our Lenten Adventure begins with Jesus, where the wild things are. Yikes! But we will discover that God is present with us. Even when our happy plans are encroached upon by unexpected perils. Though our resources run out and unexpected obstacles make the way unbearable, God provides a way where there is no way. Do you ever feel you’re in the wilderness? Sure, we all do, at least from time to time. This Sunday, find wilderness tools for the Lenten Adventure. There is a place for you here! Let’s begin together. Welcome to your Lenten Adventure at Cold Spring Church.

Music Preview

Our worship experience this week features a solo by Beverly Mate titled “Lord Jesus, You Shall Be My Song.” Initially written in French, this text reflects the ministry of a religious community, the Little Sisters of Jesus, who work with people on the margins of society. This hymn is also loved by the Ark (L’Arche) communities who minister to differently-abled adults.

We will enjoy “As The Deer,” written in 1981, one of the most popular songs in the contemporary Christian musical (CCM) genre written by Martin J. Nystrom, a native of Seattle, Washington. After paraphrasing the first verse of Psalm 42, the song reflects on this passage, continuing in the first-person perspective of the psalm, inviting all of us to affirm: You alone are my heart’s desire, and I long to worship you.

As we celebrate around the Lord’s Table, we will sing “Blessed Jesus, Living Bread.” Our worship concludes with the Gospel reading set to the tune, “Lead On O King Eternal,” with the lyrics to the Carolyn Gillette hymn, “O Lord, the Spirit Led You.”

“…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.

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.

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.
