Do you have a fear of missing out? Occasionally, or often, we may feel like others are having all the fun, and we can’t bear to be left out. This feeling is so prevalent that the fear of missing out has earned its internet slang, FOMO. With the rise of TikTok and other social media platforms, we can’t resist posting videos and photos of events, parties, and gatherings, leaving others with that dreaded FOMO. People who suffer from the “fear of missing out” may constantly check their devices for social media updates to see what their friends are doing. Suffering from severe FOMO can sometimes lead to impulsively canceling plans or obsessing over what others are doing rather than enjoying their own life.

In this week’s message from Luke 12, Jesus says, “Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself.” Gain resources this Sunday to turn FOMO into fearless kingdom living. 

(Tip: Remember that friends don’t let friends miss out on spiritual energy that can change their lives! This week is a great time to invite others to join you!)

A beautiful hymn medley of Be Thou My Vision with Amazing Grace will be shared by the Rev. Larry Moyer.

Pat Barrett, one of the composers of our video lyric hymn, Build My Life, says “Build My Life is one of those songs that has carried me through so many years of change and uncertainty. Life rarely behaves with our plans and it’s usually in the uncertainty and the not knowing and the trials that reveal what we’ve been standing on and what we put our trust in. Jesus talks about a man who dug a hole and built his house on a rock. When the storm came, the house withstood the storm. This really is a reminder for us that we can build our life on anything, we have the freedom to build our life on whatever we want. And the invitation of Jesus is to build our lives on things that last.”

The closing hymn, How Firm a Foundation was sung by American troops engaged in the Spanish-American war on Christmas morning in 1898. With all of its notoriety, the author is somewhat of a mystery. The hymn is attributed to “K” in the original publication.

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

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

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 screen.
