We are discovering God’s joy at the edges of Christmas!

Message Preview

This third week of Advent is about experiencing our Christmas DNA in the margins. On the edges of life. While we often gravitate towards the center, We will find God’s joyful intervention in our world at the curbs and outer boundaries, where we least expect it. Just ask John the Baptizer. He was wondering if Jesus was the One because, from his point of view, something about Jesus wasn’t adding up. We will see how Jesus sets him straight with the crowds surrounding the prophet John by the Jordan. We will also hear Isaiah’s shocking prophetic message for everyone to rejoice as God leads us to discover hope and healing. This week, find hope and encouragement to live your very best life not only in the center but also in the margins.

We begin with our Advent countdown that sets the theme for our worship experience. Jayne McDonough will accompany Beverly Mate singing “The Snow Lay on the Ground”.This is one instance where we can see how one Christmas Carol was built upon another as the refrain quotes the original Latin refrain of O Come Let Us Adore Him. Our first hymn today is “The First Nowell.” Nowell is the English form of the French Noel, a shout of joy formerly used at Christmas.

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

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 welcome at Cold Spring Church. Yes, everyone!

Enjoy sitting with others from greater Cape May as we worship together. We simplified our service and made participation even easier with our Worship Guide and lyric videos displayed on a large screen.
