What will the new year bring? This week, gather around the Lord’s Table for spiritual nourishment. We will consider how the Spirit led Joseph and his new family to settle in Nazareth, a small town whose name means the place of the branch. The branch of the almond tree is a central metaphor in Scripture for God’s provision for our new year’s journey. “A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots, a Branch will bear fruit” (Isaiah 11:1), and “The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Bran a King who will reign wisely….” Let’s consider the almond tree and the fruit it brings “as we do what is just and right in the land” (Jeremiah 23:5). Almond blessings ahead!

We begin with our 12 Days of Christmas countdown video that sets the theme for our worship experience. Our hymn, Come, Great God of All the Ages asks us to begin the New Year with God’s guidance, direction, strong faith, and action in the community as we build the church today. We conclude our service with our communion favorite, “The Blessing.”

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.
