While we continue to worship online every week, we are excited to welcome all who are able and comfortable to worship in-person in our historic Red Brick Church on Sundays at 10:30 AM. Last week about 25 people safely worshipped together. Your safety, health, and wellness are our our top priority. West Jersey Presbytery approved our session’s re-opening plan and our pastor, staff, and teams have worked hard to prepare for your arrival. Following the guidance from the CDC and health officials, we have implemented safety protocols, and designed an approximately thirty-minute worship experience that will be spiritually energizing and safe for you, your family, and other worshippers.
This will be an unprecedented Thanksgiving holiday. Your friends at Cold Spring Church are prepared to walk with you even as COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations across the country and county climb. In a year where our use of the word “unprecedented” is in fact, unprecedented, we realize God’s amazing love for us is not unprecedented! From the beginning we have experienced God’s love in Christ that is not bound by our constraints. This week, we can learn How To Have an Unprecedented Thanksgiving in Pastor Kevin’s message from Matthew 25:31-46 about Jesus story of the sheep and the goats. You will want to experience worship with us in-person or online this week on Christ the King Sunday.
Next week: Advent begins!
This week we are providing a longer worship countdown video to enjoy. We hope this provides more time to prepare for our Facebook Live or phone-in experience together. Remember to invite others to join you online by sharing the page with your friends. And during worship, use the Emoji buttons to express your feelings and engagement!
We begin worship with the Apostles Creed set to music. Words are powerful. They have the potential to bring us together and the potential to tear us apart. Since the beginning of time, words have carried an incredible amount of weight. Writers Cass Langton and Ben Fielding, “thought a song that really was reminiscent of the Apostles’ Creed, that covered its main points, would be a beautiful way of calling modern churches to reflect on the foundation of the faith that unifies us.” We hope you enjoy “This I Believe.”
