First Presbyterian Church of the City of Cape May
Sunday Service Scheduled for Sunday, September 27!
Friends, it seems that the time we have been waiting has arrived, and we are able to be together for worship once again. Proceeding with equal parts eagerness and caution, the worship committee has made a plan to move toward in-person worship gatherings for the immediate future.
On Sundays at 8:30am, we invite those who are able to park at the church lot and stroll directly down Decatur Street to the beach for a brief worship service. Our gratitude to the City of Cape May for granting us permission for these joyful gatherings. The service there will be socially distanced (please wear a mask!) and short, but very, very sweet. Bring your own beach chair if you like. There will be music, prayer, scripture, and a brief word.
We will also host the sermon in our beautiful sanctuary at 11 am (jazz). Services will be no more than 30 minutes in length and we are taking all precautions to keep all participants safe. We ask that you please wear a mask while you are in or even just outside the building. We’ll be disinfecting and providing wipes and hand sanitizer, as well as socially distanced seating.
If you are not in town or if health concerns are keeping you at home, please continue to join us online! We will be livestreaming on Facebook (you do not have to have an account to watch!) and Youtube, or you can watch video of the service any time afterwards here on our website.
"Obedient in Faith, we intend to work together to touch the lives of others and be disciples of the Lord."
Members of the First Presbyterian Church of Cape May (PC USA) have been welcoming friends, visitors,
new residents and people of all faiths, backgrounds and traditions for over 100 years.
AA or Al-Anon meetings
AA and Alanon groups are once again meeting in the church, with appropriate disinfecting and social distancing measures.
Please wear a mask. Find times and updates here: https://www.capeatlanticaa.org/
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

The Good Earth,
by Pearl S. Buck
This story tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer and his family in old agrarian China. The humble Wang Lung glories in the soil he works, nurturing the land as it nurtures his family and him.
Nearby the nobles of the House of Hwang consider themselves above the land and its workers, but they will soon meet their own downfall.
Our selection for November 8 at 5 PM is This Tender Land, a novel by William Kent Krueger. In the summer of 1932, on the banks of Minnesota's Gilead River, Native American children, who were forcibly separated from their parents, and Odie O'Banion, a lively, white, orphaned boy and his brother are sent to be educated. According to GoodReads, this entralling, bighearted epic shows how the magnificent American landscape connects us all, haunts our dreams, and makes us whole.
