Welcome to 

First Presbyterian Church of the City of Cape May

Hallelujah! Worship at the beach!

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 Sunday, July 12, 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 at 8:30 am.  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. 

Beginning on Sunday, July 12 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.
