The Open Door

The First Presbyterian Church of the City of Cape May

The Visitors' Church for over a Century

Obedient in faith we intend to work together to touch the lives of others and be disciples of the Lord.

We are still not having any church gatherings, including in-person meetings or worship services.  But we are very grateful for the internet!

The Twelve Steps Groups ARE NOT meeting in our building at this time, but to find meetings on Zoom and otherwise online, click here:

Hallelujah! Worship at the beach begins this Sunday!
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.  Before we head into the sanctuary, though, we will enjoy the natural sanctuary of the beach.  Beginning this Sunday, and continuing through July 5, we invite  those who are able to park at the church lot and stroll directly down Decatur Street to the beach at 9 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. 

If you are not in town or if health concerns are keeping you at home, please continue to join us online!  We will be live-streaming 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 on our website. 

 Looking forward to seeing each of you soon, one way or another!  ~ NICOLE


Taking Our Faith to a Higher Level

Work on our new church roof goes on!  Your contribution to this effort will be matched by funds from the endow-ment of First Presbyterian Church of Wildwood.  We have work to do to reach our goal of $20,000 and 30 different donors in June, so please give now. Let's get to that next level!.

If you love this photo and you enjoy being in the garden, we need you!
