Welcome to your online Sunday worship from St. George’s, Georgetown. This Sunday we mark Jesus searching for and finding some of his first disciples and inviting them into a new relationship with God by following him.
St. George’s families, this week in our Sunday email we have a Family Page and some colouring and activity pages for parents and children to use to help them engage with the theme of Jesus invitation to follow him.
Please sign up for our weekly emails to get those links to these great resources to use together with your family.
For and opening him this morning I as suggesting for the hymn singers in our community the hymn “O God, Our Help in Ages Past.”
The reading for this Sunday is John 1:43-51:
The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!” Nathanael asked him, “Where did you get to know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.” Nathanael replied, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”1

A traditional hymn you may enjoy singing today is “Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise.”
And the contemporary song that I chose for this week is “Come, Now is the Time to Worship.”
As always, please have a blessed and safe Sunday and do continue to be safe and take care in all your activities.
