Welcome to your online Sunday worship from St. George’s, Georgetown.
This Sunday we reflect on Jesus’ first words spoken and the first disciples called in Mark’s Gospel.
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. There is also a link to a great video to go along with the other resources.
Please sign up for our weekly emails to get those links to these great resources to use together with your family.
“God, Whose Almighty Word” is the hymn I am recommending for an open song this week.
The reading for this Sunday is Mark 1:14-20:
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.1
Prayers and Message
And here is the link to the video of this Sunday’s Prayers and Message:
The more traditional hymn I selected of the closing music is “Will You Come & Follow Me.”
And the contemporary song that I chose for this week is a song of personal transformation “I Will Never Be.”
As always, please have a blessed and safe Sunday and thank you so much for your continued support of the ministry and mission of St. George’s.
Be Well and God Bless.
The Rev’d Canon Rob Park
