Welcome to your online Sunday worship from St. George’s, Georgetown for the Fourth Sunday in Lent.
This week we return to the pattern of worship we have been following for the last year. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to collaborate with Gerald and Allison of Infinitely More on their Lenten Musical Calendar last week. I have added a link to their Lenten Musical Calendar for this week at the bottom of this post.
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 with their children which are connected to the full story of Nicodemus’ visit with Jesus (John 3:1-21).
Please sign up for our weekly emails to get those links to these great resources to use together with your family.
A suggested opening hymn for this Sunday is “To the Name of Our Salvation.”
The reading for this Sunday is John 3:14-21:
And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
“Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.”1
Message and Prayers
And here is the link to the video of this Sunday’s Message and Prayers:
A traditional hymn that I picked for the hymn singers out there this week is “To God be the Glory.”
On the contemporary side this week I have selected “Here I Am to Worship.”
I wish you all a blessed and safe Sunday.
Thank you for your continued support of the ministry and mission of St. George’s. I do look forward to us being able to gather together again in-person when we are able.
Be Well and God Bless.
