Welcome to your online Sunday worship from St. George’s, Georgetown for Easter Day, Sunday, April 4, 2021.
I hope you check out Infinitely More’s Easter Musical Calendar video for this week, the guest speaker is Bishop Susan. It is at the bottom of this page.
I hope you found the resources that we provided last Sunday a great help as you reflected with your family during Holy Week. This week our family ministry resources focus us on the story of Jesus’ resurrection as told in Mark’s Gospel. This week in our weekly Sunday email there is the link to the Family Page and a link to some fun colouring and activity pages that have something for every age.
Please sign up for our weekly emails to get those links to these great resources to use together with your family.
Our opening him is a one we sing every Easter, “Jesus Christ is Risen Today”
The reading for this Sunday is Mark 16:1-8:
When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.” So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.1
Message and Prayers
And here is the link to the video of this Sunday’s Message and Prayers:
For our closing music I chose the traditional hymn “Alleulia, Alleluia, Give Thanks to the Risen Lord” which is more contemporarily accompanied.
Our second closing song is the uplifting anthem “There is a Redeemer.”
I wish you all a blessed Easter and I thank you for your continued support of the ministry and mission of St. George’s.
Be Well and God Bless.
The Rev’d Canon Rob Park
