Welcome to your online Sunday worship from St. George’s, Georgetown for Sunday, May 2, 2021.
This week our family ministry resources focus on the reading from the The Book of the Acts of the Apostles, Acts 8:26-40. It is the story of Philip meeting and baptizing an Ethiopian eunuch. 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.
For an opening hymn, I will suggest the hymn “Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us”
The reading for this Sunday is John 15:1-8:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.”1
Message and Prayers
And here is the link to this Sunday’s online message and prayers:
For our closing music this Sunday I picked the upbeat hymn “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.”
And for our contemporary song this week I have selected “Build Your Kingdom Here.”
I wish you all God’s blessings this week and I thank you for your continued support of the ministry and mission of St. George’s.
Be Well and God Bless.
