Servers Guild

The dedicated youth at St George the Martyr offer their time to serve in the wonderful ministry of the Servers Guild.

This is a wonderful opportunity for youth and adults to growth in faith and actively experience church life. Youth develop personal relationship and maturity whilst serving the congregation and community.

This service builds confidence and discipline.

We like to welcome the all new members especially those from the Out Stations of Lamotte and Wemmershoek.

We express our appreciation for the training, time and commitment of our coordinator and trainer, Shaun Phillips.

BESINNING VIR DIE SESDE SONDAG NA PINKSTER

Wie sal vrywillig op so ‘n reis saam met Jesus gaan? Ons ontmoet ‘n oorredende Jesus in ons teks. Hy praat met ons, nooi ons, en stuur ons in ‘n nuwe rigting. Jesus is die Seun van God, en Een wat met die krag van sy woorde en werke mens nadertrek. Hy skep sin en betekenis in mense se lewens. Wie sy pad kruis, en wie se ore en hart oopgaan vir Jesus se identiteit en boodskap, weet net: sonder hierdie Jesus sal daar nooit weer sin, vrede en vervulling in my lewe wees nie. Jesus soek egter nie bewonderaars wat ver, op die kantlyn, bly staan nie. Jesus soek mense wat saam met Hom reis, wat dit ook al verg. Jesus is op soek na toegewyde volgelinge.

PENTECOST 5

God of all the nations: when race, class or gender divide us convict us, with your presence and draw us all into the unity of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns in unity with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.

JONG MENSE

Vader van ewige ontferming, U sien u kinders in ‘n onsekere en verwarrende wêreld groot word: wys vir hulle die weg van die lewe , stel hulle in staat om mislukking en frustrasie te oorwin, om hul geloof in U vas te hou en om hul vreugde in u skepping lewend te hou; deur Jesus Christus onse Here.

Amen.

SEASON AFTER PENTECOST

st simons

Introduction to the Season

The beginning of the Season of Sundays after Pentecost is determined by the date of Easter – and the related date of Pentecost, fifty days later. The Feast of the Reign of Christ is its climax and conclusion and is always the 5th Sunday before Christmas Day, i. e. the Sunday before Advent begins. During the long Season of Sundays after Pentecost we encounter Jesus as Healer, Teacher and the One who is to suffer and die as the Saviour of the World.

Liturgical Colour

The liturgical colour for the Season is Green – Green being the colour associated with the mission and work of the Church in the world. However, the liturgical colour for the celebrations of the first Sunday after Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, and the Final Sunday, the Reign of Christ, are white.

About the Sunday Readings for the Sundays after Pentecost

The First Reading and Psalm offer a semi-continuous reading of some of the Old Testament historical books. 1 and 2 Samuel, and 1 and 2 Kings followed by series from the Wisdom literature, Song of Solomon, Proverbs, and Job.                                                                                                                                                                            Trinity Sunday is the first Sunday after Pentecost and the gospel passage from John recounts Jesus speaking to the disciples of the Spirit and the Father.                                                                                                                          The readings from Luke for the next 26 Sundays include miracles of healing [5], teaching disciples [14 including 9 parables] a confrontation with the Jewish authorities, encounters with Martha and Mary as well as Zacchaeus, and a little Apocalypse until we are reminded that our King reigns from the Cross.                                                                 In the midst of all that Jesus did, we also have the story of the sending of the 70 to prepare the way for Jesus by proclaiming the kingdom and curing the sick.                                                                                                                  In all of these one is reminded again and again of Jesus’ concern for the outsiders, the women, the weak, and those whom society cast aside.                                                                                                                                             The series of readings from Jeremiah in the middle of the season could provide material for a series of sermons on the role of the prophet in society.                                                                                                                                 The semi-continuous readings from the letters to the Galatians, Colossians and Timothy provide ample opportunity to focus the preaching on a series of Sundays and to encourage study groups to continue that focus in small groups.[ACSA. 2015. Lectionary Advent 2015- Advent 2016 Year C.]
