Evan's Palm Sunday craft and song
This is my hometown pastor's granddaughter singing How Great Thou Art. In times like this we need to remember how great our God is! https://www.facebook.com/107211609323846/posts/3330011417043833/?d=null&vh=e
So thankful to be able to live stream or view podcasts of worship and to be with our choir family last Wednesday. Even in this time of social distancing we were able to be in worship. Planning on joining It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood small group Wednesday. So blessed.
We are all His sheep and he will take care of us.💜 #havefaith #washyourhands #helpyourneighbors
With our combined efforts we will accomplish even more next year.
Something came up last minute and I did not make it to church so I decided to watch the pod cast of my daughter's church.... Galilee UMC in Sterling Va......great message and added bonus I got to see my grandbabies at children's time! ❤️

Sunday Services: 9am Worship | 10:15 Grow | 11am Worship At Galilee, we are ordinary people given an extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Him known. More info at galileeumc.org.

At Galilee, we believe that we are ordinary people called to an extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Him known. We got our start in 1959, when the residents of Broad Run Farms dreamed of creating their own church. Worship began in our original building in 1965. Sunday morning services are at 9 and 11. We incorporate a variety of music into our worship and would love for you to join us. We’d especially like to see you at our Grow Hour of small groups between services. We’re more than a church. We’re also a preschool, a community center that houses recovery and support programs, a headquarters for scout groups, and a busy gym full of individual and team sports competitions and practices. Welcome to Galilee…we hope you make this your church home.

Mission: At Galilee, we are ordinary people given an extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Him known.

Our partners at Loudoun Hunger Relief are still serving the community with curbside pickup. Consider a donation, if you are able.

Today we braved the cold and even a little snow squall to serve 66 families (299 people) this morning though our curbside service. They got fresh produce, milk, eggs, meat and more! Thanks to our donors and supporters for helping us help others.

We're at home, but we can still share music. Laura Nickle of the Chapel performs "The Holy City," a favorite Victorian hymn. https://youtu.be/oMJRDPvkl9I

Pastor's Point: Shelter in Grace - Galilee

Grace offers shelter in scary times.

www.galileeumc.org/pastors-point-shelter

galileeumc.org April 9, 2020 – Holy Thursday “Shelter in Grace” By Pastor Jason Duley “God bless you!” That’s what I said after someone I love sneezed the other day. Such an ordinary occurrence now has some serious overtones. She then joked with me: “Oh this is crazy! Covid is happening during all....

[04/10/20]   Pastor Jason here. It's Good Friday. I thought you may appreciate a Prayer specific to the meaning of this holy day.

A PRAYER OF THE CROSS (GOOD FRIDAY)
O Lord Almighty, You have suffered death at the cross for our sins.
O Holy Cross of Jesus, be my true light.
O Holy Cross of Jesus, fill my soul with good thoughts.
O Holy Cross safely guard me against unholy thoughts and wordly dangers that I may worship You; Jesus of Nazareth crucified have mercy on me.
O Holy Cross of Jesus, be my hope.
O Holy Christ, have mercy on me forever and ever. Amen.

Galilee, the Chapel, and Andrew Chapel UMC worship together today! Our Good Friday livestream will be jointly lead by Pastor Matt Sergent and Pastor Geitra Mickelson. Join us at 12:30pm. www.galileeumc.org

Galilee's Holy Thursday service is available to watch anytime here: https://youtu.be/o4M7SVPN4PA

[04/09/20]   Pastor Jason here. It’s holy week, and I thought you may like to see “A Prayer a Day”. Today I offer you ...

A Prayer of Ignatius of Loyola
Teach us, good Lord,
To serve You as You deserve, To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds; To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward, except that of knowing that we do Your will,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

[04/08/20]   Pastor Jason here. As you know, It’s holy week, and I thought you may like to see “A Prayer a Day”. Today I offer you, another of my faves:

A Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Our Holy Thursday service will be online, where we cannot do Communion. Why? galileeumc.org/agape-love-feast
