Worship with Us
Sunday - 7:45am & 9amView Our Worship Schedule
The Tenth Sunday after Pentecost August 2, 2015Apparently not satisfied by Jesus’ feeding of thousands, some who were there press him for a sign of his power; perhaps it is daily manna they want. As always in John’s gospel when people want a sign, Jesus offers himself. He is the bread come from heaven to give life to the world. He calls us to come to him and believe in him, and through that relationship to know the one who sent him.
