Week of Sunday, August 6
Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
In today’s first reading God invites all who are hungry or thirsty to receive food and drink without cost. Jesus feeds the hungry multitude and reveals the abundance of God. At the eucharistic table we remember all who are hungry or poor in our world today. As we share the bread of life, we are sent forth to give ourselves away as bread for the hungry.

Jesus and Justice Camp
Our annual day camp has been a blast!
Our theme this year was our call to mission, and we spent the week living as a faith community, growing in the spirit, loving as Christ loves us and participating in God’s liberating work of justice and peace through prayer, song, games, art, and real talks. Special thanks to all of our adult and youth leaders who made this year’s camp so much fun! There are many more photos, and a few videos on Facebook.
Welcome Vicar Samantha!
On Tuesday Samantha started officially as our intern for this year. We are so blessed to have her! She will be in Iowa on a service trip with some of our confirmation youth this week so we will officially welcome and install her next Sunday.
