This morning we’ll join Jesus and his followers at the lakeside, where people are getting hungry.
Something different is going on there.
Scarcity gives way to abundance.
Out of next to nothing come leftovers!
And we are invited to be a part of all that God creates and offers.
Until we let God feed us—with forgiveness, with love, with bread—we will have nothing.
If we only let God feed us—and do not offer the same food to others—we become bloated and unable to act.
The generosity of God is without measure. It works in your life and mine in a thousand different ways, seen and unseen. We are given what we need—and so much more.

We will celebrate the sacrament of communion during worship today. In the Congregational UCC tradition, all are welcome at the Table, regardless of church membership or denominational affiliation.
ELEVATOR UPDATE: Construction has started and the elevator will not be available through August. While we will worship in the sanctuary, a worship area will be set up in Rockwood Hall for everyone who is unable to get upstairs.
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
