Bread for the Life of the World

Jesus says that the bread he gives for the life of the world is his flesh, and whoever eats this bread has eternal life now and will be raised on the last day. In Ephesians Paul tells us what this life Jesus gives us looks like, this life we live as those marked with the seal of the Holy Spirit in baptism. We live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us. The whole purpose of life is giving yourself for the other.

Bike Around Monona


Bike Monona, Saturday, August 11, 10:00 am

Ride with Pastor Stephen & Deb Jenson. We will be following the Lake Loop, with water stops along the way, and the final stop at the Monona Ice Cream and Bait Shop where ice cream or other treats are available for purchase. Following snacks and visiting time, feel free to bike home or head back to the church if you have a vehicle there. Water bottles and helmets recommended. This will be a leisurely ride so all levels are encouraged! The lake loop is a beautiful route, a little shy of 12 miles, and not that difficult. If you have not biked it before, consider joining us for this family event!
