Satisfy the Hungry

In this week's gospel, Jesus feeds thousands of people with five loaves and two fish. What we have, what we bring to Jesus’ table, seems like it is not nearly enough to meet all the needs we see around us. But it is not the adequacy of our supplies or our skills that finally makes the difference: it is the power of Jesus working in the littlest and least to transform this world into the world God desires, a world where all the hungry are satisfied.

Come Celebrate!

Tuesday, July 31, 2018; 6:30 pm


July 31st at 6:30pm, we will have the opportunity to ritualize our journey of the past three years, as Pastor Stephen studied for his Doctorate of Ministry. We gave him our blessing to pursue this goal and he involved us in learning Black History; taught us about racism; and challenged us in ways we never could have imagined. Now, as a continuing part of his doctoral work, we have the opportunity to gather our learnings together in a short ritual. Please come this Tuesday evening for a 20 minute gathering on the front lawn of the church. We’ll have some chairs for those who can’t stand for a long time,and goodies for those who wish to stay a bit afterward.

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!
