Pew Conversation Question for July 25th & 26th

The readings for July 25th & 26th, the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time, are as follows:

2 Kings 4:42-44
Eph 4:1-6
Jn 6:1-15

Please read and reflect on these scriptures, and then prayerfully consider the following questions, which will be our Pew Conversation or Meditation this coming weekend.

Has there been a time in your life when you felt that you only had a little bit, but it turned out to be more than enough, through the grace of God?  

Reflecting on the abundance of loaves and fishes, how do you think the world would be different if each of us responded to the Gospel's invitation to share whatever we have? What would this look like for you?

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Vacation Bible School will be held August 17-21 for ages 5-11. Please plan on bringing your children or grandchildren to this fun, faith-filled camp. More information to follow.
