Our sermon, “5K and Water Break,” comes from John 6: 1-20, where, on a hillside looking over Lake Gennesaret, Jesus revealed himself as the one who could satisfy what people truly hunger for. After the disciples worked hard to cross the lake, Jesus revealed himself to be one they truly needed: the Lord of wind and water, earth and sky. We will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism.

This summer our children are invited to participate in the Flat Jesus project. Children will color and laminate their paper Jesus and take him with on their summer activities as a visible reminder that God’s presence is with us wherever we go! Jesus is not just in the church, but He is everywhere doing God's work. The flat Jesus can also be a reminder to your family that even though you are on vacation you can still read your Bible, read your devotions, and pray. We invite you to take pictures with your paper Jesus and post them to our ECRC Facebook page (with the caption “Jesus is with me in everything I do.” It can be a fun way to keep our church family connected over the summer. As you take pictures it might even start up a conversation with those around you about Jesus and that he is with us always. We will be passing out paper Jesus templates and laminating sheets TODAY. But you can also pick them up at the Information Center in later weeks or Google Flat Jesus and print out your own copy at home. We hope you enjoy your summer adventures with Jesus
