In a most mysterious way God feeds each of us with the bread of life. Just how does this work? And what comes next for each of us? We invite you to join us in worship this week and find out. Rev. Russ Smith brings our message today, speaking from the Gospel of John and other texts throughout the Bible where God’s presence comes in a manner of some type of food just in the time of need.
Our worship is 27 minutes long, designed for you to join as works for you, in worship, song, prayer, our message, and communion. We hope that you'll be blessed by worshiping with DisciplesNet, finding ways your own faith in God can grow in theses trying times.
As we do every week, our time together includes a time of communion (breaking of the bread) where you may choose to participate, or simply meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me."
If you would like to share with us at the table that goes beyond all earthly boundaries of time, place, and structure, we ask that you prepare a piece of bread of some type and a drink, such as grape juice, wine, or water. As we pray, our prayers are given to extend to where you are If you are unable to eat or drink, you may want to use a symbolic gesture or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us.

We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from being part. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that are always open, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table.
