It is our hope that you will read, study, meditate and pray over these scripture passages this week. There is nothing like the feel of a Bible in your hands but if you like just click the reading above to view the ESV translation.

As We Gather
Jesus had just miraculously fed the crowd. Amazed, they wanted more. Perhaps they imagined that Jesus had come to feed the entire world and solve the problem of famine forever. But Jesus had a surprise for them. While it would be a wonderful thing to feed everyone in the world, something would be missing. People would still be in need of forgiveness of sin, and they would still need hope for life beyond the grave. They would still need a more deeply nourishing food than food for their stomachs. Yes, Jesus fed hungry people with food for their stomachs. But He also gave them much more. God had given the Israelites manna in the wilderness; now God was giving them a new manna to satisfy their deepest hunger. He was giving them His only Son, Jesus, who declared to all, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.” We come to church perhaps expecting to connect with friends, sing songs, and get on with our summer activities; instead we get Jesus, the bread of life, to feed us with forgiveness, with hope, and with renewed energy to feed the world, both body and soul.
It is common for people to feel uncomfortable when visiting a new church. We hope you'll find King of Kings to be a warm, friendly environment where people gather for worship, learning and relationship building. Attend a few worship services (with no pressure to join into membership) and experience God's Word and Spirit of Truth and Love.
1) A traditional Lutheran worship service at 8:00 A.M.
2) A less formal combination of tradition and modern music at 10:45 A.M.
We welcome children at both services!
After visiting a few worship services, consider attending a Bible Class which are held between services at 9:30 A.M. We have many different study opportunities including the Foundations of Faith class geared to those who don't know about Christianity or simply want to refresh their understanding of it.
Go ahead! Check out King of Kings and experience solid biblical teaching and lots of friendly smiles! There is no 'one size fits all' process to getting connected to King of Kings. Nevertheless we hope you will!

The Human Care board is in need of people to help with the pickup and delivery of food from the food pantry. This is one of our most important missions for the community in which we live. Can you find an hour or two a week to help us help our community.
