Conference planned for single adults
LA GRANDE — Aug. 1 is Fast Sunday for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members are encouraged to fast for two meals, make a donation to support the less fortunate and to share personal testimonies with one another in Sacrament Services and in our homes or other meetings.
The “Come, Follow Me” lesson for the week of Aug. 2 is based on Doctrine & Covenants Sections 85-87, which gave encouragement to keep a personal journal and to listen to the “still small voice” by which we receive personal revelation, and provided warnings of impending war.
The North America West Area is organizing a three-day conference for single adults on Aug. 6-8. There will be virtual components and age-specific, in-person gatherings across North America. For more information and to sign up, visit www.LDS-SA.org.
‘Bread of Life’ has nothing to do with your stomach
LA GRANDE — The sermon at Faith Lutheran Church will expound upon the people who were “seeking Jesus” (John 6:24). Jesus addressed their desire for immediate satisfaction: “You are seeking me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of loaves” (John 6:26). Jesus goes on to explain that he is the “Bread of Life,” which has benefits for all time. The Divine Service begins at 10 a.m. in La Grande.
The First Sunday Potluck will follow the service. After the potluck will be the elders’ questioning of a confirmation student.
