Children's Sermon for Proper 13 | OT 18
Jesus is the Bread of Eternal Life | John 6:24-35
Object:  A Loaf of Bread and a Bible

The Point:  Bread is important for daily life, but Jesus alone is the bread that gives eternal life.

The Lesson:  Girls and boys, thank you for coming forward to share this time with me.

I brought two items with me today. The first is a loaf of bread.  It is a really great bread.  My husband made it, and he truly makes good bread.  Bread stands for the food that we need in order to live each day.  Food gives our bodies the nutrients that are needed to grow and to build strong bones.  Of course, it is important to eat the right foods so that we will grow to be healthy and strong.... click here for the rest of the children's sermon
