Gospel Project for Kids

Dear Parents,

Zacchaeus lived in the town of Jericho. He was a chief tax collector. Zacchaeus’s job was to collect money from the Jews for the Roman government. Many people knew Zacchaeus, and many did not like him.

The Bible says that Zacchaeus was rich. Tax collectors often collected more money than necessary and kept the surplus for themselves. His greed and dishonesty led Zacchaeusto being looked down upon as a “sinner.” But Zacchaeus treasured his wealth more than his reputation.

Zacchaeus probably never imagined that his entire life would change in a single day. When Jesus came through Jericho, Zacchaeus wanted to see him. He couldn’t see over the crowds, so he climbed a sycamore tree and watched Jesus from a distance.

Imagine the crowd’s surprise when Jesus approached the tree and called out to Zacchaeus, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down because today I must stay at your house.”

Of all the people in Jericho, Jesus chose to visit Zacchaeus! The other people complained. What was Jesus thinking, going to stay with a sinner like Zacchaeus?

The story reveals that Zacchaeus’s encounter with Jesus changed him. He offered to give half of his possessions to the poor and pay back four times what he had cheated from others. Zacchaeus no longer treasured his wealth. He realized that Jesus offered something so much better. Jesus confirmed this evidence of a changed heart: “Today salvation has come to this house.”

Jesus came to seek and save the lost. He came after us—sinners who do not deserve Him—and He rescues us from sin. Jesus died on the cross for our sin, and He is glad when we repent and trust in Him.

People who encounter Jesus do not walk away unchanged. Pray that your kids encounter the real Jesus, the One who came into the world because we needed Him. Jesus came to seek and save the lost—people like Zacchaeus and people like us. “I didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners” (Mark 2:17). When we repent and trust in Jesus, He changes us.

Have a great week & see you on Sunday!

Young Ladies of the Holy Spirit 2017-18

This is a club for elementary school girls and their mom or Grandma (or other adult woman sponsor), which meets once a month on Sunday afternoon from 2:30-4:30pm in the church library.

During this monthly meeting, half the time is spent in discussion on cultivating one useful habit and the other half is spent learning a life skill. A different habit and skill are presented each month. $3 per meeting (for some meetings) to cover the activity supplies cost. The goal is to create a community of women who are building relationships and investing in our elementary age girls.

Each meeting stands alone, so you can come or miss a meeting and still be welcomed at a future meeting. Unfortunately at this time, childcare for younger siblings will not be provided. Since these are stand-alone meetings, you will need to register for each class you wish to attend.

Upcoming meeting:

July 8- character trait: conversation and listening
Activity: tea party
