Whiteboard: Change Your Direction

For folks who are planning on attending the Worship Service in the Sanctuary, you have a special treat: The Rev. Al Beasley will be leading the service and delivering a Mission themed sermon that will highlight the ways your stewardship dollars are transformed into life changing programs in our community and out in the wider world. You’ll get to hear about our many outreach partners, the work of the wider church, and you’ll even hear about the upcoming CROP Hunger Walk!

After the Worship Service in the Sanctuary our Outreach Team has a special On Campus Workship Project for you that will be set up in the Fellowship Hall. We’ll be packing up much needed school supplies for the Paiute Neighborhood Center.

For folks looking to be a part of "The Fifth with First" and our Workship Project with Operation Fix-It, we'll be gathering at the Ramada at Chaparral Park at 9AM for a brief prayer service before heading out to help a local neighbor in need.


Luke 19:1-10 Jesus and Zacchaeus

He entered Jericho and was passing through it. A man was there named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax-collector and was rich. He was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycomore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that way. 

When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.’ 

So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him. 

All who saw it began to grumble and said, ‘He has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner.’ 

Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, ‘Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much.’ 

Then Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.’
