Twenty-Third Sunday after Pentecost
Worship at 8:45am and 10:00am
Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” –Luke 19:1-7
Guest Preacher, Dr. Kathleen King, will be preaching at both services, “Jesus Calls Each of Us”
The rich ruler, the blind beggar, and Zacchaeus all wanted something from Jesus. Jesus offered each of them what they wanted and more, and he called each of them to a different ministry. What does he call each of us to today?
Scripture: Luke 19:1-10
