Dear Friends,

Sunday morning in the sanctuary services our Lenten series continues as we turn to a classic and beloved story—that of Zacchaeus and his encounter with Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector in a very wealthy area of Jericho.

As a tax collector, he is part of the oppressive, corrupt Roman system of taxation. A tax collector bid for the job. Once a tax collector had the position, he was bound to pay an agreed-upon amount to the Roman Empire. However, he could charge as much as he could get out of the people and keep the difference. He had the authority and military power of the occupying forces of Rome to use as a big stick to threaten anyone who would defy his collection efforts.

8.5 – 8.7 Touch The Water, Taste The Bread: Sacrament School

9:00 am – Noon | Ages 3 – 6 | $15 | Chapel

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Baptism and Communion are the two sacraments celebrated in the United Methodist Church. Baptism is one way we publicly acknowledge God as our creator and recognize God’s love for us. Communion is one way we remember Jesus’ great love for us all.

“Touch the Water, Taste the Bread” will provide opportunities for children to explore and experience these sacraments in ways that are meaningful to them. We will help young children understand this Bible story in terms of the meal, the love of friends and the memories that were made.

For questions about any of the Children’s Ministry programs,
please contact Nikki McInnis (nmcinnis@myfumc.org) at 817/339-5086.
