Please bring your shoe boxes to church on Sunday, November 10th for the Operation Christmas Child project. We will be sending them to Sendai to be distributed from there. If you don’t have a sticker for the outside of the box indicating gender and age, one will be provided for you on Sunday, November 10th. Remember that you can put a personal note or picture inside the box so the child who receives it can learn a little about who it came from. Please write these messages in just English or both Japanese & English.

Luke 19 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. 5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” 8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
GREATLY LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN WORSHIP
