Zacchaeus - Messy Church activity.
The story of Zacchaeus is the story of a lonely man.
We are all in a strange situation – not able to go to school or church or Messy Church, not able to meet up with our friends and wider family, not able to do all the things we normally do to fill our days. For all of us this is a weird and lonely time.
Zacchaeus was a lonely man but friendship with Jesus turned his life upside down. As you will read in the story, Zacchaeus was amazed that Jesus knew his name, and knew all about him, and wanted to be his friend. Jesus knows our names, he knows everything about us, he loves us and wants to be our friend. He's always there for us, especially when we are feeling sad or lonely.

Isaiah 43:1 - Now this is what the Lord says, “Don't be afraid. I have called you by name, and you are mine.”

A prayer
Jesus, thank you for being my friend. Thank you for always being there for me. When I am sad you comfort me, When I am lonely you are with me, When I feel afraid you give me courage.
You surround me with your love - This day and all days, Thank you. Amen

At this time it's really important that we keep in touch with our family and friends and neighbours. We just have to do it in different ways. Think about how you can do this. How can you show that you are remembering them; that you care for them?
Things to do:
Keep in touch by Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or e-mail. Make and send a card.
Draw a cartoon or a series of pictures that tell the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus.
Make a picture using your name.
Make a prayer book – bring together pictures of all the people you love and care for, put them in a scrapbook, use the prayer book to remind you to pray for them every day.
Or make a prayer tree – write the names of all your family and friends on the leaves There are activity sheets on the website too. Enjoy!
