Today is Ash Wednesday (February 18th), the beginning of the Lenten Season. What does that mean? Lent is a 40-day span of time leading up to the commemoration of Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is a time during which we take some special time to consider Jesus’ loving sacrifice for us. Often this season is observed with special mid-week services.
This year at Atonement we are gathering – either in Home Groups or at the church – around the theme Consider the Price Christ Paid, as we walk through the Passion History as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew. If you aren’t in a Home Group, gatherings at the church will be Wednesday, 6:30-8:00pm, and Thursday, 10:00-11:30am (Senior Bible Study time) starting the 18th.
We encourage all to participate in these special times. We will be singing some of the Lenten hymns, listening to a presentation on a portion of the Passion History, engaging in some thought-filled discussion, then wrapping up with some closing singing and prayer.
I am trusting that the time will be a blessing for all.

God created us to be with Him.
Our sins separate us from God.
Sins cannot be removed by good deeds.
Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again.
Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life.
Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever.

There you are sitting in worship or Bible study. Your child, or toddler, is restless. Perhaps they’re even a little boisterous. You try to silence them, and nothing. You try to pacify them with food or toys, and nothing. Eventually, you resort to the last thing you wanted to do: you pick them up, and before a watching audience, you make the march out of the auditorium. All the while, you’re a little embarrassed. Maybe you’re a little frustrated too. You might even think to yourself, “There’s no point in coming to church. I get nothing out of it because I have to constantly care for my kid.”
I want you — you mothers and/or fathers — to know just how encouraging you are to so many.
“Being a Christian since I was only eight, I had no idea that the world was so hostile towards those who pledged faith in Christ. I also had no idea that so many people believed in evolution and called themselves ‘atheist’. When I entered high school, I was challenged everyday in every way imaginable.
