Week of June 19

UVALDE, TEXAS:  In the Welcome Center, there is a display and instructions on how to send our love and support to the teachers of Robb Elementary School.  The idea of this outreach, originated with a teacher of Atonement whose heart was touched with this idea.  You would select one name of a teacher from the list, then take time to write them a heart-felt letter to encourage, support and offer continued prayers for them.  Then you put the name of the teacher on the envelope and place in basket.  Let’s offer our comfort and love to these persons, Atonement Church.  The letters will be mailed to the school as soon as all teachers have someone to write and pray for them.

FOOD GIVE AWAY:  Holy Rosary, Spring Church, Atonement Church and possibly other churches are sponsoring a food give away at Holy Rosary Church on Saturday, June 25.  All who would like to help pack and distribute food are welcome to come.  There will also be food distributions in July and August.  Contact Pastor Amy at 302-218-5896 if you would to learn more and help.

SAVE THE DATE:  ATONEMENT CHURCH ANNUAL PICNIC and celebration of baptisms on Sunday, July 31 with one worship service at 10:00 a.m.  It is a perfect time to invite family and friends to Atonement Church.

THANK YOU:  Atonement Church would like to thank everyone that helped organize, set up, clean up and brought food for our covered dish dinner last Sunday.  We could not have done it without you!

DID YOU KNOW?  As part of Atonement’s new web site, author and member of Atonement Church, Linda Cobourn has created a blog titled, “Walking with Jesus.” What a gift from God Linda is in so many ways!
The blog is easy to find at, click the Ministries tab – Walking with Jesus is below Living What We Believe section. Linda is sharing first-hand experiences of her walk with Jesus as a Christian woman, wife and widow, mother, educator, and so much more! Be sure to share her inspiration from God on your social media! Linda encourages your posts, comments, and interaction. We are all walking with Jesus together…arm in arm, hand in hand with our Wonderful God!  This link will take you right to Linda’s blog:

PAPER RECYCLING:  Paper recycling efforts are once again in place.  Please notice trash cans with recycling logo.  Nothing but paper is to go in these cans.  Nothing with food, drink, or cardboard.  Let’s be good stewards and recycle!  Thank you.

BOOK COLLECTION:  We are still taking donations of books (new and used) for all ages for our book box outside near the bus stop.   You can leave them in the library box or drop them off in the Welcome Center.

CHANGE COLLECTION – OUTREACH:  Over the years, Atonement’s coin (change) collection has really added up! The Branch’s coin collection will benefit our “outreach” missional efforts.  The “Change Jar” is at the front of Fellowship Hall on Communion Table.  Every penny will be a blessing to those in need.  Give as freely as you have received!  Matt. 10:8 TLB

SAMARITAN’S PURSE WELL WATER MINISTRY: The Well Water ministry is donated to Samaritan’s Purse.  We have raised $4130.40 to date.  To donate, please leave change in the water jug found in the Welcome Center.

GREETING CARDS:  Need a greeting card?  Gideon cards are on display in the Welcome Center and in the Sanctuary’s Narthex (back door exit).  For a small donation to the Gideon’s International, a pocket New Testament becomes available for their use.  Check it out!  The cards are beautiful.
