Quick Review: Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged or confused you?

Digging Deeper:
1) Did you read the series by Tim LaHaye or Joel Rosenberg about the Tribulation? Did they change the way you think about the end times? Discuss with your small group.

2) Have you contemplated your willingness to die because of the Word of God or for your witness of Him? Can you share a time when you suffered for the sake of Christ? Matthew 5:11,12.

3) In Matthew 5:43,44 Christ instructs us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. Do you ever have difficulty with this? Have you ever cried out for justice and wondered why God delays? Luke 18:7,8. Have you ever practiced Romans 12:20 on your enemy? What happened?

NEWCOMERS RECEPTION

We welcome Norm Lewis as our speaker this weekend. Norm is an Elder with the position of Church Treasurer, Director of our Missions team and a member of our preaching team. We would love to meet you at our Welcome Center in the lobby and share a gift and available opportunities. Our Pastoral team would also love to meet you and will linger in the front after the services to this end. You may let us know you were here by using a Communication Card found in our worship folder. We receive these in containers placed on tables in the Celebration Center.

SANCTITY OF LIFE / SHINE ON! COMMUNITY TALK

“Either life is always, and in all circumstance, sacred, or intrinsically of no account; it is inconceivable that it should be in some cases the one, and in some [cases] the other.”– Ronald Reagan quoting Malcolm Muggeridge in a letter to Human Life Review. One of the ways we seek to advance the value of the sanctity of life here at Aspen Ridge Church is by hosting Life’s Options Pregnancy Center for our next Shine On! Community Talk in Fellowship Hall, Saturday, February 26, from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM with free lunch for all attendees.

NEWCOMER’S EAT & GREET

Are you interested in getting to know more about Aspen Ridge Church? Pastor Jeff and Mary will host this informal gathering at their home on Sunday, February 27 at 2:00 PM. The address is 7183 Pinewood Drive in Evergreen. We would love to connect with you and hear more about your interests and desires. If you can attend, please contact our church office at 303.674.4312.

BAPTISM

After celebrating baptisms a few weeks ago, we have received interest in providing an additional baptism service. We will do so in the Spring on Easter weekend, April 16/17. We will provide three baptism orientation meetings, with the expectation that someone getting baptized will attend at least one. These meetings will be March 16 at 6:30 PM; March 24 at 5:00 PM and April 2 at 1:00 PM. If you are interested in baptism, please indicate on our communication card or call the church office and we will provide the needed support and orientation.

SAVE THE DATE FOR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)!

VBS will be held June 13-17! We moved it back one week because of a church scheduling conflict. Keep an eye out for volunteer sign-up opportunities in April. Registration for kids will open in May. 

PARENT DEDICATION

Aspen Ridge Church will provide a “Parent Dedication” weekend on March 12/13. A “Parent Dedication” is a time and occasion for parents to make a public and church-wide commitment to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. If you are interested in making this kind of public commitment, please contact the pastoral staff.

TOGETHER TO TRANSFORM 2022

Converge Rocky Mountain’s annual conference is being held on March 11-12 at the Orchard Church in Henderson, CO. This year’s conference is entitled “Welcome Home – Your New Home” and is a new missiology for a post-COVID world. Along with breakouts on community outreach, online ministry and effective assimilation systems. There are brochures available in the Media Stands and online registration is now open at https://togethertotransform.org and includes a schedule/detail.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT DINNER

Join us on Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 PM for a delicious meal of baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and dessert served in our Celebration Center. The cost is $3.00/person or $10/family, and we would love to meet you there.

MOBILE FOOD SHARE

Aspen Ridge Church will make our parking lot available for a Mobile Food Share program on Tuesdays from 3:30-4:00 PM. Mobile Food Share is a place where people can come and help reduce food waste by taking rescued food from our local grocery stores. It is a place where people can support their local farmers/ ranchers by participating. And the best part? It’s all FREE! Mountain Resource Center will bring a refrigerated van and distribute free food from our location. When neighbors “donate instead of dump,” and “buy local” our environment is protected, and families are fed instead of landfills. Everyone is eligible, no special requirements or documentation are needed.
