Sunday School Ministries

The Sunday School curriculum is based on the Narrative Lectionary which is the basis for our worship services. You and your child can expect the following:

  1. to hear the same Bible story in Sunday School as will be preached on in the worship service
  2. to read from the Bible beginning in Genesis through to Revelation during the program year
  3. to create a Bible Timeline in class as the whole story unfolds
  4. to be invited to use their imagination and creativity to bring the story alive
Parents are encouraged to not only worship together with their children, but to read the Bible, pray, and apply the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments to everyday events in your life.  
 

Faith Formation in Confirmation  

In sixth grade the youth of Atonement begin studying their faith more deeply. The Confirmation program is an intensive "whetting of the appetite" for God, faith, and religion. It is the preparing of our youth to “take the baton” of faith and service with enthusiasm.Topics covered include:  

  • A survey of the entire Bible
  • Church history 
  • Ten Commandments, Lord's Prayer, Apostles' Creed, Baptism, Holy Communion 
  • Good/Evil/Suffering
  • Life Issues
 Each program year ends with a Retreat where additional topics are covered.
