Worship is the most important thing we do to shape our lives each week. Regular Sunday morning worship is at 8:30 and 11:00. During the summer months worship occurs at 8:30 and 10:00. Summer worship is often outdoors.
8:30 Heritage Service is led by the organ and piano; it is a bit more traditional. Music is also provided by the Chancel Choir.
10:00/11:00 Journey Service is led by the Worship Band; this service is more contemporary in flavor.
Children, Youth and Family Ministries
Supporting families in their walk of faith is a key goal of Atonement. Sunday School forms the core of Christian education for children beginning at age three. During the summer, Vacation Bible School brings friends from the community together for fun and Bible lessons.When children are ready for a deeper exploration of the Christian faith (around sixth grade) Confirmation classes are offered. Young people are encouraged to continue attending the Confirmation classes throughout their secondary years developing leadership and mentoring skills for students just starting out in the program.Family oriented classes and activities include weekend camping trips, picnics, game nights, and involvement in the worship life of the church.

The forum is every Sunday at 9:45 a.m.
Tuesday Bible Study This time together focuses on the Bible, but may bring in other resources to help us reflect on the text from various perspectives. Choose between the 9:30 a.m. time and the 7:00 p.m., whichever works for you.
Monthly G.I.F.T. Book Group The Growing in Faith Together Book Group (G.I.F.T.) is reading and discussing books of faith: something new, something classic, something about other faiths, something about the Bible or Christian history.
