Prayer Ministry

God’s mercy and consolation are present daily through the listening and compassion of God’s people. A prayer, a caring touch, a safe place to voice disappointments and distress – these are signs of God’s grace in our community.

We are honored to bring your prayer requests before God, and offer a variety of ways to connect with others in prayer.

Prayer Vine/Prayer Sheet

Atonement’s Prayer Vine sends emails out as requested for those who request prayers for themselves, family members, or friends. The Prayer Sheet is included weekly in the worship bulletin, and lists those members, family, and friends that are in need of prayer. 

Personal Prayers during Worship

Trained prayer teams are available on Sunday mornings during communion. Those worshiping are welcome to request confidential prayer by going to the team in the back of the sanctuary. 

Offering the Prayers during Worship

As part of the worship liturgy, these prayers are read from the back by the font, as an offering from the congregation.

Prayer Request Cards

(in Sanctuary attendance registers): You may share your prayer requests on the blue cards in the blue attendance registers; they will be received in the church office and included in our prayers.

Visitation Ministries

Stephen Ministry

The core purpose of Stephen Ministries is reflected in the words of St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians: “To equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13).
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who receive special training to provide one-on-one Christian caregiving to Atonement members and friends who are experiencing life’s problems. A Stephen Minister serves as a non-judgmental Christian friend who meets periodically with the care receiver in a quiet setting to listen, ask questions, and provide support. All conversations are held in strict confidence.
