Prayer Ministry

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.

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 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.

Grief Support

Grief Support Group

Second Saturday of Every Month at 9am

Grief Support Group is a place where grieving individuals can come together, share their experience in a safe atmosphere, and know that they are not alone. Utilizing the book, "Understanding Your Grief," by Alan Wolfelt, our group will both share personal experiences and learn tools that can be used during the grief journey. Each month we will go over a different Touchstone from the book. You can join in at any time.

The schedule for each month will tentatively be:

Touchstone 5: Understand the Six Needs of Mourning

Special Program

 Touchstone 6: Recognize You Are Not Crazy

Touchstone 7: Nurture Yourself

Touchstone 8: Reach Out for Help

Touchstone 9: Seek Reconciliation, Not Resolution

Touchstone 10: Appreciate Your Transformation

Gathering of Hope and Healing

Grief During the Holidays

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.

Bread of Life

Communion for the Homebound

Consists of lay ministers who have been trained for and have a passion to visit our home-bound members and to take them Communion. We serve over 30 home-bound individuals each month, and in these visits, God’s work is being done and relationships are being developed and nourished.
