Sunday School

We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:45 am, September – May



1st-6th Graders

Parent/Tot Class is an introductory class for toddlers and their parents.

Through this class we hope to help you nurture their faith and help them know that they are part of God's family.
This group begins their Sunday School experience by gathering for large group story-time and songs. Sometimes they watch the skits, sometimes they are part of the story.

After they finish singing, they move to small groups where we reinforce the story and the message through activities.
1st-6th graders meet for a very interactive large-group opening where they hear and see God's stories come to life through storytelling and skits, then break into small groups for a variety of activities.

Here's where relationships blossom!

Sunday Worship

Our Nursery

Acolytes & Crucifiers

Our nursery, located off the Lobby (Narthex), is available for children 6 weeks-age 5. The nursery is available at all worship services, and is staffed by paid caregivers who are CPR, choking and first-aid certified.

Parents may take children to the nursery before worship or any time during the service. The Crib Room also provides a quiet place for napping, feeding, nursing, and changing diapers.
Worship is important for all God’s children, and all should be involved in some way. At Atonement, we want to be intentional about offering a place specifically for 4th-6th graders to lead our worship as acolytes, typically from September through May.

Acolytes are involved throughout the service – lighting altar candles, receiving the offering, and assisting with communion. 6th graders may also serve as crucifers.
Training is offered annually; individual training can also be provided by contacting Boo.

Children & Family Milestones


1st Communion

3rd Grade Bibles

Baptism is an amazing, wonderful gift from God. Through baptism God’s children (of all ages!) are given the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), and sins are washed away (Acts 22:16).

It’s an honor for us to be a part of and witness this re-birth and welcome them into God’s family and ours.
Each spring, we have a faith milestone class where 2nd-grade children and their significant adults (parents, godparents, grandparents, etc.) come together to learn about the sacrament of Holy Communion. Classes are offered during Lent with First Communion at Maundy Thursday worship.

It is open to students in second grade and above (and parents) who are not yet receiving Communion.

Parent / child classes Sunday morning 9:45-10:45a:
March 3 with Pr. Zac
March 17 breadmaking

When children are baptized, parents and godparent(s) promise to “place in their child’s hands the Holy Scriptures.” We’d like to help them fulfill that promise by offering a great class for 3rd graders, and their parents and godparents, where together they will explore God’s Word.

The Bible is full of great lessons, love letters, and some really funny things. But most importantly, in it is everything God wants our children to know about Him – how much He loves them, how He wants them to live, and how to follow Jesus. The Bible is God’s love letter to all of us!

Classes will be offered in October. Bibles are given out during worship on Reformation Sunday.
