What To Expect

Our typical worship service lasts about 60 minutes.

Come as you are comfortable! YOU are welcome here and you will find us wearing anything from shorts to suits.

We sing a mix of contemporary and traditional music and worship includes music from our pipe organ, piano, choir, jazz band, bell choir and more.

Children can join us in worship and childcare is available in our nursery. There are activities for all age groups.

Plan to hang around after worship for fellowship and meeting new people.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your beliefs?
ELCA Teaching:
The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.

ELCA teaching or theology serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching or theology prepares members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.

Scriptures, Creeds and Confessions:
The ELCA’s official Confession of Faith identifies the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (commonly called the Bible); the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds; and the Lutheran confessional writings in the Book of Concord as the basis for our teaching. ELCA congregations make the same affirmation in their governing documents, and ELCA pastors and deacons promise to carry out their ministry in accordance with these teaching sources. This Confession of Faith is more than just words in an official document. Every Sunday in worship ELCA congregations hear God’s word from the Scriptures, pray as Jesus taught and come to the Lord’s Table expecting to receive the mercies that the Triune God promises. Throughout the week ELCA members continue to live by faith, serving others freely and generously in all that they do because they trust God’s promise in the Gospel. In small groups and at sick beds, in private devotions and in daily work, this faith saturates all of life.

Teaching for a life of faith:
This connection to all of life is the clearest demonstration of the authority that the canonical Scriptures, the ecumenical Creeds and the Lutheran Confessions have in the ELCA. The Holy Spirit uses these witnesses to create, strengthen and sustain faith in Jesus Christ and the life we have in him. That life-giving work continues every day, as Martin Luther explained in the Small Catechism: the Holy Spirit “calls, gathers, enlightens and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth and preserves it in union with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.” 
Is Atonement a Welcoming Congregation?
YOU are welcome at Atonement. Atonement Lutheran Church believes that all people are created by God and share the same need for forgiveness, hope, and healing. Even on issues where it is difficult to reach a consensus, Atonement desires to reflect the love of Jesus with a welcoming spirit. Moving beyond the common distinctions of race, national origin, age, gender, physical, mental, and emotional condition or capacity, political perspective, personal history, marital status, sexual orientation, and economic or social situation, we seek to invite and welcome all people to experience God’s love and grace.
What is your worship service style?
Atonement's worship services follow Lutheran liturgy, with the addition of a variety of musicians and hymn styles. Our worship is a blend of worship styles. Music ranges from traditional hymns to brass jazz band music.
How should I dress?
Come as you are and be comfortable! You will find worshippers in anything from jeans to dresses and suits!
Will children feel welcome?
Yes! We love kids! Parents and children are encouraged to attend worship together with friends and neighbors. Should it be one of those times when sitting still is just too challenging, we also offer a crib room and a staffed nursery north of the sanctuary for children up to age 5. Parents can also sit with their children in the lobby, where they can hear and follow the services together.
Who is invited to receive communion?
At Atonement, we practice “open communion,” which means that everyone and anyone is welcome at God’s table. It does not matter what denomination you belong to, which congregation you attend, or even if you are a church-goer at all; YOU are welcome to the table with us. (You will find guidance for communion in the printed worship bulletin at each worship service.)
How accessible is Atonement's campus?
Atonement has three entrances - at the north, east, and south sides of the building. All have handicapped accessible parking and ramps, and lead to the sanctuary at the south end of the building. We also offer personal hearing systems in the sanctuary for those experiencing difficulty hearing (for assistance, please speak to an usher). Restrooms are located next to the nursery, north of the sanctuary.
How can I become a member of Atonement?
We rejoice when we welcome members at Atonement! "Atonement 101" classes are offered periodically throughout the year when Pastor Zac visits with those interested in membership. For more information on becoming a member of Atonement Lutheran Church, please visit our Membership Page
