Atonement’s Little Free Library 

The Little Free Library at Atonement done!  Watch for the red, white and blue library on the southwest corner of the church property by the south Sunday school entrance.  Vern and Mary Ann Leitch, members of Atonement, built and donated the library and the Property Committee is ready to set it in place.  Thanks to everyone who was involved in this project.  Stop by and visit our own Little Free Library and tell your friends.

What is a Little Free Library?  It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where Atonement members and our neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.

Let's keep in touch!

Email is the most efficient way of keeping you informed about all that is going on at your church.  Unfortunately, it is difficult to keep up with changing email addresses and cell phone numbers, and households dropping their land lines.  Please take a moment to update your contact information using the Let’s Keep in Touch Cards available at the welcome center or in the church office.




As a young adult, I belonged to a church that practiced prayer really well, and throughout the year, we prayed for all the families in our congregation.  For me, it made such a difference to know I belonged to a community that prayed for me by name and I’d like to offer this to you.  Beginning in February, we will start to pray our way through the congregation.  Each week 5-8 families will receive a post card indicating that we will name your family in prayer that week and during the Tuesday staff meeting and weekend worship.  If you have specific prayer concerns, you will be invited to contact me or Pastor Kristen.  The specifics of your requests will not be named publically…God already knows…so we will only lift your name along with the other families we pray for that week.  It may be a bit awkward at first, as is any new practice.  My prayer is that soon we will give thanks that we belong to a Praying Church.   Watch your mailbox beginning in February for your prayer card.  Until then, please hold this new venture in prayer.   


Prayers for Healing in the Weekly Bulletin – You will notice that we now keep people on the prayers for healing list for 4 weeks.  If you desire continued prayer, please contact the church office (252-6203) and we will add your name again.  At any time, if you would like to request prayers for yourself or a loved one, please contact the church office and we will add you to the prayer list.


"Reaching up, Reaching out"

Reaching up to God:  We build personal relationships with God through worship, prayer, Bible study and Christian fellowship.

Reaching out to others:  God's love leads us to share the message of Jesus Christ with others through love, our lives and our gifts in our faith community and the world.
