Make a difference in the lives of others – reach out to the contact person noted for each activity, and share your gifts at Atonement and in our community. You may also email Ros for more information.
Worship. Communion Servers share the bread/wine/grape juice at worship services during the weekend, and for special services. Lectors/Readers share the first and second lessons during worship services; lessons are sent out during the week before your assigned Sunday so that you may review them. Please contact Ros Thorpe with questions.
Cafe. The Atonement Cafe is offered between services on Sunday mornings, providing members and guests a welcome place to grab a cup of coffee or soda, a breakfast pastry, and a chance to greet old friends and new. Assistance is needed with setting up, serving, and cleaning up; volunteers can serve once a month. Contact Ricki Neuman for details.
Musicians for Nursing Home Services. Atonement members visit 2 senior living facilities in OPKS the 4th Wednesday of each month, and provide worship and communion. The residents always enjoy special music – if you sing or play an instrument, please consider sharing your gift with them! Contact Deacon Cherri Jestmore for details.
Book Drive for Brookridge. Share the love with our neighborhood school, Brookridge Elementary! Bring new or gently used books to Atonement during the month of February and drop them off at the Sunday School check-in table in the lobby.
