CHURCH OF THE ATONEMENT Episcopal

Atonement’s Church School is a dynamic Christian formation program which includes learning, worship and music, and service to others. Take home material promotes conversation between parents and children to encourage sharing their faith journeys and “stories.” We seek to help our children develop a relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer and sacraments, foster their sense of the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives, and become active members of the faith community.
Each Sunday morning children begin worship with their parents in the Church. After the Collect, they are dismissed to attend Church School (around 10:05 am). The Church School is for children in grades K-6, led by our Christian Education Director, Ms. Mikayla Kosstyn. Confirmation class is for grades 7-9 meets.
Occasionally we hold a "family service" when young people stay in church to help lead worship, offering their gifts and engaging the congregation in an interactive program/sermon.
Young people are confirmed by Bishop Hughes takes place either in the 8th or 9th grade. They join adults who are being confirmed or received into The Episcopal Church in one service in the spring.
