Parish Life

“Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in the prayers?”  “I will with God’s help.”   - The Baptismal Covenant, BCP, p. 304

 

You’re invited to share with us in celebrations & remembrances – worship, spiritual growth, small groups and big community events, in music and the arts, in outreach and service.

 

Our COUNTRY FAIR will be held on November 19 (Preview Wine & Cheese) and November 20 (Fair).  All are welcome to our famous fall fair – with Silent Auction (furniture, art, rare items), Tricky Tray (lots of baskets), Bake Booth (all homemade!), Serendipity Boutique (china, glass, collectibles, jewelry), Books, Children’s Corner (gently used toys and clothes), Holiday Booth, Country Kitchen (beef chili, pea soup, hot dogs, and beverages).

ALL PARISH OPEN HOUSE - All Parish Open Houses at parishioners’  homes. The last Open House was a barbecue held on June 14th at the Preolo's house. If you’d like to host one, please contact our Wardens Fran and John, or Carol and Roberta, Parish Life Chairs.

LABYRINTH - The Labyrinth located on the front lawn (with patio and bench) is OPEN weather permitting, all year round.    Walk the labyrinth at any time.  Brochures have also been prepared with information and suggested meditations, and are available inside (and occasionally on the bench outside.)  The Labyrinth is occasionally incorporated into our Sunday 10 am service.

 

REFRESHMENTS:   Every Sunday church members volunteer to offer refreshments after the 10 am service. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and catch up with those we know.  

 

SMALL GROUPS for spiritual growth and fellowship are detailed on our Adult Ministries page.  Join us for Discovery Nights, Bible Study, Book Group, Quiet Days, and the annual fall Adult Education Retreat.

 

DURING THE CHURCH YEAR, Atonement holds a number of opportunities to gather and get to know each other better, such as:  The Country Fair in the fall, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper in the winter, the Parish Soup Supper during Lent, the Newcomers’ Brunch,
