Looking for a more meditative form of worship? Look no further! Our Taizé service is a candlelight service of simple songs, scripture, prayer and ten minutes of silence. It is designed to encourage people of different Christian backgrounds, or none at all, to worship together. The service is accompanied by piano, flute, drum, and voice.
Our Taizé service is described by one of our members as “the most peaceful 45 minutes in my busy life.”
Baptism, Marriage, Confirmation, Reconciliation/Confession, as well as pastoral counseling are offered to all – by appointment; you don’t have to be a member of Atonement. Call or contact us by email, and we’ll get back to you.
Even better drop by the church office during regular hours.
