ONE OF OUR EXPECTATIONS for members of Atonement is that they move spiritually closer to Christ in their personal faith journeys. One of the core catalysts in making that happen is to spend time in God’s Word as well as engage in small groups and develop spiritual friendships. Atonement offers several opportunities for adults to enrich their knowledge of God, of the church and of ourselves by developing a character that is more like Jesus Christ. Please take a moment to read through the offerings on this page and consider joining one or more of these studies to help move you along the path closer to Jesus.
Atonement Men’s Group
Runs all year around
You don’t have to do life alone. In fact, you were never meant to. God created every man to exist in community. Our Saturday morning men’s ministry is a group of guys striving to become the men God created them to be while encouraging the same in one another. Here you’ll find a relaxed setting where men enjoy good discussion, great teaching and lighter moments. You will also have an opportunity to get to know other men on the same journey of learning how to be “God’s men” in today’s culture.
This group meets over coffee and morning treats* to learn from selected studies and usually breaks up into smaller groups to allow time for sharing experiences and practical applications of God’s Word in daily living. Participation includes occasional full or half day service projects, hosting a breakfast along with a speaker to address men’s issues or a guy’s night out—a way to get together just to have fun and engage socially from time to time. Even if you’re not a regular in this group, all men are welcome to be part of our service or social events.
This is an open group and all are invited to take part: all ages, married or not, member or friends of members—we’re always open to making room for one more to join. To get more details about the current or upcoming Men’s Ministry sessions, please check our announcements page.

Women’s Study Group
Tuesday morning women’s Bible study, 9:15 to 11:15 am
Runs from September through April
Our Tuesday morning women’s Bible study group is made up of women young and old, single and married, new mothers and grandmothers. We have a mix of Atonement members and women from other congregations in the area. Women’s Bible Study is a time for us to gather each week, share conversation, support one another in our faith journeys, and learn how God’s Word speaks into our lives each and every day.
Safe, supervised childcare is also provided at no additional cost for those who need it. To get more details about the current or upcoming Women’s Bible study sessions being offered at Atonement, please check our announcements page to learn about current sessions or topics.

Mommy & Me
Mommy & Me Group
Meets on the first and third Wednesday mornings, 9:30 to 10:30 am
Runs from September through May
Mommy & Me is a way for moms to connect in a welcoming environment while providing socialization and fun for our children. We meet the first and third Wednesday of each month from September to May in the church nursery at 9:30 am. We occasionally meet elsewhere (someone’s home, park, etc.) and will communicate that via email. During the summer we will be planning a monthly get together. We hope you will join us at the next meeting for a time to play, relax and build new friendships!
