The Young Adult Ministry seeks to satisfy the unique needs of young adults: late teens, 20’s and 30’s by providing fellowship, spiritual enrichment and opportunities for community service. The goal is to create a community with a unique identity that fosters individual growth and keep young adults connected to Atonement.
We accomplish that goal through two main groups: Atonement Young Adults or AYA and our Adopt-a-Student program.
Atonement Young Adults
Atonement Young Adults (or AYA) is a community of believers, ages 18-30ish, growing together in Christ through Bible studies, serving others, fellowship and prayer. We invite all young adults, whether married or single to be part of this ministry.

Adopt-a-Student helps connect with our students (ages 17-25) while they are away from home. As part of this program, the Atonement community is there to care, encourage, support and connect college students and military personnel. Here students are carefully and thoughtfully placed with an Atonement member or family who support and encourage them while away from home. They may do so by sending notes and text messages, unexpected treats, spiritual mentorship, and the knowledge that people back home offer support.
People (individuals or families) are also needed to sponsor one of our young members while they are at college, in the military, or taking a year off from school. If you are interested in becoming part of this ministry, either on the “student” or Atonement sponsor side, please click the appropriate button below.
