The friendly, fun-loving, mission-minded teens at Atonement want to welcome you to our church and invite you to take part in the weekly ministries that our youth participate in. We train young people to develop a personal, daily relationship with Christ, and to also practice a lifestyle of Christian service.
During the school year, we meet weekly to learn from scripture and life lessons. We also provide activities to give our youth the chance for good Christian fun and fellowship so our teens have a well rounded experience. We go on summer mission trips and participate in local ministry opportunities. Please browse the tabs below to learn more info about each of our youth departments.
2021-2022 program year
Ages/Grades: 6th grade through October of 9th grade
Confirmation Class is a 3-year program for middle school youth in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades, designed to prepare students for adult discipleship in the Christian church. It culminates with the Rite of Confirmation (also known as Affirmation of Baptism). The program overview includes Luther’s Small Catechism and Biblical studies, participation in Small Group discussion, service, fellowship events, and Sunday worship.
Seesions will include instruction by one of our pastors and time in an assigned small group. Each group is led by a trained adult leader.
JAM (Jesus and Me)
2021 – 2022
Wednesday Evenings – Mix of in-person and Zoom
JAM is a community of High School Students that seek to build a strong foundation of faith, helping teens grow in wisdom and knowledge as they navigate the pressures and opportunities of High School. We have social time each week as well as time in small groups with adult ‘shepherds.’ Some weeks we take on very serious topics, and some weeks are laid back. We laugh, we pray, and we encourage one another.
Students grow closer to God and to friends (as well as making new friends). We pray that this hour each week will be a helpful boost through the crazy years of High School and that our time together empowers and emboldens students to be the people God is calling them to be.
Due to the hectic schedules of High School students, there is no expectation of weekly attendance. Students are often absent during seasons (football, marching band, soccer, musical rehearsals…) and then rejoin when they get the chance. Students are welcome to bring friends. JAM is always open! Join us on Wednesday nights!
JAM – Adult Volunteer
Our JAM Program is enhanced through our dedicated parent helpers and adult volunteers.
