Serving God's People for over 130 years!
Welcome to Atonement
Welcome to the Church of the Atonement, an Episcopal church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. For more than 130 years, Atonement has been a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our Edgewater neighborhood and in the wider community. Today, we continue in that witness as an active, visionary, and inclusive congregation that serves God through daily prayer and worship, the practice of lifelong Christian learning, and ministries of outreach and justice.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your walk of faith, you are most welcome here. Your presence, your faith, your prayers, and your questions are wanted here. Your gifts and your energy are needed here. You are invited to come and see what God has in mind for you here.
Queers at Atonement meeting Jan. 22
Our LGBTQ+ group here at Atonement, Queers & Atonement, will have its first 2022 meeting on Sat., Jan. 22 at 11:00 a.m. using Zoom because of the current COVID surge. For this meeting you are invited to share an object of importance for which you can tell the background story. Possibilities of things you might consider bringing include family heirlooms, a photo, objects from a vacation, a gift from a friend, etc. The object you share may or may not be directly connected to your experience as an LGBTQ+ person or ally.

From the roots of Abraham
What Does Jewish Holy Tradition Mean for Jews? What Does it Mean for Christians?
Facilitator: Benjamin Ricciardi
Join us for this look at interfaith traditions on Sun., Jan. 23 at 10:00 a.m. Christians have always regarded the Jewish scriptures as our own scriptures as well. But despite the Church recognizing that scripture is never separable from its accompanying oral tradition, the Jewish oral tradition around the Old Testament has generally been ignored by Christians. What should Christians' relationship to Jewish oral tradition be?
Parish annual meeting scheduled
Atonement will hold its annual meeting on Sun., Jan. 30 in the nave of the church. It will be possible to attend on Zoom as well as in person (link to come). Members will be asked to elect members of vestry and delegates to the Diocesan Convention in November. Candidate profiles are below.
Our regular worship service schedule will change for that Sunday so attendees from all services can join us for the meeting. We will do one combined Sung Mass at 10:00 a.m.and the annual meeting will immediately follow.
