Children of all ages are welcome at Atonement. We are pleased to offer Sunday school programs for children in kindergarten through 8th grade.
Children in kindergarten through 2nd grade meet with Linda Jo Clough. This class uses the Spark! Activate Faith series, which follows the lectionary. This class also does regular craft projects with clay, painting, and other materials.
Children in 3rd through 8th grade meet with Amanda Kim and Rufus Gonzales. This class also used the Spark! Activate Faith series. Class starts out with a Bible verse that corresponds with that day's lesson from the worship service. Every week features a short Bible Memory Verse, and children who can remember their verse the following week get a treat. This class also plays games, does crafts, has music days, and service days.
Both classes engage in prayer, discussion, and have a lot of fun together, too.
As the population of children and youth at Atonement grows, so will our programming. We are currently planning a Youth Group for grades 6–12 to begin in Fall 2022.
Finally, all children are welcome to serve as acolytes during the masses. This is a wonderful way to keep children engaged and curious every Sunday.
