At the Episcopal Church of the Atonement, we are a community Drawn in by Faith and Reaching out in Love. We are united in faith and in Jesus’ call to love God and our neighbor. Our mission is to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands, and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith. We strive, with God’s help, to seek the image of God in all people.

  • Create a safe place for children, families, and our elders.
  • Work for justice, freedom, and peace among all people and to be active in the world as witnesses of God’s love.
  • Be a welcoming and safe place for each person to be who they are and love who they love.
