Upcoming Events at Atonement
Advent Calendar for Outreach
Throughout Advent, we have planned a number of ways to share our gifts with local shelters, our community, and our international partners. Our first activity will be a "Sharing Tree" with the names of local children whose families could use some extra help this year and we connected with at our recent Halloween party. The tree will be up just on November 28 and tags will include the name of the child as well as a suggested gift. In anticipation of our very own St. Nick delivering these gifts, we'll ask that the gift be purchased and brought back to the church by December 10. Look for the Sharing Tree on November 28.
10th Annual World AIDS Day Performance
Mark your calendars for Friday, December 1, at 7:00 pm “The Future of Keys,” evoking images of opening, access, and progress, is the theme of this year’s event. As in years past, the performance is free and all are welcome. Proceeds from voluntary donations benefit Bonaventure House, Alexian Brothers’ residential care facility in Lakeview for men and women living with HIV/AIDS. Bonaventure House provides comprehensive services to guide residents to stable housing and independent living. Once again this year, John Dally, Professor of Theology and Culture at Bexley Seabury Seminary, has worked with Bonaventure House residents and friends to develop monologues, poetry, and music drawn from their experiences of rejection, addiction, recovery, and rebirth to share in the performance. A reception with light refreshments will follow the program.
- 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month - All Welcome
An ongoing adult study group will look into Anglo-Catholicism, its history, doctrines, liturgy, primary figures, and modern expressions. This series will engage several readings for discussion and will meet on the first and third Sundays of each month. The study group will begin 15 minutes after the 11 o'clock service ends and will last for no more than 90 minutes. Participants will be encouraged to get a snack at Coffee Hour (or to bring a sack lunch, if they'd like). Dr. Alberto Varona, a professor of Clinical Psychology at Adler University, will be facilitating the study group discussions. If interested, please contact Alberto at firstname.lastname@example.org and request the reading materials.
Next session: Sunday, November 26 (rescheduled from Nov. 19)
