Mission and Ministry in the Future
The Atonement Endowment Fund looks forward by setting aside funds to enhance God’s mission for our church in the future. Gifts and bequests to the Fund are invested and grow over time to have a sizable pool of money from which a portion can be withdrawn to support the specific purposes of the Fund in these vital areas:
Parish Nursing and Wellness
Worship and Music
God's Chosen Pool
As they have for the past ten years, Atonement’s Men’s Club facilitated God's Chosen Pool for the 2022 - 2023 pro football season. Participants selected an underdog each week and earned points when their team pulled an upset. Points accumulated throughout the season to determine the pool winner, who designated a worthy cause to receive a portion of the money in the pool, with the remainder going to the Endowment Fund.
Congratulations, Greg Viehman, on earning the most points for the 2022 - 2023 season, and thank you for designating the $125 pool winnings toward repairs for Atonement's magnificent organ!
On behalf of the Men's Club and everyone at Atonement, we thank all 37 participants in the 2022-2023 God's Chosen Pool. We hope you will participate next season and encourage you to invite family and friends to join in the fun. Visit this web page in August to learn how.
