Service at Atonement
Service is important to the people of Atonement. We have many opportunities to make a difference both here at Atonement and in the community around us.
Some of the current opportunities include:
Congregations in Service (C.I.S.)
CIS is a organization of multiple North County Churches coming together to make a difference for the community.
Each year members of Atonement, and their friends prepare and deliver complete thanksgiving meals for the homeless population of the area.
Have you ever wanted help the person on the street corner? But, not wanted to give money? Grab a Red Bag at the door and provide non perishable food in a convenient little bag to hand out. You can serve others and give them good food.
We primarily work with Humanitri through their transition homes ministry. Providing Transformational Housing helping families facing homelessness achieve stability in a safe and supportive community, providing the skills and resources they need to thrive. In addition to helping get houses and apartments ready to be homes we also provide extra Christmas warmth each year with our giving tree.
Feed My Starving Children
2019 will be the third year that working with CIS, we will have a food packing event in support of the Feed My Starving Children Organization. For more information see: https://www.fmsc.org/ Donations to purchase the supplies and volunteers to organize the event along with volunteers to pack the food are needed.
Immanuel Breakfast at Antioch Baptist
Once a month we work with our sister church to provide a Sunday Morning Breakfast to the homeless community of St Louis. Teams head down to prepare, serve and share time with the people that come for the meal.
Room at the Inn
Atonement opens its doors to homeless families for a safe place to stay. Additionally we offer dinner and breakfast and when appropriate we provide entertainment. A dedicated team of volunteers works hard each month to make that night a little nicer.
Contact us to see how you can help.
When a family is dealing with the death of a loved one our Helping Hand team can step in help by providing a luncheon for the family and guests following the funeral service.
T.E.A.M. in Florissant and PAKT Community Resource Center in Ferguson.
Each month we collect non perishable good for two of the area food pantries. Additionally, food from the Atonement community gardens are also donated to provide fresh vegetables.
