ATTIC (Atonement Teens Together in Christ)
Junior and senior high school students meet Sunday mornings during the school year in the Youth Room for fellowship and to deepen their faith life. Join us anytime!
Junior High (Grades 6–8)
During the school year, junior high students are encouraged to participate in events (for example, Junior High Jam) that provide opportunities to share fellowship, serve others, and worship God. They also participate in canoe camping trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, summer servant trips, synod youth gatherings, and summer get-togethers. Students are encouraged to participate in worship, Bible studies, and servant projects.
Luther Crest Bible Camp
Atonement has a strong partnership with Luther Crest Bible Camp located on West Lake Carlos near Alexandria. LCBC offers summer camps for children and youth as well as retreat opportunities for adults. Scholarships are available to Atonement families who need assistance. For more information, contact Luther Crest by email
Peer Ministry—“SOUL Seekers”
Peer ministers are examples to others. Young learn they are important to their church because the church recognizes them as vital participants in ministry. Peer ministers form lifelong habits of “doing unto the least of these.” They willingly take on leadership and service projects. The SOUL Seekers coordinate and facilitate Atonement’s Giving Tree and summer day camp.
Senior High (Grades 9–12)
Senior high students share fellowship and fun at a variety of events. Students participate in synod and national youth gatherings. Summer trips include canoe camping to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, leadership retreats, and service trips. Students are encouraged to participate in worship, Bible studies, and service projects.
