Impacting Lives Through Christ is the mission statement of Atonement Lutheran Church and School. Impacting Lives Through Christ is actually more than just a statement; it is a way of life at Atonement. Everything that we do, whether it is teaching our students or having our worship services, going out into our community to help with a need or gathering together family style to celebrate and have fun, going on a mission trip to another country or serving in our community, and anything and everything in between, we do it all to thank God for the blessings that He has given to us as well as to be a blessing and share His love with others.
The life of a Christian is more than just going to church on a Sunday morning; it is about how Christ is impacting every aspect of your life. Everything that we do: going to work/school, playing, caring for our family, going to the gym, having dinner with friends . . . we do all of it living in the grace of God, through the forgiveness we receive from Jesus, and we live it out now so that others can share in that same grace and hope. Being a Christian does not mean that you need to go knocking on doors and standing on street corners, but it does mean that you live in the new identity and the forgiveness that God has given to you, and allow Him to use you to impact the lives of others. We do this not to earn God’s love, but because as God tells us in His Word (the Bible): “we love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19) That is what Impacting Lives Through Christ is all about, and that is what we at Atonement strive to live on a daily basis!
