Are you a former member of Atonement Lutheran Church?
If so, the church wants to invite you to a special event later this year. The church, located at 9242 Kiefer Blvd., is celebrating its 50th anniversary on November 4.
The event will start with a worship service at 10 a.m., followed by lunch at the Dante Club on Fair Oaks Blvd. Past ministers will be present, including founding Pastor James Carr.
During the past 50 years, Atonement has offered a variety of ministries and community activites for its members, including Bible study, choir and knitting groups that make items for the homeless.
The church has also become an important gathering place in Rosemont.
Over the years, several Rosement community groups have used the church as a meeting place. Neighborhood watch groups, Girl Scouts and other organizations have all gathered at Atonement.
If you're a former Atonement member or would like to attend the anniversary event, please contact Diane Truax at 916-363-5663 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
