S.U.R.G.E. Serving Under a Real God Everyday
Youth Pastor Jeff Peters leads Atonement Church youth between 6th and 12th grades on Friday nights from 7-9pm in Atonement’s Youth Room. Pastor Jeff promotes teen fellowship, weekly Bible study, service projects, mission trips, and attendance at worship. He also coordinates fund-raising as needed, works with the church leadership to promote youth participation in worship, service, and other activities of hospitality (such as the Youth Sundays, Claymont Christmas parade, Christmas Family Service, 5th Sunday events). Some of their favorite activities include attending the annual youth rally in Ocean City every year, overnight lock-ins at church, and enjoying fellowship on Friday nights in their awesome Youth Room before Bible study begins.

Confirmation is an honored tradition for our youth, ages 12-17 years of age. Confirmation is a milestone to mark the first time a Christian publicly “confirms” to live a Christian life according to their membership and baptismal vows. Confirmation classes teach the teens what Confirmation is and what it means to be a Christian. Once the classes are completed, confirmands join the church and confirm their faith in Christ Jesus. If possible, students are received into the congregation during Eastertide or on fifth Sundays during the year.
