Atonement Lutheran Church hosts annual Easter celebration



Fargo, North Dakota – Atonement Lutheran Church in South Fargo is hosting an Easter celebration.

A little over a thousand members of the F-M community participated in the festivities, but the majority of them were children.

They engaged in activities including Easter egg hunts, bounce castles, rock climbing walls, face painting, and even a petting zoo.

The turnout has delighted the organizers, who say they intend to keep up this tradition for many more.

“I think we especially saw it during COVID. It’s just the importance, I remember that first year we had it post-COVID and it was outside. It was gorgeous. We were inundated with people. We can see that people really missed these kinds of events, just the ability to gather. For us, this is really a way that we show love to the community,” said Katie Stensgard, the Kids Ministries Director.

Their summer mission travels will be funded in part by the revenue from concessions.
