Welcome to the website of Presbyterian Church of the Atonement! We are so glad you decided to visit. The people of Atonement are growing in vital, personal relationships with Christ and each other. On any given Sunday you will see people who are just deciding whether to begin the journey of faith, others who are mature and joyful Christians, and many who are in-between. There is a place for you at Church of Atonement!  We invite you to join with us as we worship our Lord this Sunday. 

We are located in Silver Spring, MD, conveniently located just south of Westfield Wheaton Shopping Mall, Wheaton Metro Station, and the new residential communities including Leesborough Townhomes, Westwood Gardens, the Tiers at Wheaton, and the Encore condominiums in Wheaton.

The Paintings of Rembrandt at the Church of Atonement
Church of Atonement's Rembrandt collection includes nine reproductions of key biblical scenes. The paintings are on displayed in Narthex, Chapel, and Alcove on the main level. We invite you to stroll among the paintings and imagine what it would be like if you had been there and witnessed the events.
