An important way to strengthen ties to Auburn Presbyterian and your fellow worshippers is to meet and work alongside them. Activate yourself and get involved! We welcome you warmly, whether you are a member or not.
We welcome all who want to join us in worship! Worship service: Sunday at 10am
You may find satisfaction in learning more—about the Christian church worldwide, about the Bible and the wisdom in it, or about your role in service to the church.
You can help serve the world through the Auburn Presbyterian Church. Even as a non-member, your active involvement can help change lives through established church programs.
Some members have embarked on service adventures to serve others, from helping build a new church to rehabilitating homes in disaster-stricken areas
Through regular giving, church members can reach out through a number of local, non-denominational community initiatives like Habitat for Humanity, Dekalb Memorial's Hospital chaplain services, and Scouting for youth. Your contributions through offerings at worship can be directed to international efforts, such as programs that work toward alleviating hunger, disaster relief, and aid and development of needy people near and far.
Auburn Presbyterian members are enthusiastic about greeting new people. Plan to attend our occasional fellowship events, congregational meals, or coffee time right after Sunday worship.
Traditional Worship Service: Sunday at 10:00 AM
Adult Sunday School: Sunday at 11:15 AM
Youth: Sunday at 9:00 AM
Bible Study: Wednesday at 6:00 PM
The Friends Table is a ministry that offers a free weekly meal to anyone in the community who would need a warm meal and a friendly smile. Lunch is served in Fellowship Hall every Monday from 11:00-12:00.
The Pastor assumes the leadership role in organizing and providing prayer opportunities for our members.
Through his sermons, he is always enlightening our thoughts and helping us to follow the
Christian path. Many visits are made to shut-ins, those in need, as well as those who are in the hospital.
The church offers a Bible study class which meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00.
The Auburn Presbyterian Church members enjoy fellowship not only during the regular
church service but often in informal settings.
Several times a year, we have a potluck meal in Fellowship Hall where people can talk and socialize. Sometimes we enjoy holding our church service in our garden or on the beach at Pokagon State Park. In the past, we have offered carriage rides at Christmas and opened our church for the community Christmas walk. Often, we sponsor a bus trip to Chicago to enjoy the lights or see a musical. To encourage and enjoy the arts, we have invited guest musicians to perform concerts in our sanctuary. We also have hosted the opening reading of a member’s original play. Our church has been involved in the effort to raise funds and food for the needy by walking in a community sponsored walk.
By becoming involved with others, you learn that it also enriches your own life.
Becoming a member
The worship services at the APC are open to all.
The Auburn Presbyterian church has several regular attendees at Sunday worship who have not officially joined our church. You don't need to be a member to attend.
If you are "church shopping," plan to visit a few times, not just once, to see if the Auburn Presbyterian church is a good fit. We welcome all who want to share in learning the will of God. If you find that the Presbyterian outlook is similar to your own, or it challenges you to become the kind of person God wants you to be, then consider becoming a member.
Membership offers a path of commitment to a new relationship with God, as well as to humankind and fellow Presbyterians. For those new to the Presbyterian Church, a series of informal classes are offered by the Pastor to clarify your new life with Christ within a Christian church, with much time given to your own questions and concerns, all at your own desired pace.
Who to see? The Pastor. Any member can help you connect with the pastor.
Arts in the church
Worship services at Auburn Presbyterian always include music. Always! The Bible exhorts Christians to "raise a joyful noise to the Lord," and we try! The church can find a place for you to express your own love of music. Our church choir sings in the Sunday worship most Sundays, and meets for rehearsal once a week. It's a great avenue for providing worship music along with others who soon become your friends. We often find a place to include solo vocalists and instrumentalists in worship.
Auburn Presbyterian can be a home for self-expression. Many areas in the church are decorated with art produced by members. Just come and look around. You may have a personal talent that you can share with others. Art may also be found outdoors. Members find the church garden is a lovely spot for quiet contemplation or a family picnic.
The Presbyterian Women support various missions in the church and community.
