In 2018, the Friends Table will start its 15th year of outreach to the community. Each Monday, lunch is served from 11 am to noon. Many guests join us in Fellowship Hall for good food and fellowship. Two carry-out meals are also available for those who cannot stay. We also have volunteers who deliver meals to shut-ins weekly. God has blessed this mission and all volunteers feel blessed to be involved in this ministry.
Our church deacons often step in to provide assistance to members and non-members who are in need.
The church has a long history of supporting Scout organizations. Currently, we provide a meeting place and financial assistance to several units, serving boys and girls from this area.
Each week, the money collected through regular offering supports a wide variety of church services and unique missions in Auburn, in America and internationally. Our church annually directs special offerings to advance special interests of our denomination which include peacemaking endeavors, disaster assistance, care for children with incarcerated parents, minority youth and youth at risk, and retired ministers and their spouses.
