Ministries

Christian Education

Presbyterians value learning, and we offer an adult Sunday School class after worship each week. The class meets in our church lounge where, over coffee and treats, we discuss topics to help us better understand our role as Christians in today’s world. Invited guest lecturers often guide our conversations. Films and documentaries also help inform the class discussions.

The youth of our church may participate in Sunday School, as well as a fellowship group, both of which meet weekly, under the guidance of our youth leader. Parents often play an active role as drivers and chaperones for events.

A weekly Bible Study convenes for interested members gathering to study and discuss the Scriptures and what they teach us.

Our older young people may volunteer to be a part of the team of acolytes, or worship helpers, who symbolically bring in God’s Light by lighting the candles at the beginning of each Sunday worship service.

Fellowship

Part of our life as Presbyterians is the enjoyment of the fellowship with others. After worship, coffee and cookies greet congregants as they leave the Sanctuary. Several times a year, we gather for a church lunch.

Special social events and work sessions strengthen our bonds of friendship and community.

Friend's Table

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.

Local Mission

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.

Boy Scouts

The troop is open to new youth members.

Missions Around the World

A group of dedicated APC members have traveled to Milargro, Mexico to help the Rocka Firma Presbyterian Church build their new church. Several members of the APC have been involved with the Presbyterian Disaster Relief program.
