What to Expect

A Warm Welcome

The first thing we hope you will notice when you worship at Auburn Church of Christ is a warm welcome. Our greeters and members try to make each guest feel at home and are helpful in assisting you with any needs you might have during your visit.  Each week we are praying for and expecting new people to be in our worship assembly and classes. We are honored that you would consider attending the Auburn Church of Christ and will do our best to make you feel at home.

An Open Invitation

We want you to feel welcome to attend anything going on in the congregation. We will do our best to let you know what is going on in the congregation and invite you to a class, SHARE group, or lunch as we get to know you better.

Engaging Bible Classes

Our Bible classes are devoted to helping people learn about God through the Bible and applying that message practically to our everyday lives.  It is also a great  opportunity to get to know you a little better in a smaller group than Sunday worship. We hope you will consider attending a Bible classe on Sunday morning and Wednesday night.  

God-Centered Worship

The number one focus of any and all worship is God. We worship God each Sunday morning through singing, preaching, prayer, and remembering Christ through the Lord’s Supper. Second to worshiping God together, we encourage and build each other up each week as well. Not only has the Bible said to do these things, these are the things we find a joy, pleasure, and honor to do together. We want everyone to leave Sunday encouraged by God’s words of truth and to leave on mission.

Two Things You May Notice About Our Worship

Two things many people notice that are different about our worship is that we take the Lord’s Supper every week and that we do not have instruments in our worship service.

We believe the early church took the Lord’s Supper on a weekly basis because they fervently wanted to remember Jesus Christ and what He had done on the cross and through his resurrection.  The Lord’s Supper brings us closer to God and taking it every week helps us renew our commitment to him.

Our singing is without instruments because that is also the example that the early church has left for us to follow in the New Testament.  Our worship encourages everyone to participate.

We hope that your time of worship at Auburn is uplifting to you and that you can find a place to connect with God week in and week out through singing, prayer, and reflecting on what Christ has done for all of us.

SHARE Groups

On Sunday nights from September through May we meet as smaller groups in the homes of our members. These groups are a great way to get to know more people, providing a family feel that is open to welcoming new people.  These groups provide a time of connection, study, and prayer as we get to know God together in a smaller setting. Each one of our SHARE groups is a little different, be sure to talk to one of our members about which one one be a good fit for you.

How Should I Dress?

We want you to wear whatever you are comfortable in.  We have some each Sunday who wear a suit and tie while others wear jeans. Most wear what is best described as business casual, but the most important thing is not what you wear but that you come.
