Returning

As we return to our weekly schedules at the beginning of the school year, we will also gather around those who have returned from the Brazil Mission Trip, as they will share their experiences with us. We will celebrate their work and hear their stories!  On Thursday, August 29 at 5:45 p.m., we will share…

A Number Two Pencil

As we have meandered through the weeks of summer, and we have returned from our road trips, the inertia of the next couple weeks will sweep us up into the days of school.  Whether we have to pack a lunch box for someone in our home or not, we feel the energy of school all…

Road Trip

There is a time in our lives when taking a road trip feels like a right of passage.  It might mark the transition from adolescence to adulthood.  It can allow us to “see” the world.  A road trip can take on mythic proportions, like when we made the trip of a lifetime driving over a…

Meander

There are certain words that are easier to say in the summer. They belong to the family of words that help us lower our guard and open our eyes, where we do not have to focus so much on the task at hand. One of those words, which also sounds like a word that belongs to the…

Water U Doing?

I saw a question on a t-shirt years ago, which read, “Water U Doing?”  It was the type of question that captures your attention. It makes you wonder what the difference is between “What are you doing?” and “Water U Doing?” It is a question asked by Watering Malawi. Auburn FBC has supported Watering Malawi…

Children of the Church

On Sunday, May 19, families with children and preschoolers will gather in the Activities Building for lunch, enjoying BBQ and a potluck of sides. It will also be the Fifth Sunday in the season of Easter, which is more than halfway through the Great Fifty Days between Easter and Pentecost, where the Church celebrates the…

Choir Recognition

On Sunday, May 5 at 6:15 p.m., the children and youth of the church will share the music they have been preparing at our Choir Recognition Service. They will stand on the steps at the front of the sanctuary and offer the gift of music.  It is music that teaches and comforts, calls and instructs!…

Holy Week

It is the week that redefines all other weeks! Throughout the history of the Church, it has also been called, The Great Week. It allows us to recall and rehearse the events of Jesus’ life during his final days. It begins on Palm Sunday, where we wave palm branches in the air and throw our…

A Survey about Calling

Our congregation is participating in the Life is Calling Initiative at Samford University’s Center for Congregational Resources. Our Life is Calling Committee (Beth Smith, Mark Wilson, Ronda West, Leah Duzy, & Patrick White) has been meeting and reflecting on our calling as a congregation. They will also apply for a grant for our congregation through…

Making Room

After two weeks of Lent, the cross-shaped ashes on our foreheads have fallen off. When we look in the mirror, we no longer see the smudge of ashes, claiming us in such a unique way. We remain, though, on the journey of Lent, which began on Ash Wednesday. Even though the cross is no longer…
