Common Questions

Do I have to be a Christian to come to Mt. Auburn? Do I have to believe the same way you do before I attend? Do I have to have it all together before I show up?

Absolutely not! When Jesus said come as you are, He did not mean go get clean and then when you are good enough He'll accept you. He meant to simply come as you are. At Mt. Auburn, we invite you to come as you are.  We want to help you know God better. Knowing God better is a journey. Our desire is to partner with you wherever you may be on that journey, encourage you, and help you figure out some next steps. 

What should I wear?

We're more concerned about what's on the inside of a person than what's on the outside. You are welcome to wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable in. You'll find people wearing everything from sandals, jeans, and t-shirts to dresses, dress shirts, and ties. Our church service at 10:30 a.m. tends to be more contemporary and casual than the 9 a.m. service, but you are welcome to wear clothes you feel comfortable into either service. 

What's available for my kids?

Raising a generation of people who are joy-filled, resilient and empowered means leading our kids to have a strong relationship with Jesus. We are here to partner with you in that. Our children's ministry is dedicated to helping support you and your children. During our services, we offer a nursery for infants and children ages birth to 2 years and fun classes for toddlers. Preschoolers ages 3-5 through grade 5 are offered Sunday School classes at 9 a.m. During the 10:30 a.m. a worship service designed for children ages 4-grade 5 called JAM (Jesus and Me) is held in The Chambers.

Are you going to call me out or embarrass me?

We want you to feel comfortable. During the church service we have a short, informal period for people to greet each other. Some people walk around and greet as many as they can. Many other people just stand where they are and shake hands with those closest to them. You are welcome to participate or note to suit your own comfort level. We are not going to single you out by asking you stand or raise your hand or wear a visitor's name tag. We will ask all attendees, whether members or visitors, to register their attendance in a notebook passed along each row of seats during the service. We would like for you to fill out the registration book so we can assist you in your visit to Mt. Auburn, however, your information and privacy are important to us and we will never sell or misuse any information you provide.

Am I going to be pressured to give money?

As our guest, you are under no obligation to give. You will feel no pressure from us. You can allow the offering basket to pass without any embarrassment or shame...really. 

What kind of music do you play?

The music in our 10:30 a.m. service is generally contemporary Christian music. We play stuff like Hillsong/Hillsong United, Chris Tomlin, Casting Crown, etc. From time to time we also weave traditional hymns in with our 10:30 a.m. worship. 

The music in our 9 a.m. service is more traditional with a choir and organ. Sometimes even hand bells and or an orchestra make an appearance. In this service we tend to play traditional hymns.
