Learn about how you can get involved
We are called to be a part of God’s plan and design for the world. We are invited in to be an active part of what God is doing in the world. We are equipped to serve. Mt. Auburn invites you to connect with the many ways to become equipped to live out your love of the Lord through expressing God’s love, through our spiritual gifts, in service, and servant leadership in our community and across borders.
The Parish Care Ministry of Mt. Auburn brings the love of God into people’s lives by providing supportive care to those who face crises, loss, or personal dilemmas. The Parish Care Ministry also provides education on health issues facing the congregation as well as being an outreach to the community. Contact Melissa Truelove at email@example.com if you would like more information on opportunities to serve with our Parish Care team.
We are here for you. Feel free to contact any member of our staff when you need help or prayer.
Our Foundation for Missions
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal to us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:17-20)
These verses serve as the foundation to Mt Auburn UMC’s mission to “Make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” The Missions Team affirms Jesus’ call upon the church to serve as Jesus’ ambassadors, globally bearing witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ for the purpose of making disciples of all nations. To this end, the Missions’ Team supports ministries/missionaries that align with Jesus’ call to serve as his witnesses in Jerusalem (Johnson County), and in all Judea (Statewide) and Samaria (Nationally), and to the ends of the earth (Internationally).”
God has created humankind with the capacity to worship Him in song. Mt. Auburn’s worship includes musical opportunities to praise, pray to, and respond to God through participation in congregational singing, choral, and instrumental music. We invite you to participate in our worship of God through music. If you are interested in joining the choir or handbells, contact Karen Hetrick at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in joining the praise band, contact Andrew Hamilton at email@example.com.
