Auburn Site Ministries

God has given everyone natural talents, spiritual gifts and heart passions. As a church we want to help everyone find their unique combination of these and how they can use that to serve others and honor Jesus. Serving is more fun and life giving when we nail it. To help with that we offer a three-week Discovery Class to allow you to discover the unique way God made you. Below are a number of different serving opportunities.
