The purpose of our Women's Ministry is to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the women at the Auburn City Seventh-day Adventist church and our surrounding community. Our ministry is designed to encourage women, at any stage of their lives, to grow in their faith in Christ, to develop and strengthen intimate friendships with other women, to provide opportunities for fellowship, to recognize that we are diverse and talented women within the church, and to provide opportunities to serve and reach our neighbors and community for Christ.
Kids for Christ (KFC) is an eccentric group of youth who are on a search for God. We are a group who talks about our week, prays, and has in-depth Bible studies. We also plan fun and service activities outside of Sabbath School. Our leaders support our youthfulness and listen to our ideas. We are an active group that supports and loves each other. Some of the activities we have done are: plan the worship service, preach, sing, random acts of kindness, youth parties, etc. This group is for high school-age students.
The Adventurer Club is open to all families of children in grades 1-4 to develop a Christ-like character, to experience the joy and satisfaction of doing things well, to express their love for Jesus in a natural way, to learn good sportsmanship and strengthen their ability to get along with others; to discover their God-given abilities and to know how to use them to benefit self and serve others, to improve their understanding of what makes families strong.

Adventist Community Services serves basically the communities of Algona, Auburn, and Pacific; yet we do not turn anyone away that is in need. The services include clothing, bedding, small household items, food, and assistance with utilities and rent when the money is available. We are a volunteer organization and often need more people to assist us. We also accommodate as a community services organization. We are working from a building at the back of the church parking lot, and we are open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our telephone number is (253)833-3222. Other days you may call the church at (253)833-2560, and your message will be passed on. We do not discriminate; anyone in need is welcome.

Our class is focused on personal security and growth in the Christian walk. We endeavor to spend the few minutes we have learning more of God’s loving purpose for our redemption in every quarter’s prepared scripture study guide. Because we are in the sanctuary rather than a circle, of necessity I present more of a teacher-student format, to enable all to hear what is said.
We focus on learning what He is trying to tell us personally in each Bible lesson, so that each member is equipped to face the challenges and experiences that will be ours during the week ahead. Understanding from His Holy Word the salvation He has provided, at such incomprehensible cost to Himself, is the goal for each member of our class. This is the foundation and basis for our loving response of faith and acceptance of His promises for each of us personally. We are encouraged and helped on our journey by the experiences, favorable and unfavorable, of each of our class members. Friendships are encouraged as we share the things close to our hearts. Anyone who comes should expect to be loved and accepted.

My desire for each class member and visitor is that they will learn to look at scripture within a wider scope. I encourage everyone to "think-outside-the-box" when discussing any topic. Bring your Bible and read for yourself what God has to say about any current topic. I try to present a positive outlook on scripture and how it applies to our everyday lives. Whether we are studying Paul's letters to the ancient churches, Old Testament heroes, or current world events, we are looking for "How-to" conclusions and "Thus saith the Lord" in our study.
If you come and visit my class, be prepared to participate. I love a good, healthy discussion, and playing devil's advocate is my specialty! It's a friendly atmosphere where we laugh and learn together. His Word gives us hope, trust, and comfort for these last days. Come and let's learn together!

This Bible study class is in a small group setting. The goal of this study is to bring out in scripture, life applications for us today. It is my hope that we can share with one another the life experiences that show how God is leading in our lives -- and to build one another up in the Lord. This Bible study class is located at the end of the hallway leading to the children's Sabbath School divisions in order to encourage parents to attend. You are welcome to join us on this journey.
-- Jason Watson, facilitator/teacher
You may describe my class as one where each participant is allowed and encouraged to share his or her opinion about the topic of the week. This is purely a discussion group, based upon the Sabbath school lesson guide. This class not only studies together, but class members also share prayer requests, praying for each other and rejoicing in answered prayer.
-- Ken Lizzi, facilitator/teacher
Our Sabbath school is an open class in which everyone is encouraged to participate in the currant weekly lesson. Our goal is to apply the things we have learned from the lesson in a way that will help us to draw closer to God and to develop a personal relationship with Him.

We have an excellent bunch of ladies in Kindergarten! We minister to our church's “kidlets” who are usually ages 4-6. Kindergarten is so much fun! We are currently reading stories about Samuel and his call from God. We sing with the Primary kids, and then we have Bible stories, snacks, crafts, and games.
This class is for first, second and third graders. These children are inspired by the dedicated adults who lead in music, tell stories and give instruction with the use of scripture – all of which engages the children in meaningful experiences about Jesus’ love for them.
This class is for fourth, fifth and sixth graders. Exciting music, quizzes and activities engage these young people in Bible based experiences that give meaning to the difficult challenges of growing up in today's world.
