Discipleship at Union Church is organized within four environments:
Worship Gathering: The Sunday worship gathering is designed to be a reunion of the scattered house churches; therefore, we meet weekly to praise Jesus through song, to sit under the preaching of the Word, and to take communion together. We gather on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm in the chapel at First Pres. Opelika (900 2nd Ave, Opelika, AL 36801) with childcare provided for kids 6 and under.
Prayer Meeting: Union Church is systematically organized to be praying – with the same amount of time, energy and resources put toward prayer as the worship gathering and the scattering of the house churches. A weekly, corporate prayer meeting will be the centerpiece – the engine – of Union Church. Prayer will also be a high priority within the worship gathering, individual house churches and leadership meetings. This serves to posture ourselves in dependence and faith in the One who can accomplish more than we could ever manufacture through human effort.
House Churches: Union Church is a network of house churches, small groups of 10-25 people, strategically scattered around Auburn, Opelika and the Auburn University campus, missionally investing in neighborhoods, apartment complexes and schools in specific ways so that every person in Auburn and Opelika has a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed.
Fight Clubs: Within each house church are gender specific discipleship groups who fight against sin and fight for joy by encouraging one another to embrace depth and consistency in gospel, community and mission.
