auuf-400-sanctuary

How to find us (physically). The AUUF building is on Thach Avenue, roughly midway between the Auburn Public Library and Auburn University’s Ralph Brown Draughon Library. Our historic white church building, which once housed the Ebenezer Baptist congregation, is on the corner of Thach and a street whose name changes depending on which way you face. To the north, the cross-street is called Debardeleben Street; to the south, it’s Auburn Drive.

Our building is accessible to people of people of all ages, abilities, and mobilities. Learn about the accessibility of our building below at “Entrances.”

Office Hours

The congregation’s office has limited hours due to the size of our congregation. Contact our office at 334-826-0595.

Entrances

During the week, we use the entrance on the east side of the building with the ramp that is on Auburn Drive, this is also the ramp for wheelchair access. It will enter through the kitchen area. Our Main Entrance is on the north-west corner under the steeple facing Thach Ave, there are several steps and the door opens inward. When events are held in the Sanctuary (for worship, weddings, memorials, and more), we also open the Main Entrance.

Parking

You can park your car on Debardeleben (please try not to block our neighbors’ driveways!), or you can turn down Auburn Drive and there’s our rustic parking lot to the right.

Directions

Our Google Maps link offers you door-to-door directions for driving, walking, or biking.

Public Transit

Unfortunately, the City of Auburn does not have regular public transit.

Accessibility

We welcome and affirm people of all abilities. We have taken the following steps to assure that no one is excluded for full participation in the life of our church.

Mobility

Our sanctuary and  Busch Center are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility.

Hearing

We have wire loop technology connected to our PA system. During all church meeting and workshops, anyone wishing to speak from the audience is strongly encouraged to use the portable microphones so those who are hard of hearing are not excluded.

Pastoral Care

We provide pastoral care to all members regardless of ability. To build the beloved community, the volunteers on the care team receive special training to assist those who may feel unwelcome, patronized or marginalized because of their disability. They may not be able to fully remedy every situation, but they can provide a compassionate ear and a willingness to enlist the help of others. If you have a hidden disability that you think it’s important for someone to know, please contact a member of the pastoral care team or contact the minister to share your information in confidence.

Service Animals

We have grassy areas where service animals may relieve themselves. If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact the church office to seek further information.
