Auxiliaries

Church auxiliaries are called the "church helpers" or "church supporters." It is the responsibility of each auxiliary to provide some type of financial support for the Church Program during the conference year. Each group must select a date on the church calendar for its regular meetings as well as its planned activities in support of the Church.
We encourage you to select an organization and become active in your local Church. The more active you are, the more you feel a part of the Church. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Church office at 919.832.2709.
