Senior Sunday

May 21 3:00 pm  |  Auburn United Methodist Church Sanctuary

137 South Gay Street, Auburn, AL, USA

Graduation Day is approaching fast, and we want to share with you information about Auburn UMC’s Senior Recognition Day. We will have a special service for our seniors and their families on Sunday, May 21 at 3pm in our Sanctuary.

We would like seniors to meet in the Welcome Center at 2:30pm to sign photo mats for the framed group photo. Then, at 2:45pm, seniors will walk to the front steps of the Sanctuary on Magnolia Ave. and we will take a group photo of our seniors in their caps and gowns. To begin the service, seniors will walk into the church in their caps and gowns as a group and sit together in the front pews. All family members will sit in the sanctuary in any pew not designated for our seniors. Please invite as many family and friends as you would like.

After the service, we will walk to Hamill Court just down the hall from the Sanctuary where we will have a reception with desserts and drinks. This will also be time for more photo opportunities, and any final signing of photo mats for the group photo, as well as receiving the group photo, mat, and frame. There will be no cost for this event, but we do need to know how many people to expect. Please register for Senior Recognition Day HERE. The last day to make a reservation for this event will be Monday, May 8.

Each year, one of the high points of Senior Recognition Day is a video featuring each of our seniors, which will be shown at the service. A shortened video will also be shown at our Sunday morning sanctuary services. In order to make this video, we need pictures of your senior that highlight events over their lifetime. It would be great to get pictures from their early years and elementary school, as well as Jr. High and High School. We would like seven (7) pictures per senior, including their senior portrait. After you have registered for this event, you will receive a confirmation email. In the email will be a Dropbox link to upload your senior’s photos. When you go to the link, just follow the prompt and upload your senior’s photos. It will automatically generate a name for the file. (A Dropbox account is not required.) All photos should be uploaded by the end of the day on May 8.

In an effort to ensure that all of Auburn UMC’s seniors are included in these events, we are sending this information not only to our members, but to students and their families who have been associated with our church. If your family is connected to another congregation and you’d prefer that your student not be listed in the Auburn UMC bulletin as part of Auburn UMC’s Class of 2023, please contact us. Of course, if you have any questions, please let Marc, Lindsey, or Jill know. We look forward to sharing this special event with you!
