InnerLight Ministries, Phil and Rhonda Foley
Phil and Rhonda Foley, the founders of InnerLight Ministries, have been involved in a wide variety of missionary work. They have brought Bibles into China, established an orphanage in Myanmar, and provided food for the hungry throughout south-east Asia. They have recently taken on leadership of a church camp in Frankfort, Indian. Mt. Auburn Christian Church has partnered with InnerLight Ministries for more than 20 years. We have sponsored missionaries, purchased food and Bibles for those who need them, and provided a van for Phil and Rhonda so they could visit their sponsor church while they are in the States. Phil and Rhonda will be at Mt. Auburn on October 6, 2019. During the Sunday school hour they will provide information about their current missionary work. During the church service they will bring the message and lead the congregation in worship.
Good News Club
Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living. The Good News Club meets after school on Tuesdays for first through sixth graders at Southwester Elementary school. In the Fall of 2018 the Good News Club will meet from September 4 through October 9. Students who wish to attend must have their parents sign the permission slip that is sent home with the school announcements. Additional permission slips are available through the school office. The Good News Club is operated by Christians from several churches in the Southwestern school district. Adults who would like to help with the Good News Club can contact Pastor Brian Scott at 317-729-5391.
The Spartan Cupboard is a pantry located at Southwestern Jr. and Sr. High School. We have partnered with Gleaners to address the hunger issues with students, their families and our community. Our pantry is open on the first and third Wednesday of each month. The pantry is also available to students throughout the school day.
Hilltop Christian Camp
The primary purpose and focus of Hilltop Christian Camp is to provide a secluded and unique setting where every young person or adult can have a great time while encountering the presence of the Living God through play, Bible study, fellowship, and worship. Hilltop Christian Camp was established in 1946 by the East Columbus Christian Church of Columbus, Indiana. The land, in beautiful Brown County upon which Hilltop is located, was donated to the church by Walker & Freeman Ping for the sole purpose of establishing a Christian service camp for the area young people. In addition to having a place for Christian fun and recreation, the camp would be a place to learn more about Christ and to be challenged to serve Him in various Christian vocations.
Now owned and operated by a corporation of Christian Church/Churches of Christ in the South Central Indiana area, that heritage is being carried on through the motto, “Where Christ and a great time go together.”
The Mt. Auburn Christian Church supports Hilltop Camp directly, as well as providing scholarships for students who desire to attend. We provide a 50% scholarship for all students in our church who attend Hilltop. We have additional scholarship for students who need it. We do not want anyone to miss out because of finances. Speak with the pastor or one of the elders if you need an additional scholarship.

Hearing and Receiving Christ, Mark and Helen Begarly.
HRC is a Christ-centered ministry that strives to give empowerment and ownership to the people of Zimbabwe so they may develop vision and create ministries that spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For each ministry to reach its true potential Nationals are trained and given ownership of the ministries, as we believe Nationals are better equipped to reach their own people than foreigners. God can then give them vision for their country. We believe the Bible is inspired words of God. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayers, and that He saves from sin and death all who comes to Him through Jesus Christ. We confess Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of the living God, as our Lord and Savior. We are obedient to His command to be baptized for the forgiveness of sin and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. We believe all of this because Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and ascension into heaven trust in His promise to in live eternal glory with God
Clarity (Pregnancy Crisis Center)
At Clarity we believe in possibilities. We look at our communities and see people full of potential; individuals whose life paths abound with possibilities. To some those possibilities may seem out of reach. Others have no frame of reference to help them recognize the true potential for their lives. It is easy to get so caught up in the midst of difficult circumstances, and to get so focused on the “what is” that we forget about the “what could be”. Sometimes we just need someone to come alongside u whose eyes aren’t clouded by the fog of the current situation, someone who can bring clarity and help us see the possibilities, someone who can help us find our way back to a path that leads to a desirable destination. As we serve our communities that is our approach. We com alongside people and help them see all their options so they can choose the best path. Sometimes they are young people at the trailhead of life simply deciding what paths they want to explore. They can see all their options and the possibilities, they just need a little guidance tin choosing their path. Other times we see people who have chosen a path and are now second guessing their decision. They’ve lost hope, lost sight of what could be, and are letting their current situation define and limit them. At Clarity, we’ve each experienced times like this, times when we didn’t know which path to choose, or times when we got caught up in our circumstances and began to let them determine our path. However, thorough our own personal experience, we’ve discovered that there is hope. With a little help, we’re able to lift our eyes and look beyond our current situation, seeing the possibilities ahead and being reassured that we can choose a better path, no matter where we are on the journey.
