DEAR SUN SPOTS: Earlier this year a reader responded to an inquiry about a nondenominational church on Danville Corner Road in Auburn that was small and open to new members. I lost the information when I moved this year. You have been helpful in connecting me to an excellent writing group and a reliable, really nice computer guy named Steve. Any help you can offer is appreciated. — Marianne, Mechanic Falls.

ANSWER: From Sun Spots, April 5, 2016: In the paper this morning, I noticed that someone was looking for a nondenominational church. Danville Union Church, located at 1065 Old Danville Road in Auburn, is a very small nondenominational church. There are only 15 to 20 people there on an average Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. While we may be small in number, we are still a very active church with potluck suppers, game nights and a Community Day in June. We are truly a church family, led by Pastor Dodi Knights. We welcome visitors at any time. You would find us a very friendly church. — G. Ryder, Danville Union Church.
