Paddles! Before the auction, please request a paddle number (if you want to bid) from Linda Knight, Lindyj64@gmail.com. A one time paddle fee of $5 will be charged. While obtaining a paddle number early will really help us out, you may request a paddle number at the auction.

Our auction is an important fundraising event for the church and we encourage every member to participate by donating, bidding, or both! This year’s silent auction will focus on our most popular donations:
