Welcome!  Our auction is an important fundraising event for the church (and always a fun party), but it is also a great way to bring people together. Do you have a special talent or skill or a unique item to donate? Can you host a dinner? Does this sound like a fun project to be involved in? Then you've come to the right place!

With the auction only 23 days away, NOW is the time to think about what you can donate! Deadline for donations to get into the printed catalog is March 29th.

If you aren't sure what to offer, browse the catalog for previous years as well as this year to see what others have put in.

You can bring your donated auction items to the church on Friday, April 17 between 11:AM and 2:00PM or on auction day between 10:00AM and 12:00 NOON
