Service Auction is Coming

IMG_2905 

Sunday April 27 following worship

  Two years ago our church held this fundraising event and it was such a great success . . .we’re planning to do it again on Sunday, April 27th.   You are invited to the Wesley Hall for our 2014 All-Church Service Auction and Potluck directly after worship (approximately 10:45).  Lots of fun, lots of fellowship, and lots of money raised to support our church’s missions both here and around the world.  We will also tithe – 10% – made from the auctions will be our gift to “Imagine No Malaria” a UMC project to provide mosquito nets for individuals in sub-Sahara Africa where children die every minute from malaria.

We will also be having a Silent Auction and an Opportunity Drawing.  How can you be entered in the drawing you might ask?  Just attend worship on Sunday and you will receive a ticket to deposit in the cans.  There are movie tickets, Panera gift meals, and 5# boxes of almonds are the prizes available to win from the drawing.

Start thinking now, brainstorm, plan ahead.  What can you offer as a service to the auction?  Some favorites from before included cookie of the month, preparing your specialty meal for a group, lessons, vacation stays, driving, house cleaning, sewing, yard work, tax preparation, car maintenance, face painting, and much more.  Be creative and imagine something you can do or make or offer (for free) that others would bid on.

For more information, to offer your service, to offer to help in the many ways that will be needed contact: Joyce or Larry at umclarry@sbcglobal.net, or Mike & Kelly at kellybentz@sbcglobal.net or Jim & Gwen at bagpipemarshall@comcast.net.
