Youth Auction – February 11!


The Senior High youth are gearing up for the National Youth Gathering in Houston this coming summer. As

their church family, we want to make sure that every youth who is going is able to afford this transformational journey and experience! The youth will be hosting a “Youth Auction” on Sunday, February 11 from 11:15 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m. at First! This fun filled afternoon will include a chili cook off along with live and silent auctions items. Lunch will feature tasty southern famous dishes to go with the Texas Theme of the National Youth Gathering.


      This is where you come in! What can you offer to auction for this great cause? Do you have a service you can provide? Do a nice eye-catching item to auction? Could you bake a dessert a month for the summer for an auction winner? Do you craft or build? Perhaps a gift basket for a family fun night? Or maybe you have a cottage or vacation property to share? Our auction will be a success with your help! Sign up in the Welcome Center or contact Haylee Gustafson at 944- 3196 ( if you have items to share.
