Outreach Auction

(Formerly called the Basket Auction)

Date: November 10,2018

Time: 9:00 - 11:00 am


Everything needs an update now and then and the Basket Auction was no exception. We changed the name to reflect the fact that all proceeds are donated to local missions; this is not a fundraiser for our church.


But that's not the only change you'll notice! Here are some of the other changes for this year:

  • This year there will be the basket auction and a silent auction for some really special items.
  • You'll have the ability to use your credit card for your purchases.
  • More treats in the cafe.


We think this year's auction promises even more great fun so come and bring your friends!

Holy Communion

All God's people are invited and welcome at our table.

We come as insiders and outsiders gathered as one community.

We come as families and strangers, neighbors and welcome guests.

We are young and old, weak and strong, stranger and friend.

We are wise and naive, at peace, and filled with trepidation.

We are with dear ones and with those living lives of isolation.

We are married, single, gay, straight and widowed.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey,

you are welcome here at Christ's table.

We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month.
