The OUTREACH COMMITTEE – (Mission, Discipleship and Evangelism – MDE) has a huge challenge this year. Our Annual fund raising auction and picnic will not be held this year. COVID has also resulted in an increase in requests for support and new challenges on how to reach those in need. In response, we will host our first ever ONLINE SILENT AUCTION and paddle raise called an AUCTION OF FAITH.
It is an Auction of Faith because we will need:
FAITH that generous people and businesses will donate items, their time and talents
FAITH that people will bid and buy items and also tell their neighbors and friends to join in
FAITH that people will still bid although some items can’t be used until A/C (After Covid)
FAITH that we will reach our goal of $20,000 to cover holiday giving this year and outreach for 2021.
Please begin to think about what you would be able to donate to this auction and what businesses you might contact for donations or sponsorship.
