Newsfall auction 870x870

Dear CUCC family –

You’ve likely heard that our annual auction is this Saturday, October 7 from 6-9pm.

The Stewardship Ministry invites you to make plans to attend. The event will kick off our pledge season this fall. Join our auctioneers and many volunteers in having fun together while we bid on items in a Silent Auction and Live Auction setting. You can take home some items while others are projects or events that will go on your calendar in days months to come. In addition, we have a Cash & Carry section. We have built the auction with a full menu of donated offerings with many different price points. Our goal has been to make it easy for each of us to participate in our own way in the giving and sharing we all enjoy as we care for our church home throughout the year.

Thanks for being a part of the conversation and for prayerfully considering how you support our church home.

Thanks for all you do!

Here’s what to expect the night of the auction:

  • $5 at the door to get a bidder number on a paddle. Use this number in both the Silent Auction and the Live Auction.
  • No RSVP is necessary. If you’re bringing your kids to be with Pastor Santi’s crew, however, please let her know. We’ll also have childcare workers in the nursery for the littlest ones.
  • Hors d’oeuvres and drinks provided for no charge (Thanks to many volunteers!)
  • Come ready bid on things that catch your eye. See list attached to this email. (This is the first time we’ve previewed a list – thanks Jeff Cole!)
  • An auction catalog of Live Auction items will be handed out Saturday night. Other items will be in the Silent Auction where you place your bid on a sheet of paper.
  • Cash & Carry items are not in the auction and can be paid for with cash on the spot.
  • Auctioneers Jeff Langenderfer and Greg Flynn will conduct the live auction and entertain us! (Thanks auctioneers!)
  • Our system sends you an email by the end of the auction with your total. You can pay on Saturday night through our online Donate button, with a check or with a credit card. (Thanks Tim Jensen!)

If you donated an item that is to be taken home from the auction by the winning bidder, please bring it to church before the auction begins. Drop off in the library, make plans with Susan Atkinson to receive this week, or just arrive a bit before 6pm on Sat. Thanks!

Let’s have fun as we pitch in to build, and keep up, and expand and enjoy a house where love can grow— together.
