2017 Celebration Brunch and Basket Auction

It’s Brunch Time!

On Sunday, April 23, our Missions Ministry will host our annual Celebration Brunch and Basket Auction to raise funds for Athens Habitat for Humanity. This annual event follows the Great Day Of Service where volunteers and church members serve in the community with our mission partners as well as serve within the church. 

Please consider partnering with us to expand the impact of this event by donating items/merchandise for the Basket Auction. We encourage you to sign up to eat with friends and family at the 10:45 a.m. or Noon seating on Sunday morning.  

Ways to be involved!

Work with your Sunday School Class, family, small group, or as an individual to prepare a basket.

The Basket Auction is a silent auction and these themed baskets contain various gift items. This year, we would like to offer a list of themes to avoid having multiple baskets with the same theme. Once you choose your basket, let us know and we will update the master list to reflect your decision. In addition, if you don't see a theme of your liking, please let us know and we can add it to our master list!

Attend the Missions Celebration Brunch and Basket Auction

The annual Missions Celebration Brunch is Sunday, April 23, in Hancock Hall at Athens First United Methodist Church. This is a wonderful time for our church family to come together to fellowship with one another over a delicious, homemade brunch. 

There are two seatings available: 10:45 and noon. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $5 for children 3-12, and children 2 and under eat free!
