2019 Celebration Brunch and Basket Auction

It’s Brunch Time!

 Register for the Brunch 

On Sunday, March 24, our Missions Ministry will host our annual Celebration Brunch and Basket Auction!  This year, we will be celebrating together at the brunch as a FREE event. All proceeds from the Basket Auction will go to support families and individuals in need in our community. This annual event will follow our Spring Service Day 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.

Although this is a free event, we encourage you to register online so we know you are coming! You can 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!

There are two seatings available: 10:45 and noon. This is a FREE event, and we would love to have you and your family join us as we celebrate together!
