Want to have fun, do good, eat well, enjoy great music, and score some fantastic merchandise? Mark your calendars for Sunday afternoon, April 14! That's when St. Andrew United Methodist Church will host its annual Auction in Support of Youth.
The auction supports youth mission trips and the youth choir tour. This year, 150 people (youth and adult leaders) will be going on five mission trips. During Spring Break, they built a kitchen facility at the Forest Home School in Belize. This summer, they will work in a clinic in Guatemala, do home repair on the Tahlequeh Reservation in Oklahoma and perform fire recovery work in Divide, CO. Both middle schoolers and high schoolers are included. Thirty members of the Holy Pretzel youth choir will travel to Nashville, TN, stopping along the way to perform at correctional facilities, retirement homes, and soup kitchens.
Silent auction items will be available to bid on from 2:00 – 4:30, and the live auction starts at 4:30. Following the live auction, a celebratory dinner will be served.
Check out the silent auction for perennial favorites, like restaurant gift cards, jewelry, home décor, and baskets. Returning again this year is the “Super Silent” category, with higher value items.
In the live auction this year, there will be getaways to Colorado condos, a clambake for 6, catering for a party, and art lessons from St. Andrew's Senior Pastor, Gary Shockley. Terry Wiedeman, auctioneer extraordinaire, will be in charge of the live auction, ably assisted by St. Andrew's Assistant Youth Director, Kip Wallen.
When the live auction ends, you can stay and enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by the St. Andrew Grill Team and youth directed by Rick Stang. In keeping with the theme, the menu will take you directly to the State Fair Midway:
State Fair Steak Bites
Midway Mac & Cheese
Baked Potato Bar
Lemonade and Iced Tea
Blue Ribbon Desserts by St. Andrew bakers
While you enjoy dinner, the Holy Pretzels will entertain you with musical selections prepared for the tour.
