5:30 - 9:30 p.m.

Join us for our favorite fundraiser event, the annual SMUUCh Auction.  No matter your budget, there will be something just for you. Prizes are given throughout the evening, including a major door prize, but you must be present to win

In past years items up for bid have included tickets to premier sporting events; special cultural performances at the Kauffman, the Lied Center, and the Music Hall; B & B Package at the Southmoreland on the Plaza; a week's vacation at a modern log cabin home in Colorado; beautiful handcrafted accessories and fine art. We have fixed-price events too such as game parties, dinner parties, knitting lessons, and custom made desserts.

This year’s fundraiser auction will be held on Saturday, November 4, from about 5:30 PM until 9:30 PM.  

If you are new to the church, this is our one big fundraising event of the year, but you don’t have to be rich to participate—there are items to fit every pocketbook.  Admission is FREE for everyone and there is childcare as well.  We just ask that you bring snacks to share.

Our auction format includes the following: 

A Silent Auction – bid on items, gift baskets, and donated services 

Poster Parties – sign up to attend parties, dinners, game nights, movie nights, and other events hosted by members of the congregation. These are fixed-price events from as little as $5/person.

A Live Auction – bid competitively for items, services, and other interesting goodies 

This is THE major fundraising and social event for our church, and everyone is encouraged to participate.  You can: 

Donate or Host – an item, service, or event for the silent or live auction. DONATE HERE.

Help – it takes a village to make our auction a success—it takes YOU!   HELP HERE
