The evening will begin with a burger meal (free-will donation) served from 4:45-6:30 p.m. and the auctions, both men’s and women’s, will begin at 6:45 p.m. This annual event is an important boost to the general operating budget, so “all hands on deck” to make this a successful evening for fundraising. Items for the sale may be brought to the school office. We would love to be able to advertise what will be available at the sale, so it possible, bring those donated items in as soon as possible. Thanks be to God for his overflow of blessings to each of His people. Thank you for your support, both financially and in prayer.
This is love;
Not that we loved God, but that He loved us and
sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
I John 4:10
