Silent Auction 2021
In 2021 young people and adults from St. James will be participating in a variety of mission and outreach opportunities. We will be listening to the needs of the people whom we are serving and we will be listening to the stories of their lives and of their cultures. We will seek to understand God’s Healing Grace as we work, listen, play, and worship. Historically, St. James has been a leader in helping people who have needs that can be met by our gifts and talents. During the coming year, our youth will be learning new skills, helping other people, strengthening relationships, exploring our world, and glorifying God through worship and in our daily lives. As a result of our activities, we hope to come away with a keener sense of God at work in us both here in Wilmington and in the world.
This year Covid-19 is leading us on a new journey towards “Outreach and Mission. We will be offering a four day Online “Silent Auction” beginning on Sunday, May 2 at 6:00 am and ending on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, at 8:00 pm. We are asking you to help us by giving a donation to this Auction. Entries can be “one-of-a-kind” items, such as jewelry, original works of art, vacation homes, hunting or fishing opportunities. Gift certificates from local restaurants, entertainment opportunities, legal, medical, and automotive services, tickets to college or professional sports events, gourmet dinners, and cocktail parties are always popular items. Please USE YOUR IMAGINATION and have fun with your ideas. We will be “advertising” these items online with pictures and descriptions. The bidding will be online and all bidders will be able to see the bidding actions that are occurring. It will be a lot of fun!
Please help our 2021 Youth Ministries Outreach and Mission. We thank you in advance for your help and your support. Also, we thank you for your investment in the lives of our young people. If you do not feel that you can donate an item/service for the auction, we will be pleased to accept cash donations as well! Please have all gifts/donations at the church by April 7 so we can publish the exciting list of items & their donors.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our three bidding dates, May 2 - 5, 2021 and TELL YOUR FRIENDS to reserve these dates so they can bid on YOUR entry!
If you have any questions, please call us. Thank you!
