flowersMark your calendars for May 9th from 6:00 to 8:30 PM for a special evening. People’s Church Spring Celebration and Service Sale is an event for all members and friends of People’s Church. The focus of this event is celebrating spring and the completion of a successful church year together. There will be live music, wine, and childcare provided with a special dinner menu for children. For adults, we ask that those attending bring an hors d’oeuvres or hearty appetizer or a dessert item and wine or other beverage. This is more of a party than a sit-down dinner so that people can circulate, socialize, and check out the many offerings.

The planning committee has made changes to the format of our traditional Service Auction fundraiser. Instead of using an auctioneer, each donor is asked to set the price for their donated services or items. For example, a dinner will no longer be priced according to the highest bid. Rather the dinner will be offered at a set price, perhaps $25 per person for a brunch, or a higher price for a gourmet dinner for 8, or lower for a picnic cookout for 20, and each of the first people who sign up will purchase a seat at the fixed price. Donations of a single item, for example a quilt or jewelry, will be offered using a traditional silent auction format to the highest bidder. We hope this format will lead to everyone participating knowing that there will be something for everybody with many fun options to choose from that will fit a variety of budgets and preferences.

Planning committee members will be in the foyer every Sunday in April soliciting your donations and asking you to sign up for one of the set up and clean up teams. Please fill out a Donation Commitment form, as many as you care to offer, describing your donated service, and return it to Spring Celebration and Service Sale box at the table in the foyer or online to the church office when it is sent electronically.
