Each year in November, the church auctions goods and services at a wonderful party.  Here is what the All-Church Auction looked like in 2020. We raised over $18,000 and even better – built a strong sharing community in the process.

This year’s auction online silent auction starts November 8, 2021 and ends on November 13. There is also a live auction via Zoom on November 13th, 2021 at 6 pm.

It’s not too late to donate items for the auction. Please use the form on the auction site: charityauction.bid/uucpa2021auction or send an email to auction@uucpa.org.
