Each year in November, the church auctions goods and services at a wonderful party. 

This year’s auction will be held on November 12, 2022.


We’ll start collecting donations in early fall.


You will be able to see the catalog online a few weeks before the auction.


Auction bidding for silent auction items will be done via the auction site.

How to bid

  • Visit the auction site.
  • Go to the catalog and browse items.  Items available for bidding will have a “Bid Now” button.
  • Click/tap on the Bid Now button to bid.
  • When you make your first bid, you will need to register as a bidder.  Enter your name, email address, phone number, and address (optional) to register as a bidder.  You will get a confirmation email to confirm your account.
  • Bid on as many items as you would like.
  • Use the “Show me” filter to see items you have bid on, items you have been outbid on, items you have won, and items by any category.
  • When the auction closes, go to your “My Account” page to see which items you have won.
    • Pay directly on that page via credit card (or indicate that you will pay by check)
    • Enter a checkout note to declare if you prefer to arrange with the seller for pick up or if you’d prefer to pick your items up at UUCPA
    • If you pay via check, please mail your check to UUCPA c/o Auction

Bidding does require you to register your email address with our auction service provider, Auctria.  Please contact auction@uucpa.org if you need help.


Yes, we still need volunteers. And no, you don’t have to sit at a table on the quad. Please contact auction@uucpa.org if you have ideas or even enthusiasm and a few hours to share with us.
