The 2019 Community Church Silent Auction is just around the corner! Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 28! The past two years, your generous donations have enabled us to raise over $5,000! With those funds, HERO Central has been able to complete painting projects, increase the family activities budget, purchase new computers and ongoing, needed supplies. This year, proceeds will purchase a new curriculum for HERO Central, wood chips for the playground and gardening supplies for the HERO Central garden plot. Your kindness and generosity will allow HERO Central to continue to be a fantastic, safe place for kids to learn and grow in their walk with Jesus. If you are willing to donate an auction item or service, contact Kim Patterson.  Please only donate items that are new and in good condition. All donations should be delivered to the church office by April 14.
