We have an Auction Website at where you can donate, browse the catalog and calendar, check your statement, and even bid online.

Our auction is an important fundraising event for the church and a great way to bring people together. Do you have a special talent, skill, or a unique item to donate? Can you host a dinner?

Here are some samples of items donated in years past:

  • Themed Dinners - Greek, German, Sicilian, West African and many more
  • Yoga class and luncheon in a beautiful natural setting
  • Cranium Caper - An evening of Fun
  • Chocolate Tasting and Delicious Desserts
  • Family Barn party with music and maypole dancing
  • Birding at Blendon
  • Sacred Circle Dancing

The February 23, 2019 auction team chair is Cathy O'Neil 267-4975.

New for 2019!


We are focusing on services, dinners, excursions, vacations, and fellowship activities. Any items which are added to the website will be considered but may be gently declined so that we may focus our efforts more on donations which build fellowship and community. So please keep the food related services and all the wonderful things that we can share with each other, but save those precious objects for the rummage sale.


We are also going to end the experiment of splitting dinner seats between the live and silent auctions - it's going to either be all seats in the live or all in the silent. Also, with fewer bid sheets, we expect you will be able to find them more easily in one room.

Bring us your gifts of energy and organization skills, and we'll reward you with camaraderie, fun, and one of the most satisfying volunteer opportunities at FirstUU!
