Youth Missions Auction - March 4th

Our 12th annual Youth Missions Auction is coming up quickly! Our theme this year is "Red Carpet" - we hope that you can join us for this wonderful evening of food, fellowship and bidding to support our mission projects. The auction this year is Saturday, March 4th - Doors open at 5:30pm and dinner is served at 6:15pm. The silent auction will continue throughout dinner and the live auction, bidding will conclude 15 minutes after the live auction ends. This is our one fundraiser for these wonderful trips that engage both our youth and adults in service to our community, region and world. In 2017, we will be taking teams to the Dominican Republic and the Shenandoah Valley, as well as a local project here in Prince William County. For more information on the auction, our trips, or to purchase tickets, contact Bert Miller, our youth director, by email ( or by phone at 703.754.4511 - We hope you can join us!
