The young people of St. Andrew United Methodist Church will hold a silent auction and bake sale at the church’s Keheley Center on Sunday, Feb. 24, after the 10:45 a.m. worship service.

Past actions staged by the St. Andrew UMC youth have featured items such as weekend cabin trips, local restaurants, a weekend in Florida, artwork, and services including painting, yard work, pest control, and car wash. Attendees have also found deals on things like books, games, household items and decorations, plants, jewelry.

The youth will provide a complimentary lunch in conjunction with the auction and bake sale.

All money raised from the silent auction supports the missions of St. Andrew UMC.

These ministries include Thanksgiving and Christmas food drives, wellness ministries, the Appalachia Service Project, the Andrew Christian School in Haiti, and ministries for men, women, children, youth and seniors.

Every summer, St. Andrew organizes a variety of mission trips specifically for its youth group as well. These trips include a Youth Praise Band Tour, Youth Celebration Team Tour, Youth-Works Mission Trip, and an Appalachia Service Project Mission Trip.
