Cake Auction for Mission Trip 2014     

On Mother’s Day, May 11, 2014, immediately following the

Worship Service, our super MC, Pastor Lou Kilgore, will auction off all cakes baked for the benefit of the Mission Team 2014. Go for it and decorate, or if you don’t feel up to it, just bake a delicious cake to be auctioned off. There will be bidding, there will be fun, there will be cake! Each one must have the name of the baker on an attached tag, as well as the kind of cake it is.

You need not put the recipe on the tag. All proceeds will be used to send our Mission Team to Maine this end of June and into July to help repair homes for those who can no longer manage for themselves. They will join with us when they come home and tell us all of their rewarding experiences. Please don’t forget May 11th!
