Variety Show and Dessert Auction

We know you sing in the shower! We know you dance in private using a hairbrush as a microphone! And we know you have a comedy routine that only your mirror has seen! Now is your chance to step into the limelight at our 7th annual VARIETY SHOW and DESSERT AUCTION.

Gather some friends or work up your own solo act. You can sing, dance, tell jokes, or do a skit. Or you can share your creativity in the kitchen by making a dessert for the auction.

Make plans now to participate in a fun evening to help raise funds to help send our kids to camp! Sign up with the church office.
