Dec 10 Auction Update

From: Michelle Place
Sent: Thursday, December 1, 2011 5:24 PM

Dear Class,

We have had a few more forms for auction items turned in and have heard several rumblings of potential items. Anything you could send me Friday would be great so that I could organize them prior to leaving town for 8 days. After Friday, you will need to contact Pam Sherman.

Here is what we have so far:

Live Auction Items:
A Chili & Blues Party,
Super Bowl Party, Witching for Unmarked Graves in the Perryman Cemetery followed by rooftop beverages,
another Gourmet Dinner for 24 people,
Dinner for 4 at Juniper’s,
an Outdoor Movie Night,
A week in a Chicago apartment

Silent Auction Items:
2 handmade somethings from Beverly North, 1 Christmas quilt & 1 other quilt, 12 months of PC maintenance, 2 tickets to Fiddler on the Roof, a dog bed & toys. Please bring your silent auction items the night of the event but having the form ahead of time would be helpful.

If you are unable to attend the party on Saturday, Dec 10, consider finding someone to bid for you. Also, cash contributions are certainly accepted. Invoices will be produced and distributed to bidders.

Again, Friday is my deadline and after that, any auction forms need to go to Pam Sherman. I’ll be thinking of the party and praying for its success while I am out of town. Remember that all proceeds go to missions inside the church and in our community.

Thanks,
Michelle Place

Maranatha Auction

Our Annual Christmas Party and auction are quickly approaching.   If you have put this creative and organizational task off, please take some time to move it up on your to do list.  Kirk and I leave town on Saturday and will be gone all the week before the auction.  If I could get this organized before I leave, my committee members would be less stressed about their own to do lists.  Use these links for the auction form – in PDF and in Microsoft Word.
Please email to mplacetul(at)sbcglobal.net.

We will auction all parties or gatherings in the live auction and “things” will be silent.

So far we have the following items to auction:

1.        Super Bowl Party in February
2.       Witching for Unmarked Graves at the Perryman Cemetery followed by beverages & appetizers on El Guapo’s rooftop in April
3.       Chili & Blues party

Silent Auction – I didn’t look closely at the items
1.        2 handmade items by Beverly North
2.       Something rolled up like a print or poster

Thanks,
Michelle Place, Lynn Russell, Pam Sherman & Nancy Morgan

Maranatha, May 9, 2010

“May you run and not be weary. May your heart be filled with song. And may the love of God
continue to give you hope and keep you strong.”

This portion of the choral response above, now song by us all at the end of the Church’s service, could be describing mothers, running and not appearing to ever be weary, hearts filled with song, and always seeming to be hopeful and strong! Yesterday, Sunday, those who were able to attend class at Maranatha were reminded of all these characteristics when we heard from four mothers, Lynn Russell, Pam Sherman, Debbie Jacoby, and Meredith Davison, who spoke about being mothers and daughters. It was a loving, moving devotion from each presenter!

We celebrated two birthdays, Paula Scott (5/11) and Jim Embrey (5/13). Happy Birthday! No anniversaries were noted for this week.

Our greeters and providers of refreshments were Gary and Patti Smith and Rex and Allene Donley. It was a lovely table adorned with red roses and white carnations on a red tablecloth, and great snacks, both healthy and guilt-ridden. Our thanks to each of you for keeping the calories coming!

Visitors this Sunday were Maranatha alums, Phil and Cindy Allbritten, who now reside in Texas.

Our announcements included appreciation for the talents of Susan Panciera; Susan played a lively rendition of “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” on the clarinet at Sunday’s main services. Also, we heard joys expressed from proud parents, the Carpenters and Jacobys, for the graduation of daughters who will now be pursuing advanced degrees. Congratulations to you and others in our class who will also be sharing in such a joy as schools hold their commencements.

Angie Dale led us in a special Mother’s Day prayer that was a devotional in itself; it was lovely and meaningful!

Next week, we will welcome Professor Susanna Southard, Phillips Theological Seminary, who will teach us for two successive Sundays. Bring friends and family! If we haven’t seen you for a while, you have been missed! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Have a great week!

Richard Wansley and Meredith Davison
Presidents
