Cash Matched Donation

You say you can’t make it in person to the church the evening of February 10? Well, don’t let that stop you from helping out.
One of our members has offered the opportunity for you to donate an amount of cash and have it matched 100% up to $1,000. It’s that simple. You don’t have to pay now as we will invoice you after a week or more, either at Sunday Services Coffee Hour or we will contact you and arrange to receive your kind donation.
All you have to do is let us know who you are and how much you are donating by completing the online form: CASH MATCHED DONATION.

Service Auction Marketplace: A Reverse Service Auction

This year you have the opportunity to submit requests to the Service Marketplace. Is there a technical service, home repair, or garden project you’ve been wishing for? Explain your project on the Service Request Form, and list the price you’re willing to pay the church for someone with the time and skill to grant your wish.

Here’s how it works:

  • Have a project, task you need assistance completing?
  • Can it be clearly defined, with a start and finish point?
  • Can a volunteer successfully fulfill your need?
  • Name your request.
  • Determine how much you are willing to pay the Church for that service. Your request will be added to the Marketplace Board.
  • A willing church member(s) can contact you and arrange to fill your service need.
  • You will pay the church for the service when you settle your Auction tab.

There are three ways to request a service:

1. Complete the online form: MARKETPLACE.
2. Download and print the PDF version HERE, fill it out then mail it to the church. You can also scan or take a picture of your completed form and email it to serviceauction@communityuuchurch.org.
3. Fill out the printed version of the form you will find in the church foyer and drop it in the church office.

Don’t be late!

Save the date! Mark Saturday, February 10th, in red on your calendars!! All the action happens in the Sanctuary beginning at 6:00pm.
