This link will take you to our auction and allow you to view all of the wonderful items that have been donated. In order to bid, you will need a 32auctions account. Don’t have one yet?

The Community Auction is about making connections with other UU’s while supporting our church and outreach. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing recommendations, we are getting creative this year! In lieu of using our building, we will be offering up our ZOOM accounts to members to schedule virtual events, and our parking lot to schedule “drive in” events. What can you donate?!
Categories this year include: Getaways and Cabins, Outdoor Adventures, Lessons and How-to’s, Services and Honey-do’s, Travelogues, Home Cooked (meals & desserts), Socially Distanced Meals and Parties, Handmade Items, Community Events (if/when available), Gift Certificates, and More!
The Community Auction is our church’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It has a twofold purpose: to foster interpersonal connections between members and friends of our church, and to bring in much needed revenue to help fund our valuable in-house programs as well as make funds available for community outreach and action. All proceeds go into the UUCS General Fund.
Now comes the fun part, browse through all the wonderful items that have been donated to the auction this year. From vacation getaways, to gift certificates, amazing meals and treats, one of a kind handmade gifts and treasures, and much, much more. Find something you love? Bid away and see what you win! Thank you for participating in the UUCS Auction in 2020, this year is different!
Donors receive a list of who has signed up for their event and bid winners receive an itemized list of everything they have signed up for along with the total amount owed to UUCS.
