Morris Gears Up for Auction, Bid for a Cause

Earlier this morning, Beth Morris and her granddaughter, Boston, began working to prepare items for the Lottie Moon Christmas Auction. The fundraising event, facilitated by Hillcrest, takes place on Sunday, December 4. The meal portion of the event will begin at 5 pm, and the auction itself will begin at 6 pm. The auction will take place in Hillcrest’s church fellowship hall.
Morris, the coordinator for this event, says the International Mission Board (IMB) is Hillcrest’s way of sending missionaries all around the world to share the good news of Jesus. Morris says Boston helped her grandmother all morning with baking for a cause, and they had a blast! Some items the two made up together were: pumpkin bread, gingersnap cookies, chocolate covered peanuts, meringue pies, no-bake cookies, banana bread and more.
Morris also thought it could be a really great idea to make hand-crafted items like Christmas decorations to auction off at Sunday’s event. 
“The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering” Morris says, “is one way that we financially support those missionaries sent out by the IMB. We encourage you to consider making handmade craft items, homemade jarred food items, baked goods, and more. These items will be auctioned off to the crowd at 6 pm. With that being said, this fundraiser can be a lot of fun, so be sure to stick around for the auction portion of the fundraiser, after you enjoy the meal at 5 pm.”
You may bring donated items early and leave at the Connect Desk in the Hillcrest lobby, the church office, or you may simply bring the items with you when you arrive at the event on December 4. 
The meal provided this year will be taco soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.
We invite you to join in on the fun as we come together to raise money for our foreign missionaries! I hope to see you there.
