    Students have served all over this nation and around the world this summer in missions and have brought back artifacts of their adventures for our SILENT AUCTION. Browse through the items and see if something catches your eye. Then, bid often and bid high. Bidding will end at 5:30 PM and items must be paid for and picked up by 6:30 PM.

    Each item will have a prayer card that will tell you about the people of that place and how you can specifically pray for them. You not only get a really cool item, but you will also get a constant reminder of people who need prayer and a constant reminder that God is also calling you forward. All money raised supports student missionaries serving with sendmenow missions.

The missions offering will be given to two ministries, Mission Dignity and Baptist Campus Ministry in New England. Mission Dignity ( is an organization that provides financial assistance for retired pastors and their wives or widows who are living at or below poverty level. Your gifts will be used to help provide a “Christmas bonus” to the 132 Mission Dignity recipients that reside here in Georgia. You also have the opportunity to write encouraging notes to these recipients to be delivered to them at Christmas. These note-writing opportunities can be found in the lobby.  

    The offering will be collected during the Saturday evening worship gathering, but credit card gifts (minimum $10) can be given any time Friday or Saturday in the Confluence Office (Main Building Room 203).
