Charlotte Hosts Good Works Fund-raiser Auction

Following services and a picnic potluck on Jan. 27, 2007, brethren from several congregations gathered at the China Grove Community Center for a Good Works auction, hosted by the Charlotte, North Carolina, congregation. Items donated by Church members from Charlotte, Asheboro and Raleigh included handmade, crocheted, and hand-painted donations; new and gently used items; and services to be performed.

The children participated by collecting pennies in the weeks prior to the event. Some children did chores, while others thought of innovative ways to earn them. One creative child sold his loose tooth.

Young adults served along with auctioneer Antoine Smith, who led the lively bidding.

Everyone enjoyed the evening and came away happy with their treasures. The total raised by the auction was $4,133, which provided funding for two projects in Ochuna Nyahera and Kosele, Kenya, and contributed to the Rwandan dental project. All agreed that our goal of fulfilling Galatians 6:9-10 Galatians 6:9-10 [9] And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. [10] As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good to all men, especially to them who are of the household of faith.
