MIssionsfest F.A.Q.


I've never been to MissionsFest before, what should I wear?

Glory of Christ's MissionsFest is laid back and casual. You can come in jeans and your favorite plaid shirt and suspenders. Embrace the Up North!

 

Do I need to bring anything?

Only some money and your checkbook. We will provide you with food, drinks, and a great time. 


Will there be babysitting?

We will not be providing any babysitting services during the event. Please plan to make other arrangements as you consider attending MissionsFest. 


Where does the money go?

The money raised at through MissionsFest goes to support mission efforts in America and across the world. A list of the missions we support can be found here


What kinds of things should I donate?

If you make some kind of homemade good (quilts, pottery, jewelry, knitting, etc.) we would encourage you to donate these types of items. Other popular items are consumables, items that you use once, usually entertainment or food related (sports tickets, green fees, wine, baked goods, dinners, etc.). If you are still unsure of what to donate, think of something you might enjoy winning at the auction and donate it!


Do I have to use my bidding number?

Yes, this helps the auction workers work more easily. It is up to you whether or not you also include your name, but no bid will be counted without the bidder number. 


How does the silent auction work?

All of the items will be available to view at the start of the event. Attendees will write in their bidder number and bid on the bidding sheet. If there is a lot of action on one of your favorite items you can submit another, higher bid. Items will be closed in a staggered fashion. If you don't win an item you will have time to bid on others. 


How does the live auction work?

The auctioneer will describe the auction item and begin to call out dollar amounts. Simply raise your bidder number or call out until you win the item or the price gets too steep. If the auction item is a dinner with multiple seats, the highest bidder gets as many seats as he/she wants at the winning price. (E.g., If the winning bid is $100, the winner can choose to take four of the available seats for a total of $400. The bidding will then start over for the remaining seats.) 


Is there any way I can help with the auction?

We have most things under control. Thank you, though. 


But I consume a lot of sugar and caffeine, and I get bored easily. 

Oh, in that case talk to one of the auction committee members, or just email the church office. I'm sure we can find a place for you to help.
