Auction to support mission work, may offer up decorating ideas

Sun News correspondentOctober 31, 2012 

Trinity United Methodist Church is known for its wide range of mission work activities and its spirit of serving others in the Warner Robins area.

Now, Trinity Methodist is holding a mission fundraiser that will be about serving others, as well as serving attendees dinner.

The evening begins with a silent auction at 5 p.m. Nov. 8.

The silent auction will be followed by a steak and chicken dinner provided by Outback Steakhouse and homemade desserts provided by Trinity Methodist members.

After dinner, a live auction will be held. Auction items will range from homemade cakes to paintings.

Event organizers have been meeting since May. One big goal has been to have auction items for the both the silent and live auctions that will appeal to a wide variety of people.

One of the highlights of the Taste of Trinity evening is the decorated tables. Trinity members will decorate the table in different themes that highlight their imaginations. Tables will range from Christmas themes to themes such as bridal or fall.

Carolyn Schomer, chairwoman of the Taste of Trinity, said that along with supporting many ministries, the event is a great way to get ideas for holiday decorating.

“Some people show off their best china,” Schomer said. “While others might use paper plates. It depends on their theme and their own creativity.”

The Taste of Trinity is every other year, and money raised supports a variety of ministries such as the church’s Jamaican and Appalachian mission trips, Cherished Children Day Care, prison ministries and their partnership with Miller Elementary School.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling Debbie Crenshaw at 747-6457 or Carolyn Schomer at 922-2965.
