Pie Auction a Big Success!

Over 100 home-made pies and cakes were featured in the silent and live auctions.  The highest bid received was $500 for the Decadent Devil’s Food Cake donated by the All Chocolate Kitchen, and the second highest was $450 for a huge carrot cake contributed by Tracy Barbel.

One of the highlights of the evening was the “Pie a Pastor” raffle.  Grace Jackson, a DTP student, was the “lucky” winner and got to deliver a pie-in-the-face to Jonathan Goble, Pastor of Middle School Ministries. You can check out all the fun photos from the event below.


Shayna Duncan, Coordinator of Short-Term Missions, extends a big thank you to the 60-plus students and adults who volunteered their time to make the Pie Auction such a big success.
