YOUTH SERVICE FUND SILENT AUCTION DONATION BASKETS NEEDED

Annual Conference 2017 YSF fundraising was a huge success due to YOUR generosity. The Young People's Ministry's YSF Silent Basket Auction contributed $2,599.53 toward the $9,443.06 raised for YSF. You do not have to attend Annual Conference this year to support YSF. Help the Young People's Ministry meet our auction goal of $3,000 for YSF by donating a gift basket for the silent auction.
