SSBC Women's Ministry

Please check us out on Facebook!

Tuesday, December 4  |  6:30pm  |  201 Mesquite Event Center

Please join us for our Women's Christmas Event - a dinner and silent auction benefiting the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. We will be coming together to have fellowship for a good cause! Donations of homemade goods, crafts, goodie baskets, services, etc. are provided for a silent auction. All proceeds raised will go directly to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, which supports foreign mission work of the International Mission Board.

This is a fun time of food & friendship as we focus on the true meaning of Christmas - the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and how that message is going forth to the end of the earth through missionary efforts.

Tickets will be available now through December 2nd. (Price goes up $2 on November 23.) You can purchase them after the worship service in the nursery check-in area. You can also click HERE to purchase a ticket.

Ways you can help:

  • RSVP by purchasing a ticket
  • Invite a friend to come with you
  • Donate an item(s) for the silent auction
  • Volunteer to decorate a table with a centerpiece & 8 place settings of nice dishes

More detailed information can be found HERE. Contact Audrey Prater or Kelsey Walker if you have any questions!
