Thanksgiving 2020

Colossians 3:17 ESV

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.


The annual Thanksgiving Auction was held this year, 2020, with on-line and in-person bids, instead of an actual in-person auction, due to COVID-19 pandemic concerns.  We thank everyone who donated items, made bids, and gave generously both for items and offering to benefit the 3 organizations listed below.  The auction officially ended yesterday, Sunday, November 29, 2020.

Please note for the ending of this year's auction:

  • Payments should be made to Salem Mennonite Church by check or cash only for the EXACT AMOUNT. This can be brought to the church or mailed in. There should be a box in the gallery to place payments in.

  • Do not make any payments to Kaufman Realty.  Your credit/debit card should not be charged.

  • Please do not pick up any items until you are notified that you have won the bid.

  • An e-mail should be sent by the Thanksgiving Committee for winning bids and those that were not won on-line due to higher bids in-person.  Winners should be notified of options of how to receive the items won from the auction.

  • If you want to give to the Thanksgiving Offering, please pay that separately and note on the check or envelope “Thanksgiving Offering”, so that it is separate from auction payments.

  • The church building should be open to make payments and pick up items THIS WEEK (December 2 - 4, 2020) Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9am to 1pm. You may also pick up items on Sunday.

Again, if you have any questions, please contact Brandon, Neal, or Colleen (The Thanksgiving Committee).

Thank you.
