The Lord’s Acre Auction and Sale has been a community tradition since 1949, always happening on the Saturday after the Columbus Day holiday. It has grown in size and scale over the years, and is now one of the largest annual single-day events in northern Columbia County. People come from far and wide to enjoy the fresh air and sample some of our amazing homemade food, and of course snap up some bargains. One of the most enjoyable things about the Auction is that every year is different – we never know ahead of time what we will have for sale. With all the different departments we have, there are very few things you need in your home that you can’t find at The Lord’s Acre Auction and Sale!
The Auction does not happen without a lot of hard work by a lot of people. Leading the charge are our department heads: Doris Appel, Emma Sluus, Wayne Shelton, Susannah White, Nici Fix, Paul & Lisa Herrington, Ed & Maureen Gardner, Liz Hurley, Broome & Penny Spiro and Andy Tillman. Fortunately, we get tremendous support from the community for this endeavor, and many people work on the Auction who are not members of this church. We couldn’t do it without so much wonderful help, which we are always thankful for.
Starting around the first of May, we are at the barn every Saturday morning from 9:30-Noon to accept donations. From August 1 through October 1, we are also there Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 to accept donations. If anyone cannot come during those hours, we can be there to meet them by appointment. We are always looking for donations of good quality, new or used items that we can sell in October. To make arrangements for pickups, call the church at 766-3535 ext. 3 (The Clothing Barn). Please note that our deadline for pickups and donations is October 1.
