If you’ve never seen a bucket of cookies sell for $100, you probably haven’t recently been to the Worthington Christian School Donation Auction.

This year, the event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8, with our gym doors opening at 9:30 a.m. and bidding beginning at 10 a.m.. First-time attendees are always floored by how incredibly generously people give. Businesses from across the region support us in our mission (to educate children in the light of God’s word) with fantastic donations including toys, tools, gift certificates, free services and more.  

Steve and Beth Prins, our volunteer auctioneers, keep the auction fast-paced and fun. Some attendees spend hours at the auction, and others simply pop in to enjoy the atmosphere and grab a bite to eat at our lunch counter. If you would like to donate to the Christian School auction or want more information about the event, please call our office at 376-4861.
