First Baptist Church in Highland to hold spaghetti dinner, silent auction

The Board of Christian Education of Highland First Baptist Church will hold its third annual “Very Blessed Spaghetti” Dinner and Silent Auction on Saturday, June 4. Doors open at 5 p.m. for diners to have time to check out the many silent auction items and start making bids before dinner starts at 6 p.m. The sit-down dinner, which will be served by the CE board members and youth, will feature spaghetti with meat sauce, salad, garlic toast, dessert, and beverage.

Silent auction items — ranging from a variety of gift baskets to gift certificates, hand-made items, free lunch and dinner offers, and tickets to sporting events — will be on display and open for bidding from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for adults; $4 for kids ages 6-12, and under 5, free. Tickets may be purchased at the door the night of the event.

Proceeds from the dinner and silent auction will support a number of youth programs, which Highland First Baptist offers to the general public. Those programs include vacation Bible school, which will be Aug. 5-7 this year, as well as Pioneer Club, which is geared toward students from pre-K to fifth grade, and Foundations Youth Group activities, which are open to any interested Highland area junior or senior high student.

Highland First Baptist Church is located at 2709 Poplar St. For more information, call 654-4145, check out the website fbchighland.org or email fbcoffice@fbchighland.org.
