Everyone has talents, so why not share them with your church and make money at the same time – have a talent auction!
Have people sign up their talents. For example, youth can rake leaves, my mom can make a quilt, my brother can wash windows and someone else from the church can mow a lawn. The ideas are endless. Then the youth holds a potluck lunch after church and charges $2.00 admission (basicaly for the food) After lunch, auction off people’s talents. Whatever the bidder pays goes to the youth group. Remember to tell people that are auctioning off thier talents that they are volenteering and the money goes to the youth group.
