The Service Auction is our largest Fundraiser of the year. This event features donated goods and services from our members and friends up on the auction block – both a live main event and a silent auction event. Held every fall, near Halloween, the main event features live music and auction, great food, costumes and lots of fun.

Alternative Gift Fair
Organized by the Social Justice Council, this shopping event allows members, friends and community shoppers to purchase holiday gifts and goods from fair trade sellers and not-for-profit organizations both near and far.
Service Committee Action Network (SCAN) Concert
The SCAN Concert, held in the winter, has been going strong for 30+ years. This annual concert, featuring various local and/or folk artists, sends its proceeds to benefit non-profit organizations in Central and South America – including PeaceWorks, a non-profit begun by a Fellowship member that assists other non-profits in primarily Nicaragua.
Black Maria Film Festival
Shown annually in February, the Festival features a variety of bold, contemporary works selected from each year’s submissions of award-winning films.
Annual Picnics (click for gallery)
Two congregational picnics are held each year. In September, on Ingathering Sunday – the first Sunday of the program year – a potluck picnic is held with children’s activities and a Volunteer Fair.
In June, on Volunteer Sunday – the last Sunday of the program year – the Board of Trustees hosts a grill-out. This event also includes children activities.
Both picnics are a great opportunity to enjoy the community of the Fellowship.
