Oktoberfest Online Auction - bidding site

St. James will be Celebrating Oktoberfest with an Online Auction.

 The auction will begin on Sunday, October 18th at 12 noon and run through 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 25th. We have instructions and a listing of all the items that are on-line in the Gathering Space at the church. Please bring in your tickets/donations to the Parish Office by Friday October 23rd.

 On October 25th at 2:00 p.m. there will be a LIVE STREAM Drawing for 8 Great Prizes. We hope you join us “virtually!” You may donate to this event by participating in the “Online Auction” or going to our St. James website and click on the yellow “Donate” button on the right of the page, then the “We Share” giving button. Thank you in advance. Call Lisa at the Parish Office if you have any questions. 

*** Important Details -   Payment: You will pay for your winning items directly to St. James Church on October 25th between 4:00-7:00PM at the church. Cash or Check are accepted. You may pick up your items at that time also. Please make every effort to make this work.

 How the auction works: In order to Bid on an item, you need to register at the Adam Marshall Auction Website for the Oktoberfest auction. All of the items on the auction have staggered closing times. The items are spaced 20 seconds apart. The first item closes at 12:00 noon, the second item at 12:00 & 20 seconds, the third item at 12:00 & 40 seconds and the fourth item at 12:01. The very last item closes at 1:00 pm. Items will extend if a bid is placed on that item within the final 2 minutes. This can happen multiple times if bidders continue to bid on that item. When there are no bids on the item in the last 2 minute and the countdown clock goes to 0, the item is sold. To find your invoice: Login to the bidding website. Click Account at the top right. Then click the grey Invoices Tab. 

 May the items bring you joy while the bidding spreads our gifts in Christian fellowship.
