Upcoming Auctions Events Still Have Room!

Our annual auction is where our entire congregation comes to celebrate, meet old friends and new, and fill their social calendars with exquisite services and special events throughout the year, while raising important funds for our operating budget. But sometimes events don’t sell out, or plans change and seats open up at the last minute.

See if any of these events are right for you!

O110: Arroyo Hondo Hike/Lunch, Saturday, Feb. 24, 9:00 a.m.-2:00 pm.

The Arroyo Hondo Preserve is one of the best places to hike near Santa Barbara. We will walk about 3 or 4 miles over about two hours, all on paths or with boards to help ford the creek a few times, and not too steep. Then we will have lunch by the creek. Hosted by Bruce Hanna. $30

P122: “And the Oscar Goes To…” Sunday, March 4, 3:30-7:00-ish.

O111: Daylight Saving Hike, Sunday, March 11, 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
