Grove Church Annual Youth Choir Auction

This Event Makes Choir Tour Possible

The Grove United Methodist Youth Choir will hold their Annual Youth Choir Auction on Saturday, March 24th. This event has something for everyone! Some people come for the antiques. Others don't want to miss a chance to bid on gift cards from local attractions like the Strasburg Railroad, the Lancaster Science Factory, the Turkey Hill Experience, Camden Children's Garden and The Palace Bowling Entertainment Center and many more. Nothing conjures more excitement, though, than the wild array of auction baskets. Many are themed, most are creative and all are a delight. Most auction goers find these carefully curated baskets irresistible to bid on. All proceeds benefit a deserving cause. Each year a group of Grove Church's youth hit the road and travel from church to church putting on a 3-set performance of international, traditional and contemporary Christian music. They even add dance and movement to some of their selections making it a rousing and enjoyable concert. The Youth Choir Auction provides roughly 1/3 of the fundraising needed and in no small measure enables the youth to take the trip. This year the group plans to travel south through Delaware, Virginia and North Carolina. The Grove Youth Choir is made up of 7-12th grade young people from all over Chester County including Downingtown, West Chester, Exton and more. The group sleeps on the chartered tour bus, the couches in the homes of host families, the floors of fellowship halls and even lay their heads on the occasional hotel pillow. They may travel as far as 1400 miles round trip. In addition to lots of neat treasures and something unique to do on a Saturday night, there is also snacks sold at the auction which are a popular aspect of the event. Let’s not forget perhaps one of the most enjoyable parts of the evening is the concert by the Grove Youth Choir. This FREE concert is a pleasure to behold. Listening to these young people sing their hearts out is inspiring and a definite highlight not to be missed. The Silent Auction begins at 6:30pm and the Live Auction begins at 8:00pm. Grove Church is located at 490 Boot Road in West Chester, PA. For more information check out their website at or call their church office at 610-696-2663.
