Live & Silent Auction Preview 5:00pm Labyrinth
Dinner 6:00pm Gym

Join us as we come together as a church to “Light the Lamp Post” for our Catalyst Youth and DARING Youth Choir’s annual Mardi Gras Madness fundraiser.

beignetsThe FUMC Allen youth are traveling to three destinations this summer to serve others, and they need your support. Please visit the youth table in the west entrance on Sunday, January 29, February 5, February 12, and February 19 to learn more about their trips and enjoy a free beignet. Then pick up a tab from our Light the Lamp Post display to receive your donation envelope. Each envelope is marked with a specific donation amount, ranging from $1 to $250. You can donate the amount on the envelope or more. If we are able to distribute all the envelopes and have them returned by February 12, we could raise at least $30,000 for summer youth missions.

Your filled envelope serves as your ticket to MARDI GRAS MADNESS, our youth-led celebration on Sunday, February 19, at 6:00pm in the gym. We encourage everyone to arrive as early as 4:30pm to preview the items in both our live and silent auctions and enjoy a mocktail or two.

This fun-filled event features a New Orleans inspired menu, live entertainment, live and silent auctions, and a festive Mardi Gras parade!
