Link Into Castle Rock FUMC


Time and Talent Auction is a great time when the community comes together to support the Church in a fun way with Brunch and an Auction. Our goal this year is to raise at least $7,250.

The funds raised support our youth’s mission trip (this year the youth will be going to Puerto Rico). Trustees to purchase equipment for the Church, and the Mission Team to assist local mission(s).

If you have any questions please reach out to Mike Vitek: mrvitek23@gmail.com
