A Night to Remember    

Friday, October 14 | 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
at Center of Unity

Imagine sitting at a table of like-minded friends engaging in meaningful conversation while enjoying a delicious meal.  It's an evening of opportunity - opportunity to connect with your spiritual community, a chance to support your church, a place to build long-lasting relationships and make a difference... it's our 40th Birthday Banquet!

It's sure to be a wonderful evening CELEBRATING 40 YEARS with dinner, dancing and community...  Be sure to bring a friend to join in the festivities! 

Plans are coming together for our 40th Birthday Banquet! We have a great evening in store, with numerous activities such as a guessing table, photo area, an opportunity to write something for our time capsule, and a roving magician.
We’ll kick off the festivities at 6:30 PM, giving everyone an opportunity to get checked in and settled, get a glass of wine, mingle with friends, and to visit the various stations previously mentioned.   Dinner, catered by Café Italia in Grapevine, will be at 7 pm with a live auction at 8 followed by Karaoke, and dancing in Fellowship Hall.  Dinner will include vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options.

What's Included?

For the price of each ticket, $35, you will delight in a fabulous dinner from Café Italia, enjoy wonderful entertainment (we're still working on all the details), and you get to sing your heart out and shake your groove thang all while supporting the church!!

Show Me the Money

The fun doesn't end there though... you'll want to bring your spending money cause there's plenty of opportunities to use it.  There will be a 50/50 Raffle where the church and winner will split the proceeds 50/50.  Also, there will be a LIVE Auction with lots of good items and experiences for you to take home.

LIVE Auction

The auction will be live this year and we ask you to start gathering auction-worthy items for the event. Smaller donations will be combined with other, like items, and wrapped in beautiful baskets; others will be stand-alone. If you have or know anyone who has, for example, a time share they’re willing to donate for a week, or a vacation home; if you have or know someone who  might be getting rid of a decent, working vehicle, or who operates an adventure activity such as para sailing, an escape room, or a tour bus of Dallas/Ft. Worth; if you or someone you know can prepare and donate a private dinner for 4,6, or 8…the ideas are endless and we encourage you to be creative in gathering items for the auction!  

Purchase Your Tickets

Tickets are $35.00 each.  When purchasing online, please indicate if you need a vegan/vegetarian plate, otherwise you will be marked for a regular plate.  Tickets are also available in the bookstore.

Sponsor a Table

Table Sponsorship is available for a $25 donation.  Table Sponsors receive the table centerpiece and a 25% bookstore discount.  There will be 10 tables, and three have already been sponsored, so be sure to speak for yours by purchasing it here or by giving your payment information to the office or the bookstore.


Plans are in the works, but in order to pull it all together we’ll need a lot of volunteer help! 

We Need You

There are a lot of ways in which you can help make our event a great success, whether it's helping obtain items for the live auction, wrapping auction baskets, welcoming guests, selling tickets, making announcements during service, decorating or something else, there's something for everyone and we need you.  Click the button below to sign-up. 

Auction Donations Needed

In the past we've had a silent auction but what better way to liven things up than with a LIVE Auction!  This is one way we're able to raise a good portion of funds, but we need your help in collecting donations.  Are there businesses you frequent that you could ask if they're interested in donating a good or service?  Their donation is tax-deductible and we will promote their business in the evening program as well as our newsletter.
