Order from Amazon
Use our Amazon link to buy books, music, movies, electronics, and everything else that Amazon sells, and UUC will receive a cash rebate from Amazon of up to 10% of your purchase.
You pay the exact same cost, and the exact same shipping charge, including free shipping offers, that you would otherwise get from Amazon on your own. There is NO penalty to you!
The only catch is that YOU MUST PURCHASE BY ENTERING AMAZON THROUGH THE UUC LINK EVERY TIME YOU SHOP! Bookmark our page for easy shopping! Note: Please do NOT use this link for purchasing free e-books.
Click the Amazon button at top, a new browser window will open, and just shop as usual. The rebate will come to UUC automatically.
Amazon.com is not endorsed by Unitarian Universalist Congregation. The link to Amazon.com is provided here for your shopping convenience and to provide a creative way for our church to raise additional funds.
Annual Goods and Services Auction
The Auction Committee announces the COVID 19 version of our annual fundraising auction. Register at our new auction website and start the buying and bidding! You can also download the Auctria app on your phone!
You can make bids, buy and pay via credit card on our secure website. Receipts will be emailed to you as purchases are made. We are also requesting auction items and ideas. Do you want to host a social-distancing 4th of July party? Do you have a specialty dish you are anxious to share with others? How about a Zoom game night? We are having to really think out of the box this year and will all be challenged to meet our $18,500 goal.
Of course, we hope to hold a live auction event in November, but we have to plan on contingencies! If you have something to contribute, please contact co-chairs, Molly McClintock , Irene Peterson, Linda Powers , or Joe Powers OR if you want to contribute food, contact Pat Traynor.
You must register for the auction before you can bid or buy. Go to the auction website to register. Check back on the site regularly as new things will be added all the time! Keep in mind that you must sign into the website to bid. We are looking forward to this new adventure!

Selling on eBay
If you have possessions such as antiques, old jewelry, coins, shoes, photography equipment, etc. that you no longer use, consider donating them to the UUC for sale on eBay through our dealer, AJ’s Antiques and Art Gallery in Christiansburg. AJ will research the value of each item and post it on eBay as long as the value of the item exceeds $10. If the value is lower, items will be bundled to achieve that $10 cutoff. Once the item sells, you will receive a receipt for the amount that can be used as a charitable-gift tax deduction. Bring your items on a Sunday and leave them with our Administrator. For more information or to have items picked up at your home, contact Linda Powers.
