    • This is an ACE where we auction services (e.g. food deliveries, making plushies, music lessons, cleaning etc.), and all proceeds will go to Feed My Starving Children.  We have donors willing to match up to a total of $1000! This is an opportunity to serve one another while developing a heart for our community and world. To buy a service, bidding will begin at the starting price (determined by the service provider) and increase until the number of people left standing is equal to the maximum number of people who can receive the service. If there are more than the maximum number left standing, a random number generator will be used to determine who gets the service. If you plan on buying services, please bring at least $5 to deposit on the night of. We will also be using Venmo as payment (https://venmo.com/i/Chinese-BibleStudy). If you’d like to provide a service, please send a ppt slide with the following information to CBSservicemarketplace@gmail.com by Wednesday March 11th:
      • name of the service

Lectures will be given by guest speakers and videos, and cover topics ranging from the Mission Spirit & Discipleship to the Islamic culture.
