Wellington First United Methodist Church is partnering with Flat Rock Homes for its

2017 Biennial Quilt Auction on Saturday, October 21.

       The Quilt Auction will again be comprised of two parts:  a Silent Auction, and a Live Auction conducted by Bob Hale,

auctioneer of Benefit Auction Services.

The Live Auction Quilt Preview begins at 11:00 am and at 12 pm (noon) the Live Auction starts and the fun begins!

As always, all proceeds will benefit the children and adults served by Flat Rock. Flat Rock serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in residential and vocational settings. Flat Rock is a nonprofit, faith-based organization that is in a covenant relationship with the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Flat Rock looks forward to working with the Wellington First UMC for this year’s event. The willing spirit of all those we have been in contact with is nothing less than amazing. Wellington First UMC is part of a wonderful community in Wellington, Ohio which is supported by its residents, businesses and churches alike. The community pulled together in 2012 to looking build a new middle school. Through an inspiring adventure that ended in late 2015 and early 2016, they ended up with that and a new auditorium in the Patricia Lindley Center for the Performing Arts being connected to it.

It is our hope to draw many new faces to this years event, as well as welcome back our familiar and faithful attendees of past years. It’s on a new day – Saturday, October 21,  in a new place – Patricia Lindley Center for the Performing Arts, Wellington, OH, for yet another time of fun and fellowship to celebrate and support the mission and ministry of Flat Rock Homes, Care Center, and Community Services.


We treasure all of these hands: those of our residents, our staff, and mostly, yours, the hands that crafted and/or donated more than one hundred quilts for our biennial quilt auction in 2015.  The 2017 auction is quickly approaching and we hope that you have selected your design and have been busy getting ready to present your handmade creations to us for this years auction. We have heard from many of you and are excitedly anticipating the arrival of all the promised creations for this year.
