[MAY 22, 2004]  Genesis Ministries Project will host a charity auction on June 12. All proceeds from the auction will be used in the functions of the ministry. The auction, starting at 9:30 a.m., will be on-site, at the former Bartmann Nursing Home location north of Lincoln. Mike Maske is the auctioneer.

Biscuits and gravy will be served from 8 a.m. until 9:15 a.m. at a cost of $2. Lunch will be served by Judy & Friends.

The Genesis Ministries Project is a ministry of reconciliation for women whose lives have been destroyed or disrupted by alcohol, drugs or other life-controlling problems. The project will provide a Christ-centered environment where women are given the opportunity to choose a new beginning by being reconciled first to God, then to their families and community.

Some of the proceeds from this auction will be used to complete phase one of the renovation of the former nursing home. Phase one will house six women and a husband-wife team living on the property and working in counseling and supervisory positions.

Some types of items to be auctioned are household items, children's toys, furniture, exercise and sports equipment, hospital beds, office furniture, microwave ovens, animals, 1978 Ford Pickup, Onan 55KW industrial generator, linens, and boxes and boxes of miscellaneous items.
