In The Market For A Church? Hallelujah!

Posted: Updated:


Do you know someone who has everything and is just impossible to buy for at Christmas?

We might have a suggestion for you. What about a church? It's for a good cause after all.

This beautiful house of worship is up for auction Friday at 10am.

The church was built in 1932 and sits at 4th & Pittsburg in Midtown.

It's about 15,000 square feet, has stained glass windows and seats about 250 people. And yes, the pews are included.

The opening bid? Is not too bad.

"We do open with a nominal opening bid,"Fontana Fitzwilson with Williams & Williams Auctions."I believe the opening bid is $25,000. But that's not indicative of the value. It just gets the auctioneer started, so that he can have a successful sale."

Proceeds from the auction will go to the Oklahoma Disciples Foundation.

The money will then be distributed to ministries serving seniors, youth groups and disaster relief efforts in Northeast Oklahoma.
