A church congregation plans to sell its vacant former church on eBay to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Bidding on the former North Meridian United Methodist Church will start at $1, the Rev. Randy Davis said. Bidding will begin Monday and end Oct. 27.
Davis is pastor of Redkey United Methodist Church, which was formed in December when members of North Meridian and Main Street United Methodist churches voted to combine.
The new congregation uses the larger Main Street building in the town of about 1,400 about 15 miles northeast of Muncie.
Church members recently voted to sell the old 7,000-square-foot church, furnishings and parking lot on the online auction site. They will donate the proceeds to hurricane relief through the United Methodist Committee on Relief.
"I don't think many people have tried something like this," Davis said. "But we just thought this is the way to go. It'll widen the market for us."
Some of the old church's furnishings, including pews, will be auctioned separately.
