Salem’s charge conference will be held this Tuesday, October 10, at 7:00 pm. All are invited to this annual meeting that conducts official business of the church.

Third Quarter Giving Statements
They are available in the mission hall. Please pick yours up today!

Joyful Christians Rock!
Have you seen the colorful rocks around town? The Joyful Christians Sunday school class has a Facebook page called “Joyful Christians Rock – Salem UMC” and they invite you to paint some rocks, put the name of the Facebook page on one side, take a picture of the rock and then tag it on their page. If you’re not on Facebook, you can still paint rocks with Salem’s name and service times and hide them around town. It’s fun to paint, hide and find the rocks!

Fall Fun for Everyone!
Join us at 5:30 pm on Sunday, October 29, for our chili cook-off, bonfire, hot dogs and s’mores, outdoor games and more! Then at 6:00 pm we will gather for a family-friendly outdoor movie. This event is free for everyone and costumes are welcome!

Simply Delicious!
The cookbooks are here! They are available for $20 each. It’s not too early to start your Christmas shopping, and a cookbook is a gift that keeps on giving! Stop by the narthex today or contact Judy Broussard, Barbara Yarbrough or Mary Lynn Creech to purchase yours. Cash and checks are accepted now, and we will be accepting credit/debit cards soon.

No Room in the Diner!
Uncle Phil’s Diner is back! An interactive, 50’s-style dinner theater will be held in the Christian life center on November 17 & 18. You don’t want to miss this Christmas-themed show where good food and laughter abound. Contact Cheryl Barker for details.

The Bazaar & BBQ are this Saturday!
Today is the absolute last chance to purchase your tickets for the Port-A-Pit BBQ! They are $10 each and are available in the narthex after each service. Buying tickets in advance really helps us in planning how much BBQ to order.
We still need volunteers to help with the BBQ and/or the bazaar including making homemade desserts to be served with the BBQ. We need everyone to pitch in! Please sign up in the mission hall.
