Amy’s House Needs
Domestic violence is a major issue everywhere. At Amy’s House, the Lincolnton residence for victims of domestic violence, there are as many as 12 women along with several children. Through the month of April, we are asking you to provide the following items that Amy’s House is in need of at this time:

Hair brushes, combs, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, and soft, slip-on slippers (they have socks but the floors are cold).

Please bring any donations and place them in the bin in the mission hall cabinet marked “Monthly Missions.” This is a chance to reach out to those in need!

Relay For Life Survivors Dinner
April 17, 6:00 pm
Salem is hosting the Survivors Dinner again this year! We need donations of homemade desserts, either a cake or a 9×13 dessert. We could also use some help the night of the dinner. Contact Diane Keeney if you can donate a dessert or help the night of the dinner.

Funtimers Trip to Greensboro Science Center
Our trip will be on April 30 when we will leave Salem at 8:05 am and return around 3:00 pm. The Greensboro Science Center is a two-hour self-guided tour which features a zoo, a museum with interactive exhibits and an inland aquarium. The price for the tour is $12.28 per person. A sign-up sheet is in the mission hall, and the deadline to register is April 22. Lunch will be at Cracker Barrel. See Jenny Reilly with questions.

Daddy K’s BBQ Give-back Days
On April 23 and May 21, Daddy K’s BBQ in Denver will donate a portion of their profits from both lunch and dinner sales to the youth group to go towards their summer mission trips.
Daddy K’s is located at 6109 NC-16 Business, Denver, in the Food Lion shopping center at the intersection of Hwy. 16/150.

Biblical Fashion Show Returns
Our spring Biblical Fashion Show will be May 6 at 6:00 pm in the Christian life center. This show is both beautiful and educational! Enjoy tasty desserts, fruits and snacks throughout the evening. There will be lots of ways to help, participate or donate desserts. The cost is $5 per person (with a family max of $15), and the proceeds will support the youth mission trip.

Please contact Cheryl Barker for more information.
