Salem

The Hamburg Area Item - - Re­li­gion -

dents of Wyn­d­cliffe Apart­ments in Ham­burg.

“It is one way we can help meet the needs of some of our neigh­bors and show them what Christ’s love is,” Long ex­plained. “And that’s what we at Salem are all about.”

Church mem­bers visit Wyn­d­cliffe and share meals through­out the year, and Long said it has been a pos­i­tive way to build re­la­tion­ships with apart­ment res­i­dents.

“I look for­ward to ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to get to know them bet­ter,” he said.

Meals are avail­able from noon to 6 p. m. in Salem’s kitchen, lo­cated at the rear of the fa­cil­ity, and in­clude pulled pork, ap­ple­sauce, mac­a­roni salad, baked beans and roll. Home­made desserts are avail­able by do­na­tion.

Salem’s gym will also host a range of activities dur­ing the Sept. 16 event. One op­tion is the silent auc­tion, which will fea­ture big- ticket items like a large smoker and a new in­door chest freezer filled with frozen, pack­aged ribs, roasts and chops.

Tommy and To­nia Krick, mem­bers of Salem Church, or­ga­nize the auc­tion.

“We try to make it big­ger and bet­ter ev­ery year by al­ways adding or tweak­ing something to keep ev­ery­one’s in­ter­est,” Tommy said. “This year is no dif­fer­ent and our Silent Auc­tion will have some big items that I can’t wait to start bid­ding on.”

Cen­ter­shot, the church’s com­pet­i­tive archery pro­gram, will have a range avail­able in­side the gym. A chil­dren’s “Pig Pen,” fea­tur­ing free crafts and draw­ings, will be tucked into one cor­ner. Fam­i­lies will also be in­vited to “Touch the Truck” in an out­door area.

Other in­door op­tions in­clude a Guess the Weight of the Ham con­test and signups for the Key­stone Miller Blood­mo­bile. Church mem­bers will staff a prayer ta­ble, where guests can leave re­quests or stop for a time of prayer.

“It’s a com­mu­nity outreach,” Schick said. “We want to show the com­mu­nity who Salem church is and what we stand for, and hope­fully to bring some­one into God’s king­dom.”

Krick con­curred, “We want to in draw our neigh­bors and friends and show them what we are all about. How can you not be ex­cited?”
