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?”
