We would like to thank everyone who supported the youth group in our recent Easter
Fundraisers. We “Egged” over 30 homes and served several people an Easter
Breakfast. We also bagged groceries at Market Place Foods one Saturday.
We continue our planning for our upcoming mission trip to Nashville from July 22-30.
Our next fundraisers will be bagging groceries at Market Place Foods again in April
(date yet to be determined). We are able to take individual general donations towards
our mission trip at anytime if you would like to support the youth. If people ask, checks
can be written out to Salem Lutheran Youth.
We will also be having our pre-mission trip lock-in on April 16 – 17. This will help the
people going on the mission trip to deepen their bonds and connect with the purpose of
our mission trip. This is a very important weekend for our youth, please keep them in
Our May fundraisers will include “Tag-a-bag”, spring yard cleanup, and a garage sale.
We will be taking donations for the garage sale throughout April and May. If you have
any items you would like to take to donate for our garage sale, please let us know. We
can make arrangements to pick items up and/or store them until the sale. All proceeds
will go into the Youth Account for the mission trip.
The youth summer project to add a sand volleyball court to the area behind the old
school is temporary on hold until we meet the fundraising goal for the mission trip. The
group is also planning on hosting the movies in the park series again this coming
summer. They will be hosting ongoing weekly small group discussions with topics
including: dating and relationships, reducing stress, and being happy.
