Thanks for Your Support!

WEST SAND LAKE – Twenty-five years ago, Salem United Methodist Church took on a new ministry, the Jubilee Child Day Care. With an outpouring of support from the community, we were able to renovate our building and grounds and equip the day care program for opening within a few short months. Fast forward to the present, Jubilee continues to offer quality day care for families in our community, and the community continues to support the day care program.

To the many people who joined us for the 25th Jubilee Anniversary Patsy Cline Tribute Concert on July 23rd, Thank You! Your attendance made for an evening of community at Salem Church and your ticket purchases will enhance our day care program. The Flood Relief boot collected $59 which will be matched and given to the West Sand Lake Fire Department. Special thanks to Magician Jim Snack who generously donated his time and talent, and to the generous and talented Courtney Shayne Karl for her professional performance.
