FLIP FLOP SUNDAY
May 3, 2015
You don’t want to miss this Sunday…it will be the most dynamic and unusual Sunday ever in the
history, I believe of Salem Church. You are invited to wear “flip flops” of course as your desired
shoes...for truly you will be on Holy Ground. Don’t miss this extraordinary worship experience.
