The Vision Committee is comprised of individuals who attend Salem Chapel UMC and are dedicated to organizing events to help those in our community enjoy God's grace. This committee organizes several events during the year which include:
Family Fun Day is an annual event that has previously been held in June but has been moved to September due to scheduling conflicts. A FREE meal is provided to everyone in attendance along with tickets to play carnival-type games with prizes. The Pleasant Township Volunteer Fire Department has fire trucks on display and offers water games. Volunteer Firemen from around the area also come and participate in a water-ball competition. Entertainment is occasionally offered and has included face painting, hair spraying, and live bands in past years. Proceeds from this event are donated to local organizations and have included the Pleasant Twp Volunteer Fire Department to help purchase needed equipment and the LaPorte City Fire Department to help purchase the E.D.I.T.H. Fire Safety House which is used to help train children in what to do if fire breaks out in their home. This year's proceeds will be donated to the Pleasant Township 4-H club/s. Watch this website for details and pictures from previous events..
Beef-n-Noodle Dinner is an annual event normally schedule the beginning of October. The UMW also organize a Bake Sale at this event. Proceeds from this dinner enable us to keep the Family Fun Day a free event! Watch this website for details and for ticket information.
Battery give-a-way - 9volt batteries are hand-delivered to area residents of Pleasant Township as a reminder to change the battery in their smoke detectors. No money or donations are collected for this service to the community.
