BBQ & BAKE SALE – Lord of Life’s annual BBQ & Bake Sale that we hold in conjunction with the Davis Spring Garage Sales is set for May 18th.  In order for us to make this event successful, Dick Fink is looking for volunteers.  Sign-up sheets are in the Welcome Center for donations of briskets, sausages, chickens, baked goods, drinks, chips, veggies and volunteering!  We would also accept cash donations to help purchase briskets and other items.
