OMAHA, NEBRASKA, USA, August 7, 2023/ — As the new school year approaches, Salem Baptist Church (3131 Lake Street) is excited to announce its first-ever Back to School event, Fresh Fades and Flat Irons.

The event will take place on Monday, Aug. 14, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Tuesday, Aug. 15, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Salem Baptist Church.

“We believe that a fresh look can inspire confidence and excitement among students as they start a new school year,” said Rev. Dr. Selwyn Q. Bachus, Sr. Pastor. “We look forward to creating an opportunity for students to get their hair done in the latest hairstyles and haircuts before that first day of school.”

“Our prayer is that this outreach effort will allow Salem to demonstrate the love of Christ in a tangible way, while also helping families save money and become enthused about this new school year,” said youth pastor Min. Brandon Whitaker. “We firmly believe that as the church, we are called to assist the community with their psychological needs, food, shelter, clothing, as well as help them see the light and love of Jesus Christ.”
