And, in the true Lutheran tradition, we found a reason to gather together over food - in this case, a Pennsylvania Dutch lunchoen.

Sharing Resources from 2014 Synod Assembly

Synod Keynote GraphicSalem's delegates to the recent 2014 Florida-Bahamas Syndod Assembly in Orlando brought back a presentation from the keynote speaker, The Rev. Dr. Rick Rouse, entitled "A Discipleship Church: Embracing God's Vision for Mission" whch we are making availble as a downloadable PDF HERE

Dr. Rouse told those in attendance to be bold, and challenged the assembly to see our congregations as incubators for discipleship and to move from an anxious attitude of merely maintaining our congregations to being missional for the sake of the world by discerning God's vision for our promised future. 


Mid-Week Recharge Continues

Our "normal" mid-week schedule appears below, but for the month of August only, we will switch the Holden Evening and Bible study so that the Holden Evening Prayer will be held on August 6th and Bible study will take place on August 13th.

For the month of September, we return to our normal schedule: On first Wednesday of each month, Roger Kjosa will continue his Bible study entitled "Back to the Basics", an overview of the Bible itself. This is a great "refresher" opportunity for those familiar with scripture, and a perfect introduction for those who aren't as well-aquainted.

On the second Wednesday of each month, we will worship using the Holden Evening Prayer.

On each third Wednesday, Cindy Knodt-Benoit will lead us in a Serivce Project. 

All three events begin at 7:00pm.
