Saying "farewell" is never easy - especially when it comes to friends as special as Dale and Linda Magnuson - but Salem recently had to do just that. They had been planning to relocate to Tennessee eventually (post-retirement) but the timeline shifted a bit when Dale accepted a new job there.
Beyond to having to say goodbye to both Linda and Dale as long-time members of Salem, we also had to say goodbye to Linda as our church secretary for the last 25 years, and so the celebration on December 14th was not only a farewell but a celebration of Linda's faith-filled ministry to our church over the past quarter century. No one will ever take your place!
Please join us in wishing Dale and Linda the very best in their new adventures!
The children of Salem presented "Just a Little Christmas" as their annual Christmas pageant on Sunday, December 14th.
Linda Myers has agreed to temporarily fill the position of parish adminsitrative assistant. Her first day in the office will be January 2nd. Linda will work 20 hours per week. Once Salem's new Pastor has been called, a search for a permanent candidate will begin.
Our gratitude to Linda for helping out!

Salem welcomed two new council members in December, Toby Lucy and Andy Olpin, who join current members Jeff Burns, Keith Thompson, Barb Ryan, and Margaret Mosser.
Jeff, Keith, and Barb will continue to serve as President, Vice President, and Treasurer, respectively, while Andy Olpin will take on the role of Secretary.
We thank these individuals for their willingness to give so generously of their time and gifts as they help lead us in our mission and ministry during the upcoming year.
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.
