Daily Bible Reading Plan

Starting January 1, we will be reading through the Bible together. We will post weekly updates in the e-news, bulletin and social media sites. Printed reading guides are available outside Jenny’s office. Any Bible will do, so choose your favorite and join us. If you prefer a Bible that has prayers and meditations on the passage, we have a couple of extra copies of the NRSV Daily Bible. Please see Jenny.

Men’s Bible Study

Thursday night men’s Bible study is on break for the holidays. They will resume January 9 at 7:00 pm at Wendy’s restaurant.

Thank You from the Church Staff

Thank you for your generosity and expression of appreciation through the staff love offering. Thank you for supporting us in so many ways as we strive to be the spirit of Jesus alive in the world today and for this special gift of thanks at this Christmas season.

Your Salem servants,

David, Cheryl, Gary, Jenny, Kelly and Beth

A Special Thank You to the many people who made our new church sign possible. Every donation and the many hands that worked hard on the installation will allow us to share the Light of the World with those who pass by.

New Study Starts January 12

The GIFT (Growing in Faith Together) class will be starting a 6-week study titled “Heaven, It’s Not What You Think.” What do you think heaven is like? What will we do in heaven? Are you excited to go there? It’s more than harps, clouds and singing! This series by Chip Ingram digs into scripture to reveal what our heavenly home will be like, what we will do there, what we’ll experience, and how we’re to prepare for eternity.

We invite everyone to join this study starting Sunday, January 12, at 10:10 am in room 9.
