We need candy and Easter goodies!

In order to keep contact with items limited, we will be making kits for the kids attending this year’s Easter Egg Hunt. So in addition to LOTS of candy we will accept fruit snacks, snack bags (chips, cheez-its, cookies,  etc.), as well as stickers, pencils, and other fun Easter items that are child-friendly.

Bring these to worship on Sunday or drop them by the church by Monday, March 22. Thanks for helping us provide a fun experience for God’s children on our community.

St. Patrick’s Day

A special St. Patrick’s Day prayer walk and reflection handout is available outside at the church office entrance. This can also be emailed to you by contacting jenny@salemunitedmethodist.com.

And Salem kids, don’t forget there is also a special green gift for you outside the church office for St. Patrick’s Day that reminds us of the trinity!

Change for a Change this Sunday, March 21

All donations this Sunday will support Salem’s Food Ministry (backpacks and the Blessing Box). You may also bring canned meats (tuna, canned chicken, etc.), and leave them in the plastic bin in the Christian life center as these items are always needed.

You may also use this link to our Amazon wish list at any time. This is kept updated with our current needs. And you can have it shipped directly to the church!
