Here’s what is happening at Salem
October 16, 2014
Thank you to everyone who worked on sealing the parking lot last weekend! It looks beautiful, and is ready to drive on.
Saturday is the Big Day of Serving in Bridgeport. If you’re interested in being part of an exciting day, the gathering point is Webster Arena, at 7:30 a.m.
Sunday we celebrate “God’s Work, Our Hands” Sunday, which is an ELCA-wide theme as well as ours. Worship at both services will listen and sing to the music of Spirit, we’ll recommit ourselves to serving our God and our neighbor, and following the second service the Youth will host a lunch downstairs (free will offering) followed by a few hands-on service projects for folks that are sometimes forgotten.
Adult Forum will feature Sound expert Tom Filogomo who will be at both worship services to evaluate and help us improve our sound system. He’s open to questions of all kinds!
One special project: following the 10:30 service, before lunch, I need 5 – 6 strong men (with no back issues) to help move the baby grand piano into the sanctuary for next Saturday’s concert. It wheels easily, but must be lifted down the 2 steps into the narthex. Who can help?
See you at worship!
