Welcome to Salem!

“We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.”
Welcome to believers and questioners, and to questioning believers.

Here’s what is happening at Salem

This weekend… January 21, 2016

The glory of the Lord is revealed in the reading of scripture. People stand at attention. People weep. People prostrate themselves in prayer. The unity of the church is another reflection of the glory of God. Most gloriously, the promises of God are fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. Gather round. Listen up. Glimpse the glory of God.
This Sunday is Criminal Justice Sunday. We welcome Nick Yanicelli of The Malta Criminal Justice Initiative to Adult Forum this Sunday. He will speak to us on efforts to reform the criminal justice system.

Also on Sunday local churches will close the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity with an ecumenical Christian Unity Service at St John’s Episcopal Church, 768 Fairfield Ave, Bridgeport at 4:00 PM.

Next Thursday, January 28 Salem’s Food Pantry will be open at 5:00. Volunteers are always welcome. If you can help, contact the church office, (203) 336-3300.

See you there!

Food Pantry

When Salem’s Food Pantry first opened in October, barely a quarter of the parish hall was used for the shelves of food. Today almost half of the parish hall is being used for the shelves of food, tables full of fruits, vegtables, and bread products. And just today, we received 10,000 packaged meals from End Hunger NE. The meals were packaged at an event in Delaware.
The pantry is open every 2nd & 4th Thursday from 5:00 – 6:30. Offering healthy and nutritious food items and everyday supplies. Fresh fruits and vegetables will also be available. Volunteers will be graciously accepted. Interested individuals should contact Joe Bales at joebales39@yahoo.com. Monetary contributions and food donations also graciously accepted.

Summersong

The Summersong 2015 brochure is now online. Summersong, now in its 33rd year,  is a one or two-week program sponsored by Salem Lutheran Church for children ages of 5 and 13. Participants sing, dance, act, play in a bell choir, study instruments, and learn how to perform in a musical play guided by a committed and experienced staff of instructors. They learn new skills and have a chance to explore their musical interests and abilities in a fun and safe environment.
