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.
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.
