Welcome to believers and questioners, and to questioning believers.

Here’s what is happening at Salem

This weekend… July 30, 2015

 Bread is almost a bad word in our low carb culture, but in the ancient world home-ground and baked barley loaves were literally the basis of life. So when Jesus calls himself the bread of life the image is not that of a polite side dish or tasty appetizer, but rather the one food that is absolutely necessary. There’s a reason the gospel of John uses a whole chapter to explore its meaning and it’s the same reason we’ll be thinking about it this Sunday and for a few more to come!

Summersong starts on Monday and will ramp up all week,leading to two events on Friday to which everyone is invited.

The Summersong closing performance is Friday at 2 and the Salem/Summersong picnic begins Friday at 5! We’ll be grilling in the picnic grove but potluck offerings will round out the menu. Come relax in the shade and celebrate summer!

See you at worship.

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.
