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… September 3, 2015

James tells us to stop showing favoritism in the assembly, treating the rich visitor with more honor than the poor one. Jesus himself seems to show partiality in his first response to the Syrophoenician woman in Sunday’s gospel. Was he testing her faith in saying Gentiles don’t deserve the goods meant for God’s children? Or was he speaking out of his human worldview, but transcended those limits when she took him by surprise with her reply? Either way, the story tells us that God shows no partiality. Everyone who brings her or his need to Jesus is received with equal honor as a child and heir.

This Sunday we welcome a new member. Landon Noah Jaworski, son of Rafael Jaworski and Carlee Claus, will be received through Holy Baptism.

This Sunday and the following Sunday, the 13th, we will continue our summer schedule with one service at 9:15am. The fall schedule resumes on Sunday, September 20th, with services at 8:15 and 10:30 with the Learning Hour at 9:15.

See you at worship.
