Here’s what is happening at Salem
Sunday Worship at 8:15 and 10:30. Learning Hour at 9:15
March 6, 2014
The word “Lent” comes from an old English word meaning Spring — and this Sunday is the first Sunday of Lent! But it’s also the first day of daylight savings time, so please “spring ahead”.
Saturday there’s a men’s breakfast at 8 a.m.
Sunday’s Adult Forum is particularly exciting: Carl Horton, Salem member and state-wide director of Project Longevity, will be here to tell us about this ground-breaking project that has proven successful in transforming the lives of young gang members. Providing a path and guidance away from a life of violence is amazing work. The Christian faith is about transforming lives — here we get to see that transformation in dramatic action. Please come at 9:15 (or so) to see how this is all happening. God is at work in the world, through organizations that are religious as well as those that aren’t.
Temptation is an old-fashioned word, but the thing itself is alive and well. What tempts you to turn away from God? Temptation is the theme for the first Sunday of Lent.
See you at Adult Forum and worship!
