Welcome to believers and questioners, and to questioning believers.
Here’s what is happening at Salem
This weekend… November 26, 2015
This Sunday is the First Sunday in Advent. Advent is about the “coming days.” God’s people have always lived in great expectation, but that expectation finds specific, repeated enunciation in the texts appointed for these four weeks. The ancients anticipated a “righteous Branch to spring up for David.” The Thessalonians awaited “the coming of our Lord Jesus with all the saints.” Our Lord’s contemporaries hoped for the time “to stand before the Son of Man.” With them we eagerly await the coming days: another Christmas celebration, a second coming, and the advent of our Lord in word and supper.
This Sunday the Adult Forum will continue discussing the Visioning process and will begin at 9:00. The Boy Scouts will be having their annual wreath sale. Also, members of the Worship and Music Committee will be in the narthex following both services the next two Sundays to help you sign up for memorial flowers during 2016. Also on Sunday we will celebrate our Seafarers collection during the coffee hour. All are welcome to enjoy lunch and help fill gift bags and sign Christmas cards for the Seafarers.
See you there!
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.
