Welcome to believers and questioners, and to questioning believers.

Here’s what is happening at Salem

 March 16, 2017

 Join us as we continue our 40 day Lenten journey to a Healthier Life, using the Daniel Plan (danielplan.com). Moving on from the themes of Faith and Food, this week we consider “Fitness: Strengthening Your Body” and how keeping our bodies in shape is an act of stewardship and worship.


Join us at 9:30 for traditional worship or at 4:30 for our Sunday Night Alive dinner church where we’ll be Building our own healthy Pasta dishes for dinner. John Wilkins is the General Coordinator and Tracey Wilkins (traelwil@gmail.com) is this week’s Meal Coordinator. So far we have zucchini “noodles” with a crushed tomato sauce (Alicia Rosa), whole wheat pasta with homemade pesto sauce (Pastor Marjo), tortellini with puttanesca (red sauce with olives and capers) sauce (Aleks Stortstrom), sausage and pasta with veggies (Mary Ann Kenyon), and tossed salad and dressing (Emily Sokoloski), PLUS a dessert in honor of Jonathon’s birthday (Rosas).

In the session 3 3-minute video at http://www.danielplan.com/videos/cooking-videos/ , learn how to create exquisitely tasty, healthy meals by combining brown rice pasta, freshly diced tomatoes, freshly chopped basil, EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), and the salty tang of parmesan cheese OR whole grain pasta and finely shredded zucchini and carrots with EVOO, topped with Italian flat-leaf parsley.

If you are using the Daniel Plan book, this week (3/12-18) we’re reading chapters 4 and 10: Food and a 40 Day Meal Plan. Next week (3/19-25) we’re reading chapters 5 and 9: Fitness and Daniel Strong 40-Day Fitness Challenge.

May God bless your journey!
Pastor Marjo

Food Pantry

When Salem’s Food Pantry first opened in October, 2015, barely a quarter of the parish hall was used for the shelves of food. Today almost half of the parish hall is being used for the shelves of food, tables full of fruits, vegetables, and bread products.
The pantry is open every 2nd & 4th Thursday from 4:30 – 6:30. Offering healthy and nutritious food items and everyday supplies. Fresh fruits and vegetables will also be available. Volunteers will be graciously accepted. Interested individuals should contact Joe Bales at joebales39@yahoo.com. Monetary contributions and food donations also graciously accepted.
