Here’s what is happening at Salem

 April 20, 2017

 Join us as we conclude our 40 day Lenten journey to a Healthier Life, using the Daniel Plan (danielplan.com). During the 5 weeks of Lent we looked at 5 areas of our lives that our essential to our health: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends. This week we wrap up the series with “Living the Lifestyle” as we look ahead to continuing our lifelong journey towards health.

Join us at 9:30 for traditional worship where Pastor Leroy Ness will lead us in worship while Pastor Anderson is on vacation. (Coffee hour will be in celebration of the way God works in the most unexpected and wonderful ways!)

Or come at 4:30 for our Sunday Night Alive dinner church where we’ll be celebrating how the Daniel Plan has provided a new beginning for us with a dinner comprised of very healthy, hearty appetizers.

Tashana Rose ( tashanarose@gmail.com ) is food coordinator, so please let her know what you would like to bring. Pastor Linda Kraft will preside at Communion, Kristin Huffman will join Joel and Katie in leading the music, and Evan and Sara will have another move of the week for us.

If you’re interested in learning a fast, easy way to cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts to use over pasta and marinara sauce, in quinoa tabbouleh, for chicken salad, in a pita, in a green, cobb or Mexican style salad, or in countless other ways, check out session 6 at http://www.danielplan.com/videos/cooking-videos/ .

If you are using the Daniel Plan book, this week (4/23-29) we will be reading chapter 8 on Living the Lifestyle and if you haven’t already created your FREE Daniel Plan Health Profile, do it now at danielplan.com. If you’ve already read the Daniel Plan book and study guide, you might want to follow up with the Daniel Plan Journal, ( https://www.amazon.com/Daniel-Plan-Journal-Days-Healthier/dp/0310344328 ).

To your health!

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.
