March 22, 2018

Most people enjoy parades. The Rose Parade, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, St Patrick’s Day Parades. The floats, marching bands, people riding horses, big balloons.

But what if there was none of that in the parade? Only a middle aged itinerant preacher riding on a donkey. Would people be as excited?

It might not seem like such a parade would get people excited, but almost 2,00 years later, it still does. Come this Sunday and join with the church in all times and all places in the parade.

Worship is 9:30 Sunday morning. Coffee hour is at 10:30. There is no Adult Forum is at 10:45. There is no Dinner Church this Sunday or Easter Sunday.

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.
