Here’s what is happening at Salem

June 21, 2018

John Newton (not the falling apple on the head guy) was a British sailor in the mid 18th century. He served as the captain of slave ships. A series of events led to his conversion to evangelical Christianity. He gave up to slave trade and was eventually ordained as a priest in the Church of England.

In addition to being a priest, Newton was a poet and wrote many well-known hymns, the best know of which is “Amazing Grace”. The first lines of the hymn, “Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me” and the entire hymn are Newton’s spiritual autobiography in verse.

In this Sunday’s Gospel lesson, St John tells us of this saving grace and of the Word becoming flesh and living amoung us, full of grace and truth. We have all received grace upon grace.

This Sunday worship service is at 9:30. Coffee hour is at 10:30.

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.
