The Focus of Our Worship
Salem's 125th Anniversary.

We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done.

Psalm 78:4b
September 28, 2014
First Lesson: Eze 33:7-11 Second Lesson: Ro 13:1-10
Psalm: 51a Gospel: Mt 18:15-20

Evangelism Thought for the Week:
We heard the Apostle Paul instruct God's people, "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." (Colossians 3:17) As God's people, we live lives that reflect our thanks to God and love for others. Invite others to learn about Jesus.

Thursday Evening Bible Class:
We are in the book of Romans; come, learn, grow and rejoice in God's gracious Word.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:
We are currently in the last chapters of Exodus as the LORD trains his people to be his special people different from the rest of the nations of the earth.

Elder's Meeting Changed:
Since Pastor has a special meeting as Circuit Pastor with the Church Council at St. John, Florence, WI on the 25th, the Elder's meeting has been moved to Thursday, October 2nd at 5 p.m.

Anniversary Display:
There is a special history display in the hall for our anniversary. Please take some time to look at different ways the Lord touched the lives of his people in the past.

Anniversary Offerings:
At the special afternoon anniversary service this afternoon, all offerings that are not in an envelope, but are loose cash, will be designated for missions.

Some have asked about donating for the food for the anniversary. We are trying to cover all the anniversary costs out of our general budget. Some costs will probably exceed our plans only due to the joy of having so many attend. We praise the Lord for this blessing! If you would like to give towards the cost of the meal, please put extra in your offering envelope for the general fund. All in thanksgiving and glory to our gracious Lord!

Anniversary Worship:
Please remember there is Sunday morning worship on our Anniversary Sunday, September 21st as well as our special service at 3:30 p.m. (Both services will be different but focused on the 125th Anniversary). Our morning worship will also have some of our favorite hymns as well as the word and sermon focused on celebrating our anniversary. This will be a special day indeed! Plan on being at both!

Anniversary Video:
A special anniversary video with all kinds of pictures of members and activities at Salem will be on display in the fellowship hall after the afternoon service today. If you are interested in getting a copy there will be a sign up sheet to purchase one if you wish.

Favorite Hymns:
The top two selections will be sung at the afternoon anniversary service and the other top four hymns will be sung during the Sunday morning worship today, or Monday night.

LWMS Rally:
It will be held on Saturday, October 11th, at Zion Lutheran Church in Peshtigo, WI. The guest speaker will be Rev. Bramdeo Ramgolam who will talk about our ministry on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.
All ladies (and men, too!) are invited and encouraged to attend. If you plan to attend, please let our LWMS Reporter Lorry Flath know by September 29th. Also, for those who wish to donate to world and home missions through LWMS, please give your money to Lorry Flath or put it in the LWMS canister on the cabinet in the hallway by September 29th.

New Doors:
At the July Voters' Meeting, the Voters' decided to go forward with the proposed Anniversary Project of installing new doors on the outside of church as well as in the breezeway. Unfortunately the doors didn't arrive in time for the anniversary. The doors will have a button to push for those who may use a wheelchair or walker. Prayerfully consider helping with the project. You can mark it on an envelope, or use the Sound System envelopes and all those funds will go towards the anniversary project.

Sound System:
There is an audio loop installed with our new sound system. For all those who use hearing aids, please set them to the "T" setting for T-coil or telephone. This will help you focus on what is being said or read. If you don't have the T-coil setting, please speak to your audiologist. All newer hearing aids have it, but some need a software upgrade.

Salem Worship Service Podcast:
Salem's worship service podcast can be found in the Apple ITunes Store by searching for "Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church" or on the Internet at or

Interested in Salem:
If you know someone that is interested in learning more about Salem, please give the contact information to our Evangelism Chairman, or Pastor Doletzky.
