Evangelism Thought for the Week:

Today we heard,Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (Colossians 3:2-4) There is only one who has conquered death: Jesus! His people through the gift of faith see Him as their life and are assured that when Jesus returns in glory we will appear with Him in glory. Tell everyone about Jesus, the resurrection and the life!

Easter Worship:

Easter Sunday Worship, April 20th, 8 & 10:30 a.m.
Easter Breakfast from 9 a.m. - 10 a.m.

Special Music:

We thank the Lord for the special Easter music we have this morning. We are thankful for the trumpet played by Mark Kuehn and the special piano and organ music by Carrie and Laura Johnson.

Easter Lilies:

Thank you to all who purchased Easter lilies to help celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. You may take your lily home after the late service today if you wish.


Our ladies have put out a mite box in the hall if you would like to help support our mission work through the Lutheran Women's Missionary Society (LWMS) home and world mission projects. For more information contact Lorry Flath.

Monday Evening Services:

Monday evening worship services start on Monday, April 28th and will continue until the week of Thanksgiving with the exception of Memorial Day and Labor Day. Please tell all who desire that worship time. May the Lord bless our worship.

Come Follow Me Video:

We have many videos for those who do not have one. Think of those you can share one with and tell them what Jesus has done for them.


Confirmation this year will be on Sunday, May 11th at the 10:30 a.m. worship service.

Quarterly Voters' Meeting:

The voters' meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 22nd at 6 p.m. Please come and hear the quarterly reports and plans that are being made for our 125th Anniversary.

Spaghetti Dinner:

Salem Teens will be hosting a spaghetti dinner/ silent auction Sunday, May 18th, at 5 PM. Homemade spaghetti and garlic bread are only the beginning of a great afternoon. We are in need of items to be donated for the silent auction. Suggested items may be handmade goods, homemade baked treats, practical hardware items, gift cards or certificates, or other items you are willing to donate. We will accept donated items the week of May11th.

Your involvement means you are supporting our teen group as they prepare for the 2014 Summer Youth Rally in Knoxville, Tennessee, as well as other teen activities for the summer.

Teens: Set up for the spaghetti dinner will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 17th. All teens are needed.

Summer Camp:

If anyone is interested in attending Camp Bird near Crivitz, WI., registration forms for this year are available on their website: The dates for this summer are July 6-11, July 13-18, and July 20-25.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:

There is no Bible Class on Easter Sunday. Next week we will continue our study of the book of Exodus. We are currently looking at the 10th plague as God institutes the Passover and will lead His people out of Egypt.

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.

Anniversary Display:

As we prepare to celebrate our 125th Anniversary on September 21st, (Please set that day aside) we want to set up a historic display of items from Salem's history in addition to what is in the hall. So if you have old photos, bulletins, books (Sunday School, Catechism, hymnals, etc.) or anything else that is historic and connected to Salem, please contact Cam Blakeslee who will be in charge of our display. All items will be returned to their owners.

Proposed Anniversary Project:

There is a display on the table in the hall describing the proposed 125th Anniversary Project. The project is new, handicap accessible front doors. The display gives an idea of how it would look and why it would be both practical and inviting. There is also a color handout for anyone who would like.

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.
