The Focus of Our Worship
Preparing The Next Generation of Pastors and Teachers To Share Jesus.

but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Evangelism Thought for the Week:
We heard in Romans 8:31-32 "If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" God our Father sending Jesus to go to the cross for us is the great evidence of His love. Filled with such love, share the love of Jesus and tell others what He has done for them.

Thursday Morning Bible Class:
We continue our study of the book of Acts, come and see how the Lord was with His people as they carried the life giving message of the gospel to every nation. We are still beneficiaries of this work that started almost 2000 years ago.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:
Today we continue our study on the book of the Revelation. There is a lot of misunderstanding about this book. Come learn what the Lord tells us in the final book of Scripture.

Salem Annual Report:
The annual report for 2014 is out for all who wish to pick up a copy. Thank you to all who gave a report to keep us all informed of what the Lord is doing through His people here at Salem.

Lenten Worship:
We continue our Wednesday Lent services this Wednesday. Our guest preacher is Pastor Paustian from St. Martin's Rapid River. Soup and Sandwiches will be served from 5:30 p.m. until 6:15 p.m. by the Pioneers. The free-will offering will support the boy and girl pioneer program for our kids. Worship begins at 6:30 p.m. This year's theme is: The Tears of Lent.

Membership Directory:
The new Membership Directory for 2015 is out for all who wish to pick up a copy.

Mailboxes:
Our new church mailboxes have been installed. We thank the Lord for the days of work that Glenn Meunier gave as he constructed them for us. How nice they look! Your name might be in a different place, but Lord-willing they will all be there. If you are interested in the old mailboxes please let Pastor know today!

Audio Loop:
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.

Sunday Fellowship:
Thanks to all those who have served for the fellowship after the 10:30 services. There are several Sundays available for serving in the next couple of months. Please sign up on the sheet in the narthex if you would like to host on a Sunday. If you would prefer to donate money for items to be purchased, you may do so. Or if you would like to make some snacks but have someone serve them, you may do that also. Please contact Kathy Grill or Cam Blakeslee if you have any questions about serving.

Flowers For Worship:
We all have the opportunity to supply a fresh bouquet of flowers for the altar during a worship service. Whether in celebration, memory, or just for the many blessings we have received, please sign up for a Sunday on the flower chart in the entry hall. The bouquets are $16.00 for one and $23.95 for two. Please make your check out to the Women's Evening Service Group and everything else will be taken care of for you. Please speak to Nancy Juhl if you have any questions.

Super One Receipts and Labels for Education:
Last year the Women's Evening Service Group received rebate checks from Super One Foods totaling $403.94. Monies received are used to keep the kitchen stocked with necessary supplies: coffee products, Kool-Aid beverages, paper and plastic supplies and cleaning items. It is also used for the replacement of broken serving items as needed. The Super One program is a blessing to our church. A big thank you to our members for collecting and contributing their grocery receipts to find this fine program.

We collect both Super One grocery receipts and Labels for Education (from soup cans, cereals, etc.). The Labels for Education are sent to East Fork Lutheran School in Arizona. Containers for both of these on-going projects are located on the counter in the hallway.
