Pentecost
The Focus of Our Worship
The Coming of the Holy Spirit.

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

Evangelism Thought for the Week:
Today we heard Peter tell the crowd, And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Acts 2:21) We are here to tell others about the name that is above every name, Jesus. So that those who call on him in faith will be saved. Invite others, share with others the good news of Jesus.

Thursday Morning Bible Class:
We continue our study of the book of Acts. We marvel at how the Lord blessed those who risked their lives so the gospel would be spread. The Lord is still blessing the spread of His life giving word today.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:
Today we continue our study of a conference paper that Pastor wrote for the last Pastors' conference on contrition and repentance. Come and learn how the Holy Spirit is an important part of repentance.

Ladies Annual Picnic:
This get-together is for ALL LADIES of the congregation and will be held on Thursday, May 28 starting at 5:00 P.M. in Salem's Fellowship Hall. It is 'potluck' style, so please bring a dish to pass. (See the sign-up sheet in the entry hallway). Brats, hot dogs and beverages will be provided. If you have a game to share, please bring along with you. We have invited ladies from several of our sister congregations. If you have any questions, please contact Jan Baker at 789-2430 or Kathy Grill at 786-0515. You are welcome to bring a guest...or two. Come and enjoy some good food and great fellowship!

Confirmation Class:
The last confirmation class for this school year is Wednesday, May 27th at 4:30 p.m.

Monday Worship:
There is no Monday Worship for the 25th, Memorial Day. We resume our Monday night worship on, Monday, June 1st.

New Meditations:
The new Meditations, our daily devotion booklets, are ready to be picked up. The devotions begin in June.

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.

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 http://www.salemescanaba.org/rss.xml or https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/salem-evangelical-lutheran/id918960511.

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 Janice Gayan if you have any questions about serving.

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.

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 or Mary Ann Thorsen if you have any questions.

Super One Receipts and Labels for Education:
We collect both Super One grocery receipts and Labels for Education (from soup cans, cereals, etc.). Money rebated from the Super One receipts is used to purchase kitchen supplies. 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. Please remember the receipts have to be from 2015. We cannot use receipts from 2014 anymore.
