SHARE IN EXCITEMENT & HOPE

ON SUNDAYS

Are you interested in sharing excitement and hope through Salem Lutheran Church? Sundays are great opportunities to reconnect and renew that excitement. Through the grace of Jesus Christ, we are connected within by love, reach out in hope to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with one another, the community, and the world.

This as a personal invitation to come to the house of the Lord to be among God’s people, pray, hear the word proclaimed, and commune at the table of the Lord. There is joy in the house of the Lord, even more when we are together. Salem Lutheran Church looks forward to seeing you in worship.

Sunday mornings at Salem Lutheran Church

The fall Sunday morning schedule includes two worship times and education hour.

8:30AM – WORSHIP

Traditional one-hour worship with communion

9:30AM – FELLOWSHIP

Cookies and conversation in the Social Hall

9:45AM – EDUCATION HOUR

Education opportunities for all ages.

11AM – WORSHIP

Casual-style, 45-minute worship with communion.

At the heart of our Advent preparation stands John the Baptist, who calls us to repent and make a new beginning. As the darkness increases we turn toward the approaching light of Christ. For Christians he is the root of Jesse, the righteous judge who welcomes all, especially the poor and meek of the earth. We wait with hope for that day when the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and there will be no more hurt or destruction. From the Lord’s table we are sent in the spirit of John the Baptist to proclaim that in Christ the kingdom of God has come near.
