Salem will recognize that our pets are important and beloved members of our families and a treasured part of God's creation by blessing them at special outdoor service at 8:00am on Sunday, August 31st.
For the well being of everyone (both people and pets!) we ask that all critters be leashed, securely contained, or otherwise safely under control. More details to come!
For our June service project as part of our Wednesday night "Mid-Week Recharge" program, volunteers gathered hand-made prayer shawls and delivered them to the residents of Madison House.
We recently welcomed Judy Kaufman as our newest Stephen Minister. Judy is pictured here with Salem Stephen Ministers Mary Sikora and Margaret Mosseer.

Salem's delegates to the recent 2014 Florida-Bahamas Syndod Assembly in Orlando brought back a presentation from the keynote speaker, The Rev. Dr. Rick Rouse, entitled "A Discipleship Church: Embracing God's Vision for Mission" whch we are making availble as a downloadable PDF HERE.
Dr. Rouse told those in attendance to be bold, and challenged the assembly to see our congregations as incubators for discipleship and to move from an anxious attitude of merely maintaining our congregations to being missional for the sake of the world by discerning God's vision for our promised future.
Lutheran Services Florida served more than 130,000 men, women and children last year through dozens of programs spread all accross the state.

Our "normal" mid-week schedule appears below, but for the month of August only, we will switch the Holden Evening and Bible study so that the Holden Evening Prayer will be held on August 6th and Bible study will take place on August 13th.
For the month of September, we return to our normal schedule: On first Wednesday of each month, Roger Kjosa will continue his Bible study entitled "Back to the Basics", an overview of the Bible itself. This is a great "refresher" opportunity for those familiar with scripture, and a perfect introduction for those who aren't as well-aquainted.
On the second Wednesday of each month, we will worship using the Holden Evening Prayer.
On each third Wednesday, Cindy Knodt-Benoit will lead us in a Serivce Project.
All three events begin at 7:00pm.
