Welcome Pastor Hoven!

It is with great joy that Salem announces the Reverend Derek M. Hoven as its newly called Pastor. Pastor Hoven's first Sunday will be March 29th, 2015 - Palm Sunday. 

Temporary Administrative Assistant

Linda Myers has agreed to temporarily fill the position of parish adminsitrative assistant and will work 20 hours per week. Once Salem's new Pastor has been called, a search for a permanent candidate will begin. 

Our gratitude to Linda for helping out!

New Congregational Council Members

Salem welcomed two new council members in December, Toby Lucy and Andy Olpin, who join current members Jeff Burns, Keith Thompson, Barb Ryan, and Margaret Mosser.

Jeff, Keith, and Barb will continue to serve as President, Vice President, and Treasurer, respectively, while Andy Olpin will take on the role of Secretary. 

We thank these individuals for their willingness to give so generously of their time and gifts as they help lead us in our mission and ministry during the upcoming year.

Mid-Week Recharge Continues

mid week recharge with text

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.
