Worship in the Park – Sunday, August 21
Worship in the Park will be Sunday, August 21 in the amphitheater at Bryant Square Park at 10:30 am. Salem will also have 8:30 service at SpringHouse as usual. For the service in the park, bring lawn chairs for comfortable seating around the basketball court. All three congregations are participating and there will be a potluck picnic afterwards. Hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, buns, condiments and paper goods will be provided. Part of the park building is being remodeled. We will have access to the bathrooms and a few chairs and tables, but not the kitchen area, so bring coolers to keep your food cold if necessary! We just have to do this the old fashioned way!
Pastor Rhonda’s Installation
Pastor Rhonda’s installation will be Sunday August 28 at both the 8:30 am service, and at 10:15 am before the 10:30 am service so that all of SpringHouse can be part of formally welcoming Pastor Rhonda to our Salem and SpringHouse community. Come and celebrate with Salem!
Salem & First Christian Summer Adult Faith Formation–Join Us, It’s Fun!
Our summer adventure, diving into listening for God in our lives, has been full of great people, great conversation, and even great coffee and treats. Join us as we continue meeting on Sunday mornings through the first part of September at 9:30 am in Lydia. You DO NOT need to have been in attendance to be part of the conversations – come as you can because each week is a new topic within the theme. We are using videos from “Darkwood Brew” that explore “The Unexpected Love of God” in relevant, challenging and surprising ways – featuring world-class musicians and interviews with renowned and emerging religious thinkers. Our next series is titled “Busy – Reconnecting to an Unhurried God”. Either stay after first service or come a bit early for second service and join the conversation!
On Sundays Salem offers two worship options – Traditional Worship and Jazz Worship. These two worship services are connected by Sunday School and Youth Group, as well as Adult Ed. Child care is available throughout. Full schedule >
