COVID Restrictions at Church
In Salem we are currently allowed up to 100 members in attendance. We have not filled church to capacity so feel free to join us!! We want to encourage all members to make the best decisions for their individual situations, and if you choose to come to church to be sure to practice safe social distancing, wearing our masks and washing hands frequently to protect each other. Let us keep our church family in prayer during this time! You can view our services here and here.
We all want to be warm for the winter.
We are coordinating with the Inside Out SDA Church and Safe Sleep United Women's Shelter to provide the Women's shelter with precious blankets. There are over 450 women living on the streets due to unfortunate circumstances. They need our help. We are asking for any unused blankets or sleeping bags to be donated. Anything helps, due to the current pandemic we ask that the blankets or sleeping bags be thoroughly cleaned before donating. You can also give directly to the organization if that is more convenient.
Feeling the Loss of Human Contact
We know that during these trying times, sometimes we need some comfort and prayer or just a human to talk to. Please contact us!! We would greatly appreciate the chance to catch up on news, and have a heart to heart together. Please contact the church office.
