WEDNESDAY BIBLE CLASS 10 am: Our Bible study is on the Lutheran Catechism. Please join us.

During the month of October the Salem Ladies Guild is collecting baby blankets to be given to the Morgan County Health Department for distribution to infants in our area. Our gift of soft, new cuddly and warm baby blankets is greatly appreciated by the Health Department and the babies receiving the blankets. If you wish to give to the Ingathering, please place your blanket in the basket in Salem’s narthex or the baby bassinet in the Annex hallway. Thank you for helping us with the Ingathering.
Scrip is a fantastic way for you to earn money for our church and school by doing nothing more than making your regular retail purchases. You purchase a gift card to a participating retailer, and the Scrip Center gives us a percentage of the face value of the card. It doesn't get much easier than that! Orders may be left in the SCHOOL OFFICE. Thank you for your continued support of this PTL sponsored program.
