Worship at Salem

Worship is the central act of a faith community and Salem gladly welcomes all children of God to gather around Scripture, Prayer, Song, and the Sacraments.  Easy to follow bulletins will engage you in worship and friendly faces will welcome you as we share the peace of Christ.  Pastor Len Hoffmann will both comfort and challenge you in your walk with Christ in timely and relevant faith messages.

 

Worship Services

Each service celebrates God’s gift of love and forgiveness found in Holy Communion; all who believe Christ is present in the sacrament are welcome at the table. During Lent Communion is by Intinction at the Altar Rail.  Communion will be brought to those unable to travel the steps and a Gluten-free option is available.

Children of all ages are welcome in worship; each service includes a children’s message and once or twice a month Salem Puppets share a faith story.  A staffed nursery is also available.

Worship Liturgies vary with each liturgical season; Salem has a rich history of music and song and is blessed by the gifts of many people. Most Sunday services include a gift of music by one of Salem’s vocal choirs, handbells, or puppet team. Liturgies are accompanied by Salem’s fine pipe organ or piano with occasional brass, flute, strings, or guitar and bass from Salem Praise Team.  More information on Salem’s Music Program here

Unable to attend?  The first Sunday services are recorded on CDs for those interested; delivery to the homebound can be arranged on a regular basis.

Salem is also equipped with Assisted Listening equipment and large-print bulletins are prepared each week.  Simply ask an usher when you arrive.  There are handicapped parking spaces in the front circle drive leading directly into the church narthex & sanctuary as well as in the lower west parking area.  An elevator is accessible from the lower push-button door to bring you to the sanctuary level.
