Case Study

Weekend Worship

Online Worship  

We have two new ways to worship.  Due to cold weather approaching and a desire for a more communal experience, everyone is invited to join us for a live worship service on Zoom

Saturdays at 5:00 pm or Sundays at 9:30 am.

Don’t have a computer or online access?  Please call in  at these times using the information below.  Don’t want to get dressed and embarrassed to be seen in your pajamas?  Join us and don’t turn on your camera!

Coffee time following the services!

Recordings of the service for later viewing will be uploaded on Facebook for those who cannot make it to the Live Zoom Worship.

This weekend we will have special music and sermon by Synod Northern Illinois Staff.

There will be no bulletin the words are all on the screen.  There will be coffee hour after each service.

We are so grateful for the generosity shared with us as our stewardship season has concluded. Many of you have sent in your pledge cards by mail, dropped them in the box in the vestibule , or took advantage of our electronic pledge card.

The finance committee is busy putting together a faithful and responsible 2021 budget. If you have not submitted your pledges, you can help by returning the pledge card to the church or clicking on the link below and sharing your commitment to the next year.

Despite everything, Salem is still a growing and active congregation. We are in this together and appreciate your support.

Those in need of Pastoral Care have two new options:

1) Call Sue during business hours at the Salem Office

2) Call or Text Salem's new Pastoral Care Line at 815-797-2441. Currently, this Google Voice number will call or text Pastor Preston's cell phone after hours. It may ask you to state your name before the call is connected, this will help weed out spam phone calls.

In the future, this one number will ring/text either Pastor Preston's or our future Associate Pastor's cell phone depending who is on call for the evening.

Non-emergency prayer requests may also be emailed to Pastor or at the Salem@slcsycamore.org address.
