Lunch and Learn

Weekly studies on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Salem’s Chapel Lounge.  Bring your lunches, your Bibles, your eagerness to share, and join us for the adventure.   Retired pastors and Salem members Henrietta (Hank) Milner and John Seraphine will be leading.   Lunch and Learn study, which invites you to bring your lunch and join us from 11:30 a.m to 1 p.m. each Thursday, will get back to work on January 2.   We will meet for about six weeks on the subject of Sex and the Church.   We will follow a fascinating video series by Oxford professor and expert on Christian history, Dairmaid McCulloch, that will explore the way the church has dealt with marriage, women in society and ministry, sexual ethics and homosexuality.   If you can't make all of the sessions please make as many as you can.   We have some very rich discussions.   Please consider joining us for these discussions.
