Northern Illinois Online Bible Study
Takes on Ruth,
Song of Songs,
Lamentations, and Esther.
Bible study comes to your home, each Monday at 7:00 p.m.
Northern Illinois Online Bible Study (NIOBS), is made up of several Salem members, and others from Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, and Virginia. For that hour each Monday we meet via Zoom to pray together, read the Bible together, and grow in our understanding about how God is calling us and helping us follow that call.
Throughout the month of March NIOBS will be studying four amazing but little understood books of the Old Testament -- each read in their entirety as part of Jewish rituals throughout the year: Ruth, Song of Songs (also known as Song of Solomon), Lamentations, and Esther.
On Monday, March 11 we will be joined by Professor and Rabbi Tamara Eskenazi of Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles -- an expert on the Book of Ruth.
You can phone John Seraphine at 630-677-5553 to be put on the email invitation list for NIOBS, or use this Zoom link on Mondays at 7 p.m.

Our sessions, last about an hour starting at 7:00 pm every Monday

Come To Lunch & Learn:
Bring Food and Your Questions
Do you have questions about life or about God, or about life with God? It's a sure thing that others have asked the same questions. And that's what Salem's Lunch & Learn is all about. We take turns suggesting topics for exploration. We pray, we listen to each other, and we listen to God.
Join us for an hour or so each Thursday (except March 28) at 11:30 a.m. in Salem's Chapel Lounge/Council Room at the end of the office hallway. We supply the coffee, you supply the questions.
Household Dedication to Jesus, the Good Shepherd

What is a household dedication to Jesus, the Good Shepherd? A household dedication is a ceremony in your home in which you ask Jesus to guide and protect your family in a special way. In other words, you invite Jesus to be the Shepherd of your home. If you would like a copy of this please call the Church Office.  815 895-9171
