Adult or Intergenerational Studies

I’d like to invite you to a one-day retreat on October 16 from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm that we are calling Future Church.  During this time Salem Lutheran leadership hopes to lead conversations about how Salem is planning to live out our mission within the new post-covid religious landscape, as well as hear your ideas and feedback.  We will break for about an hour in the middle of the day for lunch, you may sign up and pay to get a box lunch from Faranda's or bring your own.  We will also have a chance to engage in prayer and worship together. Click this link to download the form or fill one out at the church. Please sign up and pay by Tuesday, October 12.
