Salem Adult Ministries – 55 or Better!

Our March event was well attended by 16 people to hear Michael Carlson sing at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau. It was a wonderful afternoon, and great job to Michael on his performance.

On Saturday, April 20, 2024, we will be going to Earth Day, Earth Church at Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center (LOMC) in Oregon, IL. This event will be open to everyone. It is from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. and there is a fee of $7.00 to attend. We will plan to leave Salem around 11:00 a.m., and we will carpool to this event.

The event starts with lunch, and then Earth Church lead by Bishop Stacie Fidler, followed by a guided forest meditation and prayer labyrinth, and ending with some hiking. This event will be mostly outdoors, so please dress accordingly. Also, please bring reusable water bottles to this event as filtered water is provided. There will be places available for people with some mobility issues to sit and enjoy the camp while the hiking is taking place. There will be a sign-up in the narthex, and we will need to have our numbers in and fee collected prior to registration. Registration deadline will be Monday, April 8th.

Watch for a listing of upcoming Classics events and dates taking place throughout the year. Our May event is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th for last years’ ill-fated boat ride in Oregon. Let’s start praying now that we will finally have it.
