      Advent Services

      At the end of November, Salem Lutheran will begin the Advent Season, preparing our hearts and minds for Christmas. Salem’s theme this Advent is “The Inn: Housing the Holy,” a sermon series curated by Dr. Marcia Mcfee. In her description of the series, she writes:

      As we enter the Advent season, how can our churches become houses where the Holy will be born anew–offering respite, sustenance and care, opening the doors ever wider to those seeking shelter from the onslaught of life? No one church can do it all, but each can do something. As we study the biblical prophets that call us to care for our neighbors and “make room in the inn,” the lonely and frightened spaces within us are filled with the light of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.
      This theme will be carried out in both the weekend services starting November 27/28 and the mid week services starting on December 1 at 7:00 pm. The mid week services will also be Holden Evening Prayer style.  The Midweek Advent service and the weekend 5:00 p.m. service will be live-streamed for immediate or later viewing online on YouTube.

      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.
