The worship life at Salem is the heart of what we do as Christians - gathering together as one to praise our Lord through word and sacrament. The Worship Committee gathers at Salem on the third Tuesday of most months at 7:00 p.m. to oversee the planning of faith-filled worship services, traditional and contemporary. There are many opportunities for volunteers to assist with worship services.

February Memory Verse: THE SECOND COMMANDMENT: You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? We are to fear and love God, so that we do not curse, swear, practice magic, lie, or deceive using God's name, but instead use that very name in every time of need to call on, pray to, praise, and give thanks to God.
