Christmas Eve at Salem
O Holy Night! Join us for beautiful candlelight services with Holy Communion at 4:30 pm and 11:00 pm as we celebrate the birth of Christ, our Savior. There will be music from our Chancel Choir and Jubilee Ringers and violinists. At 11:00 pm, your path will be lit by dozens of luminaries – a holiday tradition provided by one of our Salem families. Pastor Norm Belland will be preaching at both services.

Welcome to our Interim Pastor, Eric Elkin!
Pastor Elkin begins the first week of January! Please come to worship and look for other opportunities to welcome Pastor Elkin as he accompanies Salem in this time of transition and opportunity.

Project Home moves in!
For the month of January, Salem serves as a shelter for homeless families with children in partnership with Interfaith Action of Greater St. Paul. Many volunteers are needed to make our guests (5-6 families each night) feel welcome and safe in our lower level Sunday School rooms. Please sign up in the Narthex for evening, overnight or kitchen shifts or call the church office.
