O.W.L.S. is the new group for people 55 and older. It stands for “Older Wiser Lutherans at Salem” and is for all in that age group who want to share fellowship together. With a spiritual focus we seek to have fun, deepen relationships and make a difference. Lots of sharing and laughter have marked our first meetings, and we expect that to continue as we plan: informal gatherings (3rd Tuesday of the month from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm) and as we branch out with special events and activities. If you are 55 and older, you qualify as one of the OWLS. Come and join us on the third Tuesday of every month in the Fireside Room at 1:00 pm and give a HOOT!
This last fall Visitation Pastor Mark Becker joined a group of 10 from Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on a Civil Rights Tour through Alabama and Mississippi. They visited the place where the Civil Rights Movement had it’s beginning in the south and talked with the foot soldiers of the movement who experienced these perilous times in the 50’s and 60’s. Pastor Mark will share some of the stories through photos, videos and storytelling.
