UP COMING EVENTS
DRIVE-THRU COMMUNION AND PRAYER
A Message From the Pastor :
John Wesley constantly preached about the practices of the means of God’s grace. A means of grace that our church has practiced every month in the past is the service of Holy Communion. With the pandemic continuing Salem has had to discontinue this practice. However, our church was able to purchase individual communion cups with individual bread and juice. These cups will only be
touched by me and handled with gloves. Therefore, I am going to offer you drive through Communion on Tuesday evenings from 6-7 p.m. You can drive up and I will greet you with a prayer and then offer you your individual communion cup. I ask that you not exit your vehicle as I will greet you through your car or truck window. This will only take a minute but will give us an opportunity to connect with each other. We will begin our drive through Communion on Tuesday, September 15 at 6 p.m. I look forward to seeing you and praying with you.
Grace and Peace
