Online Communion Services
First Wednesday of the Month
Many in our Salem community have not received Holy Communion since March. This has been a long and difficult fast, and we want to provide an opportunity for those who will not be attending in-person worship to partake in Communion. On the first Wednesday of every month, we will do a live communion service via Zoom at 7 p.m.
Adult Forum Begins Sunday, September 20 – December 20
Adult Forum will be happening online via Zoom on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. beginning September 20th. The first topic of the year will be a discussion of Rev. Lenny Duncan’s book Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the U.S.
