  Chapters & Verses Book Club
  Our book club will meet once again beginning in October. We will be reading and discussing The Hope Chest by Carolyn Brown on Wednesday, October 12, and Wednesday, October 19, at Christ ELC at 7 p.m. The book is a wonderful story centering on a woman’s inheritance for her three grandchildren that involves a hope chest and quilting, so it should prove to be of interest to many. We are prepared to zoom in anyone who cannot join us in person. Everyone is welcome to join us in our discussion. Please let Michele Witmyer know if you plan to join us in person or via zoom.

  The Women’s Guild will be holding our Holiday Bazaar on Sat. November 5th from 9 AM to 2 PM. We will need donations of items and gift cards for our raffle which will be held at 1:30 PM that day. Posters will be available in mid-September. Volunteers are needed to help with the many tasks to prepare for the bazaar. Sign-up sheets will be on the bulletin board in September.
We will begin on Sun. October 30th after the 10:15 AM church service by moving tables and bringing items from the basement to the social hall and Sunday School rooms. On Mon. October 31st, we will price items and place them on the tables. Plates of cookies will be packed on Fri. November 4th at 9 AM. Also, food preparation will begin. Other baked items and volunteers should be at the church by 8:30 AM on November 5th.
If you are able to help in anyway, please contact Eleanor Shaner. Our next bazaar meeting will be held on Mon. September 19th at 9:30 AM. We will select a charity to receive 10% of our bazaar profits.
  Regular Worship
  The Plan is to resume our worship schedule on Sept. 18th. The Schedule will look a little different this year. The Shared Ministry board as well as both governing church bodies has decided to have just one worship service per Sunday. That means we would be dropping the 8 AM service for the time being. The Schedule would be Sunday School would be at 9 AM and Worship would begin at 10:15 AM. The 1st and 3rd Sundays the worship will be at Christ ELCA at 10:15 AM, the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday’s worship will be at Salem UCC at 10:15 AM. We will adjust the schedule as conditions dictate as we go forward.

Welcome to Salem UCC, a diverse group from different backgrounds, different places, and with different gifts, all joining together as a family to do the work of the church. We are a community who believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, a community that strives to be faithful in all that it does for the glory of God. We are an active, talented group here at Salem UCC. There are many niches to fill. Some are as traditional and long-standing as the Church itself. Other niches are filled by people who come along and create them! Everybody fits here because we are family. Who are We? We are people who value faithful commitment, full devotion to Jesus, praise and worship, teamwork, and raising children and youth in the Christian faith. We are the family of God here at Salem UCC. Come meet the family!
