NEWS  &  NOTES
  Blanket Sunday
  On January 31st, we will have our Blanket Sunday mission offering. You can place your special offering in an envelope marked Blanket Sunday and send it to the church so you can give to this important mission. Blankets+ means that Church World Service is there for the long haul as people recover from a disaster. It also means they provide support to families struggling against grinding poverty as they seek to develop viable, sustainable livelihoods – wells, livestock, micro credit, and health training. Blankets + also means you, because without you and our congregation, World service could not do this work. Our gifts provide the means to transform lives and communities during difficult times. Please consider a gift this year for Blanket Sunday. It may change your life, and it will definitely change the life of those who have no hope without Church World Service
  Online Worship (Facebook & YouTube)
  We will continue to record one of the services each week and post them on the Internet platforms so folks can worship at home. We will also record special services as well and post them. Continue to look for the emails containing the You tube links or look on the Face book pages of Christ Lutheran or Salem UCC to watch and worship.
  In Person Worship
  During the months of January and February, we will not have in person Worship. We will continue to watch the reports of the numbers of cases and the recommendation of our health officials as we go forward. Thank you for understanding these difficult decisions as we try to be the church. We all worship a God that loves and cares for us and would not want any of his children afflicted just so we could worship him when there are other means to worship him. Thank you and keep safe.
  Oley Food Pantry
  Oley Food Pantry is in need of food during this desperate time. They are serving more families than ever. I know that we cannot bring in our food offerings right now, but I would encourage anyone who can, to send monetary donations to the Food Pantry. Donations can be sent to Oley Valley Food Pantry, Friedens Lutheran Church, 1076 Memorial Hwy, Oley, PA. 19547 or you can give a donation with your offering indicating it is for the Food Pantry and we will forward it to them. Any little bit can help.
  Bible Study
  We continue to hold a bible study on Zoom. It is held 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 9 AM. The study we are looking at is called “Miracles- Signs of God’s Glory”. It is a study put out by Life Guide Bible studies. I will have the material emailed out to those interested so you can be prepared each time we meet as well as the Zoom links so we can connect for the study. We presently have several attending, if you would like to participate, please send me your email address and I will send the links and material before each event.
  Women's Book Club
  We will be studying “The Shack” by William Paul Young via Zoom beginning in February. The dates are Feb. 10th & 24 and March 10th at 7 PM. Please contact (Kathy - 484 794 1214 or Kws57a@aol.com) or (Michele - 717 475 6000 or mwitmyer@ptd.net) with phone number and e-mail address. If you cannot use Zoom and would like to call in during these meetings, please contact us as well. Hopefully we can get a nice group going again and give us all some semblance of normalcy!

OUR CHURCH
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!
