Lectionary Class:  The lectionary is a list of scriptures readings assigned to be read on a particular day.  Many Christian churches around the world used the Revised Common Lectionary, a three-year cycle beginning in Advent.  Each year the Gospel of Matthew, Mark or Luke is read primarily with the Gospel of John interspersed throughout all three years.  The class studies the lessons of the day, how they are related and how they can impact us. The class meets at 9:15 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Pastor Kelly will lead a morning Bible study each Wednesday morning during the school year, 10:00-11:00 a.m. in the Garden Room.   The class will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 21.  You will need your Bibles and a notebook as this will be a real study, not a gathering of opinions!

Pastor Kelly will start with an in-depth study of the first 11 chapters of Genesis.  You will discover things in there you have never seen before.  Myth, mystery and mystics will be covered.  You will get a nice dose of science and religion and some tools in your tool box to understand where the Fundamentalist and many Evangelicals fall the track.  No advance knowledge or study is necessary.  All are welcome to join the study group!

Weekend of Theology

Salem offers a Weekend of Theology where a guest theologian is invited to our congregation. The weekend serves as an opportunity for our membership to become acquainted with one of our ELCA theologians and to explore a specific topic or issue.  Watch for more details to come and make plans now to join us for a wonderful weekend.
