2023 Craft Fair Saturday October 7

The apple butter is made. The flea market and craft items are set. We are just awaiting YOU to enjoy this on Saturday October 7th between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm rain or shine. Food and activities will also be available. See the flyer link under Events for more information.

Altar Flower Signup

If you want to provide the flowers for the altar on a Sunday, please signup in an empty block on the bulletin board altar flower calendar. Please, place only one name per Sunday. You may place a notification in the Sunday bulletin in honor or in memory of someone. Just include a note attached with your check or cash for $20 in the offering plate. You may take the arrangement home after the service to brighten your home during the week. When the arrangement served your purpose, please return the base to church for recycling back to the florist.

Fellowship Hour Signup

Please volunteer to bring in some “goodies” for our after-service fellowship. Single serving items that can easily be handled are the best. However, anything you desire would be appreciated. Beverages are provided. These beverage donations of coffee, creamer and punch are provided by volunteers. These items can be donated by just bringing them in. The signup sheet for the fellowship is in the Narthex.

Blessing Box

Girl Scout Troup 1950 members gave a Blessing Box to Salem. It is located at the right rear corner of our parking lot as you enter Salem’s parking area. Please use this for your needs. If you have excess items above your needs, please feel free to refill the box as needed to help others in time of need. See the attached poster for more details.

YouTube Salem Worship Services are Suspended

During the time of elevated community spread due to the COVID-19 proliferation, Pastor Betty Lou provided Sunday services via YouTube videos for those members who preferred to remain home. Now that the community spread is low in Harford County and Salem is now providing in-person worship services, Salem has suspended these YouTube video worship services for the present time. You may view past worship services and bulletins dating back to March 15, 2020 by clicking the “Previous Online Worship Services” link under Church News located in the left column of the front webpage.
