ELCA & DE-MD Synod

Salem members, individually and as a congregation, provide mission support to various programs of our Delaware-Maryland Synod and the ELCA nationwide.

We contributed to the Synod assistance for recovery from hurricane Sandy, to the ELCA campaign to combat malaria around the world, and to other Lutheran-based hunger and disaster relief efforts.

Our 2015 Lenten mission was to support the ELCA “Catch the Buzz” effort.   Our collections went to assist the ELCA disaster relief health support efforts.  We also received Thrivent Financial partial-matching fund dollars for this benevolence.
