Sundays February 11th, 18th & 25th – Inquirers’ Class
This three-week discussion is for those who are new to Salem, or who have been here for a while and
may be thinking about membership. Among the topics we cover will be:
•        The history, mission, and ministry of Salem
•        The history, principles, and ministry of the Covenant Church
•        What church membership is all about
•        Possible next steps in your own journey at Salem. While participation is required for church
membership, it does not obligate you to join the church.  Registration Deadline: Wednesday, February 7th.
Please contact Pastor Rich if you are interested in attending this class. A light lunch will be served after
church before each class.

Saturday, February 17
Escape Room Adventure in Alexandria for young adults or young at heart. Leave from Salem, scavenger
hunt style around 11 am. Lunch with your group on your own; arrive by 1:30pm for some adventure.
Contact Eric Peterson at 320-212-5927 to RSVP and for additional information.



OTHER INFO:

Children who are transitioning out of the nursery through kindergarten age are welcome (but not
obligated) to attend children’s church during the sermon. Parents/guardians are taking turns but
we would LOVE to have a few more people willing to rotate with us, as part of the benefit is to give
these parents an opportunity to really focus on the sermon. If you're interested in serving in this
way, please contact Taya at 320-368-0801 or brobergt@outlook.com.

If you did not sign up to help with the Hospitality ministry at Salem and would like to be involved,
contact Julie Beckman at 264-1150.

"Freezer Refill Needed!" More hot dishes are needed that the hospitality group uses. If you are
able to make one, please put your hot dish in the gym kitchenette chest freezer.

Old shoes, sandals, boots lying around?
The Raymond Lions are collecting them for Soles4Souls again! A collection basket is located in the
narthex coat rack area.  Thank you! Any questions, please contact Dean & Barb Gunderson.
