SAVE the DATE: Covenant Women Ministries Christmas Brunch December 2nd - 9:30am

Salem would like to offer again this year, “Parents Night Out!” for Friday, November 24th for
ages infant - 11 years old. We need volunteers to help; ages 12 & up can help babysit. Please sign
up on the bulletin board by Sunday, Nov. 5th if you can help. If we don’t get enough help, we
will be unable to offer this night out to the parents.

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.

Salem’s 150th approaches us sooner than you think. There is much planning and preparation
that needs to occur before this day. Salem needs your help, who wants to be on the team?
Contact Eric Peterson

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.
