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.
