Prayer of Preparation
O most loving Father, you want us to give thanks for all things, to fear nothing except losing you, and to lay all our cares on you, knowing that you care for us. Protect us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties, and grant that no clouds in this mortal life may hide from us the light of your immortal love shown to us in your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Minister’s Prayer Book, John Doberstein, ed.
WELCOME TO OUR WORSHIP SERVICE—Is this your first time at Salem? If so, welcome. We’re so glad to have you with us. If you’d like for us to get to know you better you can use a connection card located in the seat pocket in front of you and drop it in the offering plate later in the service. Also, be sure to stop at the narthex on your way out for a gift from us. Thank you for coming!
INFANT BAPTISM—During the 10:00am service, we will baptize Vivian Kathryn Baumgart, daughter of Christopher and Lauren Baumgart. Chad and Mallory Winstead are Vivian’s sponsors. Following the practice of the early church we baptize the children of believers, believing that such children belong to the household of faith. God bless Vivian and her family on this special day!

CHURCH CAMP SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE. There is money available to help with the cost of church camp.

CAMP SALEM: Based on the survey responses from parents regarding a Summer Sunday School program, Camp Salem will not be held this year. Sunday School is now on break for the Summer. The Board of Christian Education will plan to survey parents again next Spring to determine if there is more interest in having a Summer Sunday School program at that time. To those who took the time to respond to our survey, thank you for your input!
