This Week at Salem
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD - Don't forget boxes are due THIS SUNDAY MORNING , November 23! We will deliver them to the local collection center after morning worship.
OUR "SHOEBOX SHOP" (Room 119) will be open from 9 am-noon on Saturday (November 22) for anyone who would like to help pack more Operation Christmas Child boxes! If you missed last Sunday night's packing party or just want to do more, we'd love to have your help. Remember, every single box represents a child - and every child means the opportunity to change a life, a family, or even a community with the love of Christ! We could still use more of the following items if you'd like to drop them by between now and Saturday: pencils, soap, washcloths, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Thank you for your support!
HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY! Please join us for a Birthday Celebration in honor of MARY JEAN McMANUS this Sunday, November 23 from 2-4 pm in Room 140. No gifts, please - your presence is the only gift requested!

NEW CHRISTMAS SERIES begins next Sunday, November 30 - Next Sunday we will begin a Christmas message series, "Song of Heaven".
