Little Free Library

Little Free Library

Please visit our Little Free Library in our main parking lot.
The Little Free Library is a wonderful box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. It is a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. Reading certainly does change lives.

See for more information on how this works.

Sunday School class for children in grades K-12

There will be Sunday School after the Children’s Time on February 5, February 19, March 5, March 19, and April 2.

Please note that classes include middle and high school students. Students will accompany the teacher downstairs at that time. Parents are asked to stay upstairs until the end of class when the teacher will bring the students back upstairs at approximately 11:45 a.m. All families are encouraged to invite a friend along to church and Sunday School!

The Helping Hands Program at Bethany Children’s Home

The Helping Hands program at Bethany Children’s Home continues to temporarily shelter unaccompanied children who have crossed our borders to enter the United States. These children are seeking to reunite with their families who already reside in the United States. Many of these children are victims of human trafficking and/or have come from very dangerous environments. A list of current needs may be found on the table in the west foyer. Donations may be placed on the designated table in the west foyer. In addition, if you wish to make a monetary contribution which will be used to purchase items that are not covered in the grant, you may write a check to Salem and write Helping Hands on the memo line and place the check in the offering plate. Thank you for your support and generosity as we not only give a Helping Hand but also a Brighter Future for these children.
