Salem’s worship is informed by the liturgical calendar and by the Revised Common lectionary (a scheduled reading of Scripture). Traditional elements blend with contemporary sermons to provide a rich experience of connecting with God. Music is led by the organist, Caleb Sisak, and our soloist Joe Sobel. You’ll find familiar hymns, as well as newer hymns with a more contemporary flare.
The morning service typically has a call to worship, a time for confession, Scripture readings and a sermon. Congregational prayers not only show gratitude for God’s goodness, but address the needs of our world, our country, and our local communities.
Following the church calendar, worship celebrates the seasons of Advent, Epiphany, Lent, Pentecost and Ordinary Time. As the seasons change, so do the colors of the altar cloths. We remember the importance of hope during Advent, enlightenment during Epiphany, the journey to the cross through Lent, the joy of the Resurrection in Eastertide, the gift of the Spirit at Pentecost, and the work of the Church in the world during Ordinary Time.
