Through the Cross
Join us at Salem for a 40 day journey that opens us to a deeper understanding of what Jesus has done and continues to do among us beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 6. Jesus is our hope and divine response to the world’s greatest need. He meets us most clearly and most profoundly through the cross.
