Knowing it is difficult to imagine how we will yet use this renewed and expanded space, Salem Lutheran Church decided to engage in a Bridge Appeal to get us from one campaign to the next so that we continue to be good stewards and pay down the debt as quickly as possible and free up resources for expanded ministry possibilities.
For those of you who have contributed to the previous Renewing God’s House Appeal and have fulfilled your pledge of support, thank you. We have seen above and beyond giving and it has been a blessing for all of us.
This ask is to request that you consider extending your level of giving for both the annual ministry support (2022) and also a debt reduction appeal.
The Bridge Appeal response will help determine the level of ask that may be required in the fall of 2022 to further pay off remaining debt and to begin envisioning what future ministry opportunities God is preparing for us in the years to come with renewed space. Additionally, this ask is to those who may not have participated in the appeal three years ago but who may now be more prepared to participate with a one-year commitment.
Salem Lutheran Church affiliated with the E.L.C.A. Salem is a vibrant welcoming Lutheran community that, through the grace of Jesus Christ, is connected within by love and reaching out in hope to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with one another, the community and the world.
