Advent Worship Offerings

In the special season leading up to Christmas, Salem will offer two separate opportunities to center ourselves in the meaning of God’s coming among us. The services will take place in Salem’s Faith Chapel.

  • Holden Evening Prayer – A service of song and reflection, Wednesday, December 5, 7pm (refreshments to follow.)
  • Service of Solace – Christ’s coming proclaims hope for all who are grieving or otherwise find the holiday season difficult. Experience words of forgiveness and the comfort of Christ in this service on Wednesday, December 19, 7pm.
In response to the recent Health Advisory issued by Peoria City/County Health Department describing rising levels of COVID cases and concerns, the planned outdoor worship service has been cancelled. Worship will still take place live at 6pm, but with worship leadership only. It will be recorded and available for viewing by 8am on Sunday, July 26.
This decision is not taken lightly but very seriously as we strive to follow health officials recommendations and cautions. We do this because we love one another and want what’s best for one another. In this time of pandemic, that means refraining from indoor as well as outdoor gatherings of larger sized groups.

The drive by farewell for Kristen will still take place on Sunday beginning at 10:30am as we will remain in our cars. Thank you for your cooperation.
