Renewing God's House Together Updates

Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. -Ephesians 3:20-21

It is an exciting time at Salem as we see the construction and renovation in the midst of the first phase. As of November 6, 2019, we have received $1,392,699.80 in gift and cash contributions of the $2,021,900.24 that has been pledged over three years for this project. We want to thank each member for their commitment to complete their pledges. The amount received includes over $20,000 in cash from members who did not pledge to the campaign. Please know that any member may contribute whether they pledged or not and that all receipts received will help lower the amount that needs to be borrowed to complete the renovation.
Salem members will soon see actual evidence of renovation and construction that will begin to shape the dreams that we have for RENEWING GOD’S HOUSE Together. THANK YOU for both your commitment and involvement and we ask for your continued prayers and generous support as we see this dream come to fruition.

Together we are a community of faith striving to make a real difference in people’s lives. Your support and generosity ensures that worship blesses those who gather and that learning and growth happens for people of all ages. Reaching out in compassion and service to others is a tangible expression of God’s love to our neighbors. Thank you for your consideration in support of this effort!
