Crittenton Centers Local Benevolence

Salem Lutheran Church donated $5,000 to Crittenton Centers for a larger stove. The new stove will allow Crittenton to serve more healthy hot meals! This local benevolence administered by Salem’s Outreach Committee is part of the Capital Appeal initiative to allocate a percentage each year of the appeal to the local Peoria area community. “By the power at work within us, God is able to accomplish ABUNDANTLY far more than all we can ask or imagine… or DREAM!” (Ephesians 3:20)

Please look forward to the Crittenton Garden Open House on August 7 from 5pm-7pm to enjoy the harvest!

OUTDOOR WORSHIP CANCELLED
DUE TO PEORIA HEALTH ADVISORY
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.
