Salem Sunday School (prek-high school) will be reading The Jesus Storybook Bible in our homes this fall. Dwelling in God’s word together, just not in our Sunday School classrooms. Look for your Bible to arrive at your home!
Lessons and activities will be mailed each month to share during family devotion time. Maybe during mealtime once a week or Sunday morning… it’s all up to you to make it part of YOUR family’s ritual.
The Jesus Storybook Bible tells that Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. From Noah to Moses to the great King David, every story points to a Child. The one upon whom everything would depend. There are lots of stories in the Bible. But all the stories are telling one big story. The story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them.
The Jesus Storybook Bible invites us to discover the one who is at the center of God’s great rescue story, and at the center of our story, too. Because the Bible isn’t a book of rules. Or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a story. And at the center of that story is a baby. And every single story in the Bible whispers his name.
In this time of uncertainty, confusion, unknown, and information overload… let us find hope and comfort in the Word of God. Faithful people across time have struggled and wandered and looked for hope. We know that Jesus is the way and through him we find strength and life. These stories are OUR stories! Stories that tell us of God’s love for us and that he will never abandon us.
“So we have known and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them.”
– 1 John 4:16
Faith at Home on Zoom! Everyone is welcome to join on February 14 at 10am!
Being creative in these uncertain times and trying to say “yes” to rituals we have always done at Salem, but are now needing to do in a new way. You’re probably saying, “Not another Zoom meeting” right about now. This will not be your typical Zoom meeting! Don’t assume you will just be sitting down and no one will know if you are in your pajamas or not. Plans are underway to have special visitors that you may or may not recognize. There will be activities to get you up and off of your couch! We won’t be able to sing, but there will be online fellowship and perhaps a few games.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, February 14 at 10am for 30 minutes (the Zoom link will be included in the Bugle Blast and also emailed to families)
Please plan to join and “see” your Salem family and friends that you haven’t been able to see for some time.
