“We had an AWESOME lunch today at Irma’s Southwestern Kitchen. Our hosts were Douglas Shoemaker and his son Logan. Doug is the son of Cliff Shoemaker and a former member of Kappa Chi. We could not have asked for a better start to our time in Houston. Thanks for the hospitality and a great lunch!”

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.
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.
