Holy Week and Links

Greetings in the name of Christ! We worship this Palm Sunday on Facebook live at 10:30am! (Prelude music may start as early as 10am, so tune in to settle in for worship.) Click here to download your palm, to print, color, and wave during our worship time! 

You can find the Palm Sunday bulletin in the worship tab of our website here:



Jody has placed a few printed copies on the bench in the church entryway if you need a physical copy for your worship experience. Please come by anytime to pick one up. 

Salem’s Holy Week Experience:

We will worship online through Facebook live on…

– Maundy Thursday at 6:00pm

– Good Friday at 6:00pm

– Easter Vigil on Saturday at 6:00pm

– Easter morning at 10:30am. 

In the videos my background might look a little different though, as we are celebrating Holy Week with our neighboring congregations! Each service will be livestreamed from a different church’s sanctuary, and Salem-Fontanelle’s sanctuary will be the location of the Easter Sunday service. 

The Holy Week bulletins and other resources will be available on the worship page of salemfontanelle.org on Sunday, April 5.

We give thanks for the churches and pastors (and a deacon) who are contributing to this effort during this new season of online church!

– Salem Lutheran Church & St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Fremont, Rev. Shari Schwedhelm

– Salem Lutheran Church in Fontanelle, Rev. Allison Siburg, musician Deacon Timothy Siburg

– Bethany Lutheran Church & First Presbyterian Church in Lyons, Rev. Heidi Wallace

– St. John’s Lutheran Church in Schuyler, Rev. Day Hefner

Easter Cross: Even though we are physically apart, I invite you to drive up to church and add a beautiful flower or two (fake is okay too) to the Easter cross that you will see just outside the church entrance. The cross will stand outside (or just inside the front door if it rains) Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Our hope then is to have it front and center on Easter morning in the livestream.
