Hybrid Learning: An Update on Sunday School

Starting on March 28, Palm Sunday, Sunday School will begin to gather in a hybrid way: In-person and on Zoom!

April 4 is Easter Sunday and we will have in-person only that day. We will try to have the hunt outside weather permitting. The kids will also be decorating the Cross during our 10:30 am worship.

April 11, 18, & 25 will be a hybrid zoom/in-person lesson. 

April 25 will be the last zoom lesson of the year. 

May 2 will be a Mother’s Day activity created by the kids for moms in-person @ 9:30. 

May 9th will be our last Sunday School class of the year until Rally Day & it will be a lesson/party to celebrate Mom’s. 

More information on that as we get closer.  Thank you for sharing your kids with us this year. We appreciate your flexibility as we learned how to navigate this Covid-19 world!

Children’s Message Videos – On Tuesdays at 10:00am go to Salem’s Facebook page to see this week’s children’s message, often with a squirmy toddler assistant and Pastor Allison, and sometimes with your Sunday School teachers you know and love! Videos are saved on Facebook, and are archived here.

Faith at Home – For kids and families, here are some reading and video devotionals, coloring pages, prayers, virtual Easter Egg hunt ideas, curated by the staff of the ELCA. They are designed to help a household’s walk of faith especially in this time of physical distancing.

 

Adult Sunday School

Sundays April 11, 18, 25 and May 9, 16 – Join us for a Bible Study on “Jesus Around the World” Pastor Allison will be teaching this study for the Easter Season (except for May 2, Confirmation Sunday).

We’ll look at the backgrounds of Jesus artwork from around the world to help us grow in an even richer understanding of God in Christ through the arts. Mark your calendars! We will be in the fellowship hall 9:30am Sundays, April 11, 18, 25 & May 9, 16.

As other topics are offered, adult classes meet in the Library at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays.


Confirmation

Our goals is to grow disciples and affirm baptismal promises in Confirmation at Salem. Salem’s 2-year Confirmation experience includes Scripture study, and Lutheran Heritage and Theology. Each confirmand also has a mentor to serve with, learn with, and talk with about faith.

Weekly instruction is held on Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm at church. We ask participants to wear face coverings as we socially distance inside.
