Welcome

Reverends Frank and Trina Lewis

Session strongly recommends everyone wear a mask in the church regardless of their vaccination status. We hope you will continue to consider your own safety and the safety of others.

WE INVITE YOU HOME
Even if some continue to distance physically, know we are together spiritually!

At First Presbyterian Church of Salem, our ministry really is our ministry! Presbyterians believe that no one person has all the knowledge or skills that are needed to serve Jesus Christ in the way we want to serve him. We believe that we make the best decisions when we make them in conversation with one another. In fact, we believe that the Holy Spirit speaks to us most clearly as we listen to each others’ viewpoints. We are here to welcome you home!

VERSE of the WEEK
1 Timothy 2:1-7

1  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 

2  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 

3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 

4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 

5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 

6  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 

7  Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

GOD is LOVE

Our Congregation is Blessed!

The second phase of the Zimbabwe Well has been funded and do to your generous giving, there was enough collected to cover any extra cost incurred during the drilling. We collected $2,420 in less than six months and thank everyone who donated to help this Zimbabwe congregation in need. They are a very active church and growing quickly.  

 

Recently our Eastern Kentucky neighbors were hit hard by flooding. Everything from their homes and schools,
to places of worship, businesses and medical facilities were left in ruins. Some of the more severe flooding destroyed parts of the Buckhorn Children’s home along with Pikeville College (Presbyterian). 
We have an opportunity for mission by giving to the PCUSA Disaster Relief fund. Please make checks out to First Presbyterian Church with a designation to Kentucky Disaster Relief on the memo line. It will help our neighbors at a time when they need it most. We need to always be looking for the many ways we can serve Christ through mission. Please give as you are able.
