PRESBYTERIANS CARE...

BELIEVE IN THE LOVE AND
SPIRIT OF THE CHURCH

Following the CDC's and Governor DeWine's new guidelines concerning COVID-19 restrictions. Session asks everyone to use their own discretion
regarding masks and social distancing. If you are unvaccinated for any reason, please consider your own safety and the safety of others.
WELCOMING 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.

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will repay him for his deed.” 

[Proverbs 19:17]

The Pastor Nominating Committee has completed a draft of the Ministry Information Form (MIF) for Session review at its regular meeting on Thursday, April 15. The MIF is a collaborative effort with the PNC and Session to provide potential candidates for pastor with a clear view of the church’s sense of mission, its strengths and weakness, its resources and needs, as well as the gifts a new pastor should bring to her/his ministry.

Once the MIF is reviewed, revised, and approved by the Session, it is ready to go to the Committee on Ministry of Eastminster for its review and approval. The Ministry Information Form is an extremely important document. Once the MIF is sent to the General Assembly, it becomes visible to ministers and seminary graduates, providing a first impression for those who are searching for a new opportunity for ministry.

 
Please pray for our Pastor Nominating Committee to search judiciously for our new pastor by discerning the will of God.
 
Members of the Pastor Nominating Committee: Brenda Bradley, Ken Double, Paul Fennema, Kirk Hofmeister, Ruth Newman, Gloria Shafer, and Sue Skiba. Dan Schomer, Moderator of Session

 FPC VERSE
of the
Week

Acts 2:2-4
2 And suddenly there came a sound
from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
 
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
 
4 And they were all filled with the
Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.


 

Next weeks verse is Philippians 2:5-12
