    WATCH WORSHIP BULLETIN | SUN Jan 09-16, 2022 MESSENGER 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. ​ ​ 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. We are here to welcome you home! GI- VE GOD IS LOVE The Season of Light is upon us! God's Gift to mankind in His Son Jesus Christ is come to save a world from darkness. The Star that shone over Bethlehem and brightened the Birth of our Lord is still shining in the world today. Christ has come to save the world from the hatred and inability to get along. Where groups continually fought among each other and couldn’t treat each other with respect for their common humanity. There was darkness and God created Light — the light of His Son to show the world a better way. Jesus preached LOVE and kindness to all, not just his friends and fellow Jews but to the entire world. ​ As stewards of Christ’s Kingdom, we are called to love as he loved and to shed light on our darkness. We have all fallen short of His Light. We have all sinned, not befriended the neighbor, changed His goals to our own as we justify our misguidance. If we can only focus on Loving our Neighbor as He intended, what a wonderful world we could have. Let’s take the twelve days of Christmas (from Christmas, Dec. 25 to Epiphany, Jan. 6) to consciously follow His path of Love and see what a difference we can make. We will all be blessed because as we share Christ’s love it will come back to us. The community of faith, actually the “Family” of faith, Christ’s Family will be blessed. We are His stewards at FPC Salem. Let’s show the world what we are made of in Christ’s name. ​ Go out of your way to show God’s Love — to ALL you come in contact with this season. Let His Light shine through you. Let’s give the world Christ’s Epiphany – a real Awakening of Mind, Soul, and Spirit!!! True Kindness and Love in His Name! This is our true Mission in this world. ​ Kirk Hofmeister, Moderator Mission Interpretation and Stewardship Committee ABOUT OUR FAITH We have been connecting people to the heart of God since 1832 and our goal is to inspire you!

And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.
