Services of Holy Communion will be at 5 p.m. Saturday and 8 and
10:30 a.m. Sunday. All are welcome.
The Salem Puppet Praise Team will enhance Sunday worship services by sharing an Old Testament reading from Isaiah 64 and a skit asking God to deliver God’s people and bring hope and light. Puppet songs include “Waiting for a Miracle/O Come O Come Emmanuel” and “In Jesus’ Name.”
Light refreshments will be served in the narthex after the 5 p.m. Saturday worship.
An Advent brunch will be served at 9:15 a.m. Sunday in Fellowship Hall; those attending are asked to bring pastries, breakfast casseroles, fruit or juice to share.
After the meal, Sunday school children will be dismissed to rehearse their Christmas play, and Clements will invite discussion from the congregation.
