MOPS Volunteers Needed

MOPsMOPS is a group at Salem for mothers of young children from birth to age 5. It’s an important ministry for moms in our area as the group strives to model loving Christian values to the families, and hosting this group at Salem also introduces these families to our church and school.  As our MOPS mothers meet twice monthly on Fridays, from 9:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. September through May, loving and playful men and women are needed to care for their little ones.  If you’re able to help out, even if only intermittently, please contact Erica Plumb.  MOPS would love to have you join them!


During September Salem Lutheran Church and School is collecting new unused items for the Affton Christian Food Pantry Christmas Store.  Items requested are gifts for women, gifts for men, sports items, toys (please no waterguns or sharp objects), baby clothes and diapers, electronics, household items and Christmas related materials.  Your donations of other food and personal items are also welcome.  Please place your donations in the ACFP bin located at the bottom of the atrium stairs.

You may also make monetary donations to the food pantry.  Please make your check payable to the Affton Christian Food Pantry and mail it to 4960 Heege Road, Affton, MO 63123.


Fans of craft beer, wine enthusiasts, coffee lovers, chili connoisseurs and for that matter, everyone else is welcome at the sixth annual Brew in the Lou, Saturday October 13th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Francis Park.  The event will benefit the Lutheran Elementary School Association’s 35 member schools including Salem Lutheran School.  (In addition, Salem Lutheran’s Men’s Club will once again be doing the barbecuing for LESA.)  For more information, please visit LESA’s Brew in the Lou page or call 314-200-0797.
