What’s Happening at Salem
Salem’s sanctuary is open on a limited basis to worship and Holy Communion. The Board of Elders has updated our worship policy for August. To read the policy and for more information please visit our Reopening Salem page. Even though the sanctuary is open Salem Lutheran Church is continuing to stream worship services, Bible studies, Sunday school and daily devotions indefinitely. To worship from home please visit our Home Worship page.

Affton Christian Food Pantry Cleanup Saturday
On Saturday August 15th, Salem will send a team of volunteers to the Affton Christian Food Pantry (ACFP) on Heege Road. The work includes disinfecting, dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, and other general clean up chores at the pantry inside St. John Paul II Catholic Church. Those interested in helping are asked to meet at the food pantry on Heege Road at Noon. For more information or to volunteer please email August team leader Kyle Moellenhoff.
Men’s Club Golf Tournament Cancelled
Salem’s Men’s Club has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s annual golf tournament. Due to health and safety concerns, the club has decided not to play this fall but hopes instead to reschedule it for next spring. But, the organization has decided to continue its barbecue season through October this year. Due to the tremendous support from the Salem and Affton communities another BBQ is scheduled for September 12th and an expanded barbecue menu possibly featuring chili will be held on October 10th. The Men’s Club appreciates everyone’s continued support and understanding.
During this unusual time Salem Lutheran Church and School is collecting items to donate to the Affton Christian Food Pantry. Items requested this month include all canned vegetables including green beans and corn. In addition one pound bags of rice or mixes, potato mixes and hamburger helper are being sought. The pantry is also seeking other food items, toilet tissue and personal hygiene products. If you are able, please place your donations in the ACFP bin at the bottom of the atrium stairs.
To donate refrigerated or frozen food items, please contact Mary Wolfram. Your donations are most welcome and very much appreciated. The clients of the ACFP are grateful for your generosity!
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.
