We're off to a great start in 2023. We had a Parent/Child dedication on the first day of the year, and that was followed by a baptism on the next Sunday! God is certainly blessing. It was good to have new beginnings, because we ended the year with several funerals. It seems to be the cycle of life. But, God is faithful, and God is always good.
We're seeing several new ministries beginning at Salem. We have 2 homeschool groups that meet here, and a private Christian School is in the works nearby. It is being started by a couple from Salem. Hallelujah! We continue to grow in number, and that is leading us to split some of our children's and youth ministry classes. Praise the Lord!
Our senior adult group, OASIS, is very active, and several good trips are planned for the year.
Please keep our church in your prayers, as God is leading us to promote a Tent Revival nearby, and hopefully, He'll provide just the right minister/ministers to lead this revival. Our prayer is that we'll see many souls saved and joining our local congregations, where they'll carry out the missions and ministries of our Lord and Savior. God is able, and He is surely up to something good!
God bless you this new year, and may you grow in your faith and faithfulness for His glory.
