Events happening at Shalom Lutheran and around the community of Harrisburg.
Message about worship practices
While we are practicing social distancing (or distant socializing), Shalom Lutheran continues to offer a worship service which is pre-recorded within the sanctuary. Our ardent hope is that you set up a home altar where you can place the bread and wine/juice for Holy Communion and watch the recorded worship. Links are sent to those on our mailing list, placed in public space on Shalom Lutheran - Harrisburg SD Facebook page, AND put on the home page of this website. Please share with those whom you feel would benefit from hearing a word of hope.
In addition, our thanks for the ongoing financial support to the ministries of Shalom Lutheran. Staff are still preparing preschool lessons and delivering them, sharing Christian Education links for doing a Home Sunday School, taking note of pastoral concerns in the congregation and community, and tending to the worship needs at hand.
Please reach out by phone or email if you would like to talk or connect. Regular office hours are M-F mornings, and by appointment.

Thank you for your generosity of heart, of resources, and of hope. God is good, indeed.
Pastor Trisha Boese
Loved by God, Forgiven in Christ,
United in Spirit, Sent to Serve.
Shalom Book Club meets one Sunday a month. January Book Club read is “American Dirt ” by Jeanine Cummins. The book club will meet in the Fireside Room, April 5th, at 10:10 am after worship.
American Dirt tells the story of Lydia Quixano Perez, a middle-class Mexican bookseller who flees Acapulco with 8-year-old son, Luca, after drug cartel violently attacks a quinceanera she’s attending, killing her journalist husband who earlier had profiled the cartel leader, Javier. Lydia and her son make the treacherous journey to the US on a freight train, befriending other migrants on their way.
