First Communion education will be taking place in March! Be sure to get your student registered - or if you'd like a refresher, you're welcome to come and participate as well! The first session will be done at home with your family (and the help of a painted chalice kit). The second session will be done at Shalom Lutheran on Monday, March 22nd as we bake communion bread together in the fellowship hall.
First Communion Worship will be on Wednesday, March 31st at 7:00 pm

We are asking folks to still mask for worship.
We will be offering coffee/rolls in between our 9am and 10:30am worship service.

Shalom is looking to renew their lights in the sanctuary and gathering space in PHASE ONE (out of three) of our new lighting campaign "Let your Light Shine". The new bulbs will be more energy efficient, will make the spaces brighter, and will be lower maintenance.
EDIT: Phase 1 has been exceeded! We're moving into fundraising for Phase 2 already due to your generous donations. Wouldn't it be amazing to achieve all 3 phases by Easter? EVERY dollar makes a HUGE difference. Thank you for all you are doing.
There are various ways to contribute to the program: Cash/checks are always welcome - just be sure to indicate "Let your Light Shine" so we know where to direct that gift. OR you can give electronically by clicking this link and choosing your amount
