AN ACT OF WORSHIP
Most churches include an offering as part of the weekly worship service. As we know, God does not need any of our time or our money. It is we who need to give it. We need to be generous. Offerings are one way to express our generosity and to express our devotion to God in an act of worship. Offerings are one of the ways we respond out of gratitude to God and remain faithful to the mission to which God is calling us.
GOD HAS GIVEN US EVERYTHING
God is our life, our hope, our future. Offerings to God are one of the ways his people worship and express their thanksgiving for God’s boundless love and grace.
WHERE YOUR OFFERING GOES
Weekly offerings supports the mission and ministry of Salem as well as local outreach to the community. Additionally, a portion of weekly offerings are designated by the congregation for the mission support of the Southeastern Synod of Minnesota and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) as we respond to ministry opportunities here and around the world to further the mission of this church.
If you have not received offering envelopes for 2020 and would like some, please call the church office.
