Ascension Worship At Salem

[Jesus said,] Do not let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to be with me, so that you may also be where I am.
(John 14:1-3)

And while he was blessing them, he parted from them and was taken up into heaven.
(Luke 24:51)

On Maundy Thursday, the night Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper, He spoke of His returning to Heaven and to God the Father. He told His disciples that after His death and resurrection He would ascend into Heaven to prepare a place for all believers. Forty days after Easter, His resurrection from the dead, Jesus did just that. In the sight of His disciples and apostles, He ascended into Heaven. Ten days later, on Pentecost, He sent them the promised Holy Spirit.

At Salem, on Thursday, May 26, at 6:30 pm, we will be gathering around the Word of God for a special worship service celebrating the Ascension of Our Lord. Please come and join us in Worship of the Resurrected and Ascended Jesus who will come again to bring all beliveres into the glorious Heaven He has prepared.

Vacation Bible School

VBS Logo

Salem is once again hosting a VBS for the week of July 25-29, 2022, at 9:00am to 11:30am each day, for all youth, age 3 through 8th grade, in our community. There is no cost for registering your children nor any obligation to join the church. VBS is a week long summer school, where the children are taught Bible history lessons, put together craft projects, and have fun with fellow children from the neighborhood.

To enroll your children, please fill out the Pre-Registration Form below and return it back to the church at the address above. You can also bring the form the opening day of VBS. If you need extra copies of the form or help with filling it out, contact Pastor James Seiltz, who will be glad to help you and to answer any questions you may have about our VBS. Please note that even if your children are not able to attend the whole week, we still would love to have them join us for VBS.

Salem Ev. Lutheran Church is located two blocks south of Garden of the Gods Road on Chestnut Street on the west side of the street. Garden of the Gods Road is the exit off of Interstate 25 on the north west side of the city. For more information, please contact Pastor James Seiltz (719-599-0200 or seiltzjv@gmail.com).
