  • Craft Circle Ministry — Jan. 28

    Salem Craft Circle Ministry will be discussing our spring service project event — “Lutheran World Relief School Kits” — at our next meeting on Monday (01/28) at 7:00 p.m. in Koinonia Fellowship Hall. For many students around the world there are numerous barriers to getting a good education. Simply purchasing school supplies such as pencils and paper can be too great a cost for many families. Education is one of the strongest tools a community has for breaking the cycle of poverty. School kits contain essential supplies to help children — and in some cases, adults — continue learning in the face of serious obstacles. That learning leads to a better life for them, their families, and their communities. Contact Kathy Kostroske (913-888-3233 or KLJK278@gmail.com) if you have any questions. The Craft Circle Ministry meets on the fourth Monday of every month.

We, the members of Salem Lutheran Church, affirm the belief that we are all created in God’s image and are called to love one another as God loves us. We are a community that welcomes people of all ages, cultures, economic statuses, ethnic backgrounds, family blends, gender identities, physical and mental abilities, races, and sexual orientations. We seek to provide a safe and caring community where all people can grow in their faith. We encourage you to join us as we develop relationships with each other and discover the depth of God’s love for us all.
