Worship is an act in which we both glorify and encounter God. For Christians, it is the most important communal act in which we participate, and it allows us to celebrate the love of God found in Christ Jesus. Through the hearing of the word, receiving of the sacraments, and being in community, God fills us with his Holy Spirit and nourishes us.
Salem’s interim location for worship is the Central Seminary in the beautiful Baugh-Marshall Chapel, located at 6601 Monticello Road in Shawnee.
We offer two worship opportunities on Sunday mornings:
- 8:00 a.m. — Traditional Worship Service: This worship service offers a traditional Lutheran liturgy, is accompanied predominantly by the organ and piano, and offers communion at the rail.
- 9:30 a.m. — Contemporary Worship Service: This service combines more traditional worship styles with contemporary music and worship styles. This worship service does not use specific liturgies, and music is led by our worship band. This service offers creative opportunities to offer our praise to the LORD and is much less formal than the traditional worship service.
First Sundays 9:30 a.m. Praise Worship Service: On the first Sunday of the month, we offer a praise service in place of the contemporary worship service. The praise service is intended to be more experiential and offers Christian praise music. Music and worship is led by our praise band.
Whatever style of worship you prefer, we would love you to join us as we come together before the LORD, singing his praises and making a joyful noise with gladness in our hearts.
