LENT 2021: HOPE IN DIFFICULT TIMES

Click the dates listed to view our Sunday Lenten Services. Worship recordings will be available after they are livestreamed and uploaded the following week. You can view Sunday morning worship live on Facebook at 8:45 AM or 10:45 AM. Gather with us via Zoom each Wednesday of Lent for a time of reflection and prayer. The women’s Bible Study has put together devotions for Lent. This project was coordinated by Brenda Binns and began with the women’s Bible Study but expanded beyond their group, to include both men and women. Five of these Lenten devotions will be shared on Wednesdays of Lent with a different message each week followed by a brief discussion/sharing and prayer time. This is in place of the Lenten Community worship we typically have each year.  Lenten Wednesday Worship Schedule:

DEVOTIONS FROM THE HEART (LENT 2021)

The members of Salem’s Women’s Small Group, with some help from family and friends, have prepared a devotional booklet to read during Lent. There are two or three readings, with Bible verses and prayers for each of the seven weeks of Lent. Devotions will be based on the weekly readings from the Revised Common Lectionary. Each contributor chose the passages for their devotions from the list of daily readings published for the United Methodist Church by the Vanderbilt Library.

Devotions are available in the traditional booklet form and may be picked up in the church lobby. Please call or email the office (570)-366-0201 or [email protected] if you have need printed booklets for yourself or others. Pastor Warner will videotape five of the pieces for use during the online Wednesday Lenten service. This is in place of the Lenten Community worship we typically have each year. You can view this week’s lenten worships and devotionals below. Or download the complete “Devotions from the Heart of Salem” Booklet. Thank you!
