Christmas break provides a nice get away from the usual routine and Salem hopes that the all encompassing love of the Christ Child has refreshed and given renewed energy to both parents and students as Salem sets forth in 2011 to accomplish HIS tasks. Thursday, we celebrate Epiphany- the coming of the Wiseman- and that the “Good News” of salvation through Jesus Christ, is freely given to each person regardless of age, gender, origin or ethnicity. If part of your renewal for the New Year is a closer walk with Jesus Christ by being in His Word, please stop by the church or school office and allow us to be part of your journey.
