Religious Events

Wednesdays, Now through August 31 Wednesday worship services have returned at the First Congregational Church and are offered through August 31. The summer is a busy time for families with many weekend commitments, often resulting in an attendance decline at area churches. This is the 16th year the church has met this challenge by holding this innovative service on Wednesday evenings. This mid- week service makes worship available to those in the community who may be away or unavailable on weekends. Shorts and sandals are welcome. The service begins at 7 p.m. A video series will be offered for children during the service. It is also preceded by a buffet supper at 6 p.m., so families and commuters don’t need to worry about providing a meal that night. The supper is a bargain at $3 per person or $8 per family. All are invited for Wednesday family worship in Fellowship Hall at the First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, located at 15 Lawrence Road, Salem. The church is wheelchair- accessible. For additional information, call 893-3421.
