October 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: Life is full of milestones, isn’t it?  And I would say that a majority of those milestones occur during the first 18 years.  We’re getting close to one of those milestones with our grandson Ryder who can crawl like a little army tank, but who is also real close to taking…

SEPTEMBER 2016 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: Back on July 24 Pastor Perry preached a sermon here that dealt with the subject of prayer.  Earlier that week he had asked me for some specific answers to prayer that different people in our church had received recently, so I shared a couple of them with him.  But the day…

July and August 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: It’s a story that most of us learned when we were just young children. And because that story was found in the Bible and because we had the faith of a little child, we never doubted it. We believed it and accepted it as one of the most important events the…

June 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: So what are you afraid of? I’ve been asking that question of people lately, even some of my fellow pastors in the Salem Ministerial Alliance, and I’ve been hearing some of the usual and some not-so-usual answers. Snakes seem to be at the top of the list. As many of you…

May 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: Have you ever heard someone say, “They just don’t make things like they used to”?  Perhaps you’ve said that yourself.  I know I have, especially recently.  Let me explain.  A couple months ago our 5 or 6 year old refrigerator began to beep.  The beeping sound was caused by a built-in…

April 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: I would imagine most of you have heard of Murphy’s Law. And if you haven’t, I’ll bet you’ve experienced it a time or two.  Basically, Murphy’s Law states: “What can go wrong, will go wrong.”  If you’ve ever had a day where Murphy’s Law is in effect, you have quite possibly…

March 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: If my mom could see me now, she would be nothing short of amazed.  Why, you might ask?  Because the child she gave birth to on August 11, 1955 (yours truly) is not the same person he was when he was growing up.  Let me explain. For as far back as…

February 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR DONALD’S DESK:  It’s hard to believe that I’m writing my final newsletter article for Salem Lutheran Church.  It’s kind of weird to be sitting in my office with nothing really hanging on the walls, and fewer and fewer books sitting on the shelves.  This past Sunday I thought about how it was my…

January 2016 Newsletter

FROM PASTOR DONALD’S DESK:  In August I made a decision that sometimes I think was great and other days I wonder what I was thinking.  That big life altering decision was adopting a 3-month old German Shepherd/Labrador mix.  Since that day in August my life has been a lot different.  I now have somebody happy…
