  • Pack our pantry packs with summer snacks!

    Hunger doesn’t take a summer break! With an end to school lunches, a greater burden is felt by those families we support with our pantry pack program. Again this summer, we will be adding additional snacks for hungry kids to our pantry packs. We need your help! Throughout the month of June we will be collecting snack items. Please consider donating nonperishable snacks such as granola bars, pudding cups, fruit cups, and crackers to our summer snack food drive! Please place your donations in the donation boxes attached to the Pantry Pack Corner area, in the lower level of the church.

  • Salem is Officially an RIC Congregation!

    Salem Lutheran Church has been recognized by Reconciling Works (formerly Lutherans Concerned/North America) as the most recent Reconciling in Christ Congregation in Kansas. This comes after the congregation officially adopted the following public welcome statement in January of 2015. We, the members of Salem Lutheran Church, affirm the belief that we are all created in God’s image and are called to love one another as God loves us. We are a community that welcomes people of all ages, cultures, economic statuses, ethnic backgrounds, family blends, gender identities, physical and mental abilities, races, and sexual orientations. We seek to provide a safe and caring community where all people can grow in their faith. We encourage you to join us as we develop relationships with each other and discover the depth of God’s love for us all.
