Salem St. Paul's Lutheran Church News

SSP's last council meeting was held on Aug. 8. The council voted to support Adam Jablonski's Eagle Scout project with a financial contribution. They are all anxious to see "The Faith Garden" when completed, as it will provide a beautiful place for prayer and reflection.

They are also looking for someone with website design talent. They would like to create their own Web page, and need help. Please talk to the Rev, Scheffey if you can help with that church project.
