FALL STUDY Coming Sept. 24 for 7 Weeks


This fall, Salem has been invited by Zion’s Senior Pastor, Brent Campbell, to participate in a new, congregation-wide study for 7 weeks entitled: Dialogues On - Race. Here is their advertisement: “It’s not news to anyone that we are living in a time of conflict, division and disagreement. In politics, in religion, in education, in relationships and communities and churches, we are becoming people who can’t seem to find our way out of the “us vs. them” pit of divisiveness. What we can do is learn from others and listen. And we will do that in a study where we will covenant with one another to listen and respect, but also open our minds to the reality of the world we share.”



This study will take place on Thursdays at 11am PT on ZOOM:  PRE-REGISTER

Or Thursdays at 7pm PT on ZOOM: PRE-REGISTER


Salem and Zion members will be invited to participate and Pastor Barsch and I will co-lead the morning study. Due to the time zone difference - Pastor Amie will lead the evening study alone.


If you want to participate in this study - please pre-register at the links above. It will be required that you purchase the Learner’s Book and read one chapter per week. The format of the class is to watch a brief video clip, read scripture and discuss one chapter of the Learner’s Book weekly.
