As the season of Epiphany comes to a close and we begin to prepare ourselves for Lent, we would like to take the time to celebrate the presence of our Lord Jesus with the celebration of the Eucharist on Saturday, February 10th from 5-7 p.m. This will be Salem Anglican’s first ever celebration of the Eucharist together. Father Kyle Archibald, a chaplain with the Army reserves, will be preaching and presiding. A special BBQ dinner will be provided for this special event. Instead of the usual evening prayer service, we will be celebrating the Eucharist instead. I hope you can come and celebrate with us.
Salem Anglican meets Saturday nights, from 5-7 p.m., at the home of our church planters, Rev. Jason & Angi Clark. At each meeting we serve dinner, answer your questions, and pray together with the liturgy for evening prayer. The address is 5137 Jones RD SE, Salem, OR, 97306. The house is at the end of an easement so it may not be easy to find on your first pass. You can park on Jones RD or you can also drive down to the end of the easement where we can accommodate parking for 4-5 cars. If you have children, please bring them. If your child is old enough to sit through evening prayer, we encourage them to do so. If your child would be better served by being entertained, we will entertain young children in a separate room. We will implement a discipleship program for children when we get a better idea what our needs are.
It is my hope that meeting at a private residence will not create a barrier for anyone to attend. You are welcome in our home. Our goal is to meet in a public space as soon as we are able. We also look forward to the day when we will meet around the Lord’s Table for a celebration of the Eucharist. The ultimate goal is a new church plant that meets on Sunday mornings and celebrates the Eucharist every week. For now, Saturday nights will allow anyone to become part of our new community while still remaining free to continue attending the church of their choice on Sunday morning. I personally look forward to meeting you.
May the peace of the Lord be with you,
Rev. Jason Clark
