Good Afternoon Salem Evangelical Church Family,

We have been carefully watching the spread of COVID-19 within our church family.  We have a staff member with COVID-19 who has been ill since a week ago Monday.  We have three other staff, who were in direct contact with an individual with symptoms, and we are waiting to hear their test results.  Those three staff have been quarantined.

Due to potential exposure, we cancelled mid high and children’s programming this past Wednesday night to prevent further spreading of the illness.

Taking into account all safety and precautions, all classes, meetings and church services will not be meeting in person effective today through at least January 22, 2021.

We will livestream the 9:30am service each Sunday and my Wednesday night message at 6:30pm as we did this past Wednesday.  Zoom meetings are encouraged as an alternative.

Please pray for those who have contracted the illness.

Thanks for your prayers and words of encouragement.

In Christ,

Pastor Randy R. Butler
