Global Missions

In response to our Lord's command to make disciples of all nations, we strive to involve as many members as possible in mission activities in this and other countries and to make our members aware of mission needs throughout the world.

We support : 

1. Specific Missionaries.  Nicolette and Ari Benoit in the Philippines, Chris & Kristin McWeeny and family in Cuenca, Ecuador, Paul & Jennie Minter in Papua New Guinea, Pastors Moises & Mariana Mendez in Laredo, Texas, and Abid and Janet Rangoolwala in the Twin Cities

2. ELCA World Hunger Campaign. Salem is one of the leading congregations in the ELCA to support World Hunger!

3. Fair Trade Coffee. We sell fair-traded coffee to support small farmers in developing countries. Salem also served fair-trade coffee at each of its fellowship hours.

4. Informing members of Salem of our Synod’s relationship with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in South Africa, our companion Synod, and participating in the fund raising activities for that church and inviting visitors from South Africa to Salem whenever possible.
