Hopscotch is a game that you can play with many people and it involves hopping around to different areas on a grid drawn on the ground. On Hopscotch Sundays, we will not actually be playing this children’s game, but we will use these Sundays to mentally “jump around” and engage a variety of ages in a special project or learn about specific theological topics in greater depth. “Hopscotch” Sunday simply indicates that our Sunday morning schedule will look a bit different that day. Currently, we have 5 Hopscotch Sundays planned for the 2019-2020 school year:
Dec. 1 @ 9am, Ornament Sunday, PreK-Grade 12 & Families
Jan.5 @ 9am, Stewardship: Review Advent Mission Project, PreK-Grade 12
Feb. 23 @9am, Understanding Lent, All Ages
April 5 @9am, Palm Sunday Pilgrimage, All Ages
April 26 @9am, God & Creation: Celebrate Earth Day, All Ages

Vacation Bible School
It is a fun and rewarding experience for participants and volunteers alike.
Usually held the third Sunday of December
We often have a "Community Searchlight" series of presentations from the community and discussion on how we at Salem can best engage with our neighbors- guests have included the Verona Police, school counselors, and BPNN volunteers- check the calendar for our next discussion!
This is when the children of our church make ornaments to decorate our Christmas tree.
