SALEM CHRISTIAN EDUCATION BUILDING FOR SALE

The Salem Christian Education building located at 134-E-Broad-Street has been listed for sale with Prudential Realtors. The listing price is $699,999.00.

Like anything of this magnitude, it has many thoughts and emotions attached with it. Certainly it hasn’t been an easy decision.

Generations of our Salem family have participated in and enjoyed the use of the building. Over the years, though, it has become more expensive to maintain. The rent we received from Headstart and the Square Dancers wasn’t enough to offset the maintenance expenses.

Although a decline in Sunday School attendance over the years was a factor in listing the building, we will have Sunday School here at Salem. Anticipating the sale of the building, we continue to work with the Sunday School team here at Salem. Our thoughts at this time are to make accommodations in the Fellowship Room of the main sanctuary.

Other modifications will need to be made to accommodate some of the material that was in the office and for those that count the Sunday offerings.

The final sale of the building will require the approval of the congregation at a special Salem congregational meeting.

    Have you ever thought about cooking for Victory House of Lehigh Valley? They’re located on Fillmore St. They are a shelter for about 50 men. They ask for vilunteers to cook dinner for them. My yoga group volunteers once a month, but you don’t have to commit for that. You can only do it one and if it’s not a fit, then that’s ok. You can contact Jim Hogg at 610-691-3373.
