15 years ago, Iglesia Luterana Cristo Para Todos arrived at Salem, Springdale. For a few years we shared facilities, until we realized that we would better as a unified church. Praise God for his work to unite our congregations together! Today Salem Lutheran Ministries is a bilingual, multiethnic church.
In Latino culture, a 15th birthday is a huge celebration called a quinceañera. Since this was our church’s 15th anniversary, we celebrated in a large way. On August 27, Rev. Tardelli Voss, the church planter and first pastor of the Hispanic congregation, preached at all our divine services. After the services, we enjoyed a large lunch and celebration.
This celebration gave us the opportunity to remember God’s goodness, celebrate his grace given to us through Jesus Christ, and praise him for his faithfulness!
