This fall at Salt House, we are engaging with how we put love into practice. Our core practices help us practice love here, so we can practice love everywhere. In every relationship and place in our lives.

This summer, as the days get longer and our rhythms shift, we turn our attention to the questions that we often ask. And if we dare to 'really' ask them, they can form us and who we are becoming. Join us this summer at Salt House.

We have SO MANY questions! Join us on Sundays as we engage in the practice and diversity of prayer.
Time. We view it as a commodity. We say things like, "I don't have time" or "we have all the time in the world." And yet, there is a deeper reality. Life is more than just one moment blurring into the next. There are moments of significance that catch our attention, give us pause, and change us.
Let's be honest: How often do we have a default setting of NO - In the knee-jerk reactions we have to what's possible. To what we can do, try or experience. The snap judgements we make about who someone is, the ideas they have, what we think of them.
In the final days before Jesus is arrested, put on trial, tortured and executed - before all of that, he has a few, final revolutionary conversations with his closest friends. In one of them he says, "Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat.
Let's be honest. The holiday season is crazy busy. And in the midst of it all, we may find ourselves wondering why we jump through all the hoops and put on a happy face to make it "merry." Perhaps there's a better way.
One thing that we know to be true: change is the only constant. We will all keep living through change, but will be changed? At Salt House, that is our hope. So whatever chunk of change you're living through, let's cross over that threshold together.
We at Salt House aim to be a "school of love" for those who are living through all the ups and downs of life. We definitely don't have everything figured out, but we believe we are being formed into a community that follows Jesus with intention and heart.
When Jesus wants to tell us about God, he tells a story. Every time. This summer at Salt House we'll enter into our new sermon series: Love Story. Where is God in our stories - and how do we learn to listen to those surprising stories around us?
NEW SERIES - "AT THE TABLE" BEGINS APRIL 23 Jesus didn't give us a list of things to talk about, but gave us a meal to share. It makes sense that the first thing the world knew about Christians was that they ate together. And don't we want to be known for this, too?
Today (March 29, 2017) marks the 2nd birthday of Salt House. Here's a short video of Pastor Sara Wolbrecht leading us through several of our milestone moments. Two years ago we began this journey of becoming who God has called us to be. A lot has happened, especially in the last year!
Lent, the six weeks spanning Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, a word that means "spring," has for nearly two-thousand years been a season of spiritual spring-cleaning. A time to honestly examine who we are and who we are becoming. This season we're using a book on prayer by Justin McRoberts and Scott Ericsson called Prayer: Forty Days of Practice.
Here's an update from Pastor Sara about the vote for the long term shelter / land sale, next steps, and what you can do to get involved.

We at Salt House and Holy Spirit Lutheran Church are grateful for our partnership with the Mission Investment Fund of the ELCA. We borrowed money from MIF for our initial renovation of our space in 2015. And now we are being called forward on a grand adventure toward a bigger story that God is working in us and through us.

Advent 2016 at Salt House
Fall 2016 Series at Salt House - Jesus calls us to "love our neighbor as ourself" - yet we're living in a current political & cultural climate that throws around labels and blame to the very people Jesus calls neighbor. These are the very ones we are to love, to engage with, to invite to the table.
SUMMER SERIES at SALT HOUSE - LIVING IN THE FLOW: THE RHYTHMS OF GOD The current of God is one of constant motion toward all things being made new. Like a song or a river, we can hear and experience the movement. We are invited to jump in and live in the flow of the rhythms of God.

The Fresh Yes - Generous living flows from the Spirit of God as we (keep) say(ing) yes to the Jesus story.

The Jesus-story is one that turns our cultural story of scarcity upside-down. The Jesus-story invites us to forge a new story where we see the world through the lens of abundance.
