Salem Lutheran Church Deerwood MN – a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) – is a church alive with vibrant ministries, worship and a commitment to “love and serve God by loving and serving people.”  Come as you are, but know that the God of Jesus Christ loves you too much to leave you that way.  He wants to mold you, shape you, and use you, so that you can make a difference in his name. Come grow with us!  A good place to begin is worship on Sunday mornings.
“Select from among yourselves seven men of good standing, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may
appoint to this task,… They had these men stand before the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them.”
Acts 6:3, 6

Upcoming Events And Announcements

We too often write of what is wrong with our community. Salem WEST was burned by an arsonist on March 1 and is a total loss. Salem WEST is the outreach facility of Salem Lutheran Church in Deerwood and has provided support to individuals and families in our community, free of cost, for 25 years. Yes, the act was evil, but this community has reached out to support this ministry beyond what words can express. Donations of time, talent, items and money—overwhelming. We are describing the support as “being steamrolled by love.” Thank you for such concern for our mission in the Brainerd lakes, we are up and running in temporary locations and we will rise from the ashes. We are told that God uses all situations for good, you have certainly proved that true. We are humbled by the response of this community.


We are overwhelmed by the outreach of love and concern.  We are doing our best to keep up with all the calls and donations.  If you have contacted us and have not heard from us, please know that we appreciate your love and support and we will be contacting you just as soon as we can. We continue to support families that need our help.  However, we need to build up our inventory that we lost.  All donations will be received at Salem Lutheran Church in the Fellowship Hall from 8:30 am to 3:30 p.m.  Please call us at 218-534-4962 with questions or for pick-up.
