For all newcomers, here’s what the SALT schedule looks like each Monday:

  • 9:30-10:30 a.m.: first two programs (one in the Bays, one in the worship space/Sanctuary).
  • 10:30-11:00 a.m.: coffee/cookie break upstairs in the commons and downstairs in Resurrection Hall (elevator available). This will allow for extra space to spread out and to give participants more time to visit.
  • 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (Noon): second two programs (one in the Bays, one in the worship space).

$8 per person per Monday. Buy a Season Pass and Save! $30 per person for all four Mondays for the season!

The cost for the SALT sessions is $8 per person per Monday.

We are offering a “Season Pass” for $30 per person, which covers all four SALT Mondays. You purchase the “Season Pass” at the first SALT session of the season for $30/person, and you are good to go for the following three Mondays.

Celebrating 27 years of SALT! See general SALT information below:

Going into the 27th year, Seniors Learning Together, Inc., a non-profit organization, is offering enrichment learning to people over 55.  Sponsored by a coalition of 13 churches in Dakota County, the program is, however, open to people of ALL ages! Sessions are held on 4 consecutive Mondays every Spring and Fall. Our goal is to appeal to a broad spectrum of interests with 4 presentations on various subjects scheduled each day (2 speakers each hour). Participants choose one session to attend each hour. The first hour begins at 9:30 a.m. There is a 30 minute refreshment break between the first and second hour.

Give SALT a try, because . . . 

SALT is a wonderful program of enrichment learning made fun!  Our life enrichment presentations are offered to you in an enjoyable format.  There are no questions to answer or tests to take, but merely an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the world around us.

Call Marianne Brass at (952) 698-1714 or e-mail if you have questions regarding the SALT program.
