Our mission, which is modeled after Jesus’ words in Matthew 22, is to connect students to God and to each other.
In this passage, a man comes to Jesus and asks Him, “Which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus responds that the greatest is:
1. To love the Lord with all your heart and soul and mind
2. To love your neighbor as yourself
For us, we’re not content to simply provide activities for students. We at Salem desire that the activities, worship services and community service we do bring about real transformation in the lives of the students involved. Our hope is that each activity and event will ultimately help students develop a stronger connection with God and with others.
Sunday Morning Youth Ministry
Join caring faithful adults each Sunday in the Youth Room for in depth Bible study and meaningful discussion about issues of the day that connect your life with others and the power of Jesus.
The teens of Salem meet regularly for service projects, retreats and other events that come our way.
We have our annual Youth Sunday worship service every spring, usually around Earth Day. On Youth Sunday, the teens lead the worship music, readings, message and more. Please check out the Salem calendar to see what's coming up.
