WELCOME
Thank you for visiting our church's website. Here are a few details concerning some of our main activities planned for the summer. Do feel free to contact the church if you have questions about any of them.

SUMMER SCHEDULE BEGINS JUNE 4
Our summer worship schedule begins June 4. This means our Sunday morning worship service will begin at 9 o'clock starting on that day. We will continue at the 9 o'clock hour through September 3. The church's fall schedule will resume on September 10.

YOUTH S.A.L.T. TRIP TO ALAMOSA, CO
Several High School students from Salem and their adult leaders will be on a mission trip June 17 through 25. We call these S.A.L.T. trips. The acronym stands for Serving and Learning Together, and we use this term as a way of recognizing that we have much to learn about from those whom we serve. This year's S.A.L.T. trip will be to La Puente in Alamosa, CO, where the group will engage in the work of the social service center and homeless shelter there.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: July 16 through 20
The theme for Salem's 2017 Vacation Bible School program is "Egypt: Joseph's Journey from Prison to Palace." The event runs in the evenings, beginning with an optional dinner at 5:15 each night. The program itself begins at 6 PM and runs to 8 PM each night. The weeknights include "real life" dramas, games, tasty snacks, and music.  The Sunday evening (July 16th) is a family potluck picnic kick-off event to send us on our way.

BBQ (Backyard, Bible, and Questions): An Outdoor Summer Bible Study
Join us for 6 summer evening Bible study sessions exploring the Book of Mark. Participants will enjoy lemonade, summer breezes, and fellowship on the church patio as well as explore a portion of the Bible. The BBQ dates are June 14, June 28, July 12, July 26, August 9, and August 30. The time each evening is from 7 o'clock until 8:30. Please contact the church to register so we are sure to have plenty of materials.
