Salem's kids

Open to all children ages 3 through 6th grade, Salem's Kids offers a time for worship, projects, songs and prayer each week. Showing and sharing God's love is our weekly mission! While children enjoy class from 9:30-10:25, parents are welcome to enjoy coffee in our coffee lounge or take advantage of bible study and other ministry opportunities!


Also, we LOVE and NEED volunteers to make each week special and meaningful for our kids. Please prayerfully consider what you can do to help Salem's Kids grow in their faith! If you would be interested in volunteering, click here.
