We want to see YOU in action!
If you are in any sports, concerts, plays, etc... please leave Eric of Allyssa your schedule so we can attend. Make sure your name is on the sheet along with the field or room where you will be and the times. We’ll try to get to them all, but the earlier we get them the better! Also, your event will be put on the calendar in the Youth Room.
If you want to stay informed with announcements and emails, please either give me your email so I can put you on my email list, OR become a fan of our Facebook Page “Salem's Youth Page” and watch for updates. Also watch the bulletin each week and the Youth Board located across from my office to stay up to date! If there is ever anything I can do for you, let me know! I have a TON of resources on all kinds of topics and would love to help in any way I can!
