Salem Students is meeting in person and online!
Each Wednesday at 6:30-8pm, we are meeting in person. These meetings will be live streamed during our regular worship service.
Email Pastor Russ for login info. Be sure to keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram @salemstudentsNC for the latest and greatest information for Salem Student Ministry.
We want our students to experience four things
- Spiritual Growth - I will know and live God's word because it is our authority for life and faith.
- Worship - I will be all in for His glory because Jesus gave it all.
- Community - I will commit to christian, biblical community, because God wants us to reflect Jesus in our relationships.
- Outreach - I will share Jesus with my friends because people being saved matters to God, so it matters to us.
At SSM, we long to know and live God’s word, be all in for his glory, grow together in Christ, and share Jesus with friends. For us, we want the teenagers in Surry County to have a place to belong. Community is heavily emphasized because we believe that Christians are made for biblical community!
Salem Student Ministry exists to make Jesus famous and to equip students to own and share their faith. While there are many fun and exciting events, everything that is done falls under the thrust of knowing and living God's word, growing in Christ, and sharing faith. A typical Wednesday night consists of snacks, games, fellowship, a time of teaching from the Bible, discussion, and prayer.
Salem Student Ministry meets on Wednesday evening from 6:30- 8:00 in the Student Room (E121). There is a Sunday school classes available during the Sunday school hour at 9:15 in the Student Room (E121).
One thing we stress is that students are not just the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today. In light of that, the desire is to see students involved in the life of the local church, serving and using their talents for the glory of God, and sharing their faith with their peers. By the time a student graduates, the hope is that they have made a personal decision to follow Jesus and they are actively owning their faith by growing in God's word, serving in the church, and sharing Jesus with their peers.
