What to Expect

When you come through our doors you'll be in the gathering area in the back of the church (narthex).  You'll be greeted by the pastor and / or other worshippers.  You can expect to be handed a bulletin from one of our Service Attendants, which will lead you through the service and share some general church announcements. 


Where to Sit?

Feel free to sit wherever you'd like, whether the front or the back. If you need assistance an usher will help you.

What to Wear?

Some may prefer to "dress up" for church, as a way of showing honor and respect for the Lord.  But what matters most is the attitude of the heart.  So come as you are.  We aren't worried about what you're wearing. 

What About the Kids?

Kids of all ages are welcome at Salem. We encourage kids and their parents to grow in faith together as they hear God's word and sing his praise.  A few things to keep in mind as you bring your children:

    • In some services, the pastor will deliver a special "children's lesson" as part of the service.  This will generally come shortly before the sermon, at which time the children will be invited to come to the front of church for the lesson. 
    • Speakers in the Fellowship Hall (adjacent to the church sanctuary) allow you to follow along with the service if you need to step out with your child.
