“What’s Happening at Salem”
Coming in September:
The Story is an eight month congregation wide emphasis on God’s plan for our salvation revealed in the Scriptures. Each week highlights a chapter of an abridged chronological Bible that reads as if it’s a novel. Scripture segments are woven together into a single grand narrative. The Story helps you understand God’s Word more fully and will help you mature in your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Salem invites you to pray each day for God’s blessings as we prepare to hear The Story beginning Sunday September 10th. To learn more please visit THE STORY page.
