“What’s Happening at Salem”
VBS is Coming in June
Salem’s Vacation Bible School Mighty Fortress is a week where kids learn God is their refuge and strength. Friends may fail them. They may not ace their test or make the team, but God promises to be their rock and salvation – their fortress and sure defense. So raise your banner! Our 2017 VBS shares five rock-solid Bible truths that excite and challenge them to know that in Jesus, the victory is won! Vacation Bible School is scheduled each day from June 5th to June 9th, nine a.m. to Noon each day. For more information check out our VBS 2017 page or contact Vacation Bible School Director Jen Pickens.
