“What’s Happening at Salem”
Salem has begun its nine-month long study of The Story which takes place each weekend at 5 p.m. Saturday and 8:00 & 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The Story is Salem’s church wide experience that unites and equips participants as they engage the Bible. Reading like a novel, The Story features a seamless, compelling narrative. Condensed into 31 easy to read chapters, The Story sweeps readers into an unfolding chronological progression of Bible characters and events. The goal is to have every man, woman and child at Salem participate. Key elements of The Story at Salem are sermons, Bible studies, family devotions and personal reading. To learn more please visit The Story page.
