SUNDAY MORNING SALEM KIDS MINISTRY PROGRAMMING

Birth - PreK will have dynamic age-appropriate programming throughout the morning. Birth - 3yrs begins at 8:30am, while PreK and older children will join their families for worship in the Worship Center. Full programming Birth - PreK will be available during the 9:45 am Connect Time and 11 am Worship Time in the downstairs portion of the Community Center.  Kids are split into age-appropriate groups where they have worship, an interactive Bible story time, along with a variety of small group activities that all tie back to their main Bible story for the week.  Birth-PreK will check-in downstairs at our Welcome Desk on the west side of the Community Center.   

Kindergarten through 4th grade starts with Connect Time at 9:45 am with fun, engaging Bible study and activities in an age-appropriate format.  Kids then stick around for a vibrant Salem Kids Worship Service at 11 am. Kids will start in small group classes then move into Worship time in Second Stage.  Kindergarten - 6th grade will check-in upstairs at our Welcome Desk located on the East side of the second floor of the Community Center.  


Fifth through Sixth grade have age-appropriate programming during the 9:45am Connect Time where they dive into God’s word together as well as participate in activities that tie them back to the solid foundation of Christ.  At 11 am, this group engages in a casual small group atmosphere with their own worship opportunity. Through discussion and team-building activities, they will build community with each other and God. There are also several service opportunities on a Sunday morning where 5th and 6th graders can plug in using their God-given gifts.
