Though a smaller congregation, Salem is an active ministry with a wide variety of pursuits and ways to be involved.


Adult Education and Bible Study

During the school year, Adult Education is held each Sunday morning at 9:40 am.  Consult the calendar for information about this week’s session. Adult Ed regularly includes Bible Study, congregational conversations (our chance for a check in and discussion about congregational life and ministry), and education (speakers or discussion) about specific issues. The Ecumenical Bible Study (folks from all three congregations) is meeting on Wednesday mornings at 8:00 am at SpringHouse.

Children’s Day Camp

For 8 years running, Salem has partnered with other neighborhood and local south Minneapolis congregations to offer a progressive, Christ-centered, ecumenical day camp. This year’s day camp had the theme Caught Up in Creation and was held in June at Bethel Lutheran on 17th Ave. S.

ZOOM House

Supporting the ministry of ZOOM House transitional housing program, located at 33rd Street and Blaisdell Avenue. For many years Salem has partnered with ZOOM House, supporting ZOOM House in a variety of hands-on ways throughout the season getting to know families, supporting their needs, and providing financial and material resources.


Salem does not have a choir that sings every week. We do, however, have many members (attending both Traditional Service and Discover Worship) who love to sing! Talk with musicians Tom Pieper or Kent Goodroad if you enjoy singing and would like to participate in worship music. Additionally, instrumentalists and vocalists are always welcome to share special music. Again, talk with Tom or Kent.
