Children 3 years old and up are invited to participate in Sunday School. Salem shares our vital Sunday School program with Lyndale United Church of Christ and First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), with students and teachers drawn from all three congregations. Sunday School begins at 9:15 am with a large group gathering (singing, introduction, offering) and then time for individual classes. We use a rotation model, focusing on a Bible story for 2 or 3 week blocks, exploring the story from a different vantage each week. We rotate between arts, drama, and activities like science, cooking, or games. We use the SPARK Story Bible for our younger children. During the summer months there is an optional Sunday School program called Arts of the Covenant which meets at 9:15 am.
Middle School Group and Youth
The Middle School Group/Youth Group meets weekly on Sunday mornings for Sunday School. As with the younger kids, the youth of the three churches are getting to know one another well and have formed an always-evolving and fun-loving group. On Sunday morning, discussions and activities tend to focus around faith and issues. Other activities include lock-ins (as many as possible), service projects, a youth led worship service, summer camp, preparing Easter breakfast, and plenty more.
