We invite anyone and everyone to attend our Sunday Gatherings as we celebrate God in song, Scripture, communion, and prayer.
Sundays at 8:30 and 9:45 am
Sundays at 11:00 am
Is this your first time?
When you enter our building, please feel free to introduce yourself to our greeters and let them know that you are new. We would be happy to help you find the Nursery, classes for your children, answer your questions, or just welcome you. If you are attending the Traditional Service, the Sanctuary will be to your left as you enter the main doors. The Contemporary Service is located in the Gymnasium which is to the right as you enter, just past the coat racks.
Looking for more information?
Located in the Narthex, the Welcome Center is staffed before and after our Sunday morning worship services to answer a broad range of questions. In the kiosk by the coat racks, you can find information and the locations of children, youth, and adult programming, as well as pick up the latest newsletter, ministry brochures, and other printed materials. Signups for an event taking place at Salem Covenant Church are located at the bulletin board behind the Welcome Center.

What Do We Believe
A Word About Our Faith
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct. The Word of God is “spirit and life” and therefore requires of us a living response. This response involves a commitment to the person of Jesus Christ and a dedication to follow him as Lord. Our church recognizes but transcends theological differences through sharing a common life in Christ. We hold to and observe the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe in the Gospel for the whole person and the whole world. Such concern for wholeness finds expression in evangelism, in Christian education, and in joining in God’s loving, redemptive work in the world, beginning in the community in which our church is located. We welcome into membership all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

NOTES about Children’s Ministry on Sundays:
Rooted Children’s Sunday School—9:45-10:45 a.m.
Children (Age 2–Grade 5) will connect and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ as they study The Big God Story through prayer and response activities designed to encourage children to think about how God is at work in their own lives. Check your child into and out of their age-specific classroom. All children need to be picked up by an authorized guardian.
Flourish Preschool and Children’s Worship—11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Children will learn about The Big God Story and engage in play-based activities that illustrate the Bible lesson. Age 2 meets for the entire hour. Age 3–Grade 2 should be checked-in at the station outside the Gym and will be dismissed from the service to age-specific classroom. All children need to be picked up by an authorized guardian.
Salem’s Sanctuary has a hearing loop installed beneath every pew.
What is a hearing loop?
A hearing loop helps persons hear sounds from an audio system directly and clearly in their hearing aids, because it reduces or cuts out background noise. It provides a wireless signal, called an induction loop, that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. The loop system uses the existing microphone system to pick up the spoken word; an ampliﬁer which processes the signal; and the loop cable, a small wire placed throughout the Sanctuary.
How do I get it to work?
If you have a telecoil — a small metal rod wrapped in wire — in your hearing aids or cochlear implants and switch to the “T” setting, you will hear as if you are connected wirelessly to the sound system. There’s no ambient noise, and the sound doesn’t have to travel all the way from the chancel to your pew.
