Salem’s Sports Ministry offers sports and activities
for both adults and children!

The benefits of movement are great no matter how young or old you are and the fellowship of others is important for our social-emotional well-being. Scripture also tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:19 that our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and that we should care for our bodies well as that is the vessel through which God works. 

Game Ready. Life Ready. for Children

The Bible teaches us in 1 Timothy 4:8 that “physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” With this lens, Salem’s Game Ready. Life Ready. sports curriculum is designed to not only build a solid foundation of physical movement skills, sport understanding, and love for athletics but incorporates lessons from the Bible that shape athletes’ character and faith as they live that out in sports and life.

Our four-sport children’s program—soccer, basketball, T-ball, and pickleball—is designed for elementary-aged children. Our curriculum developer and Sports Ministry Director, Shelli Streeper, has 20 years of professional youth coaching experience, from traveling to recreational sports programs. Given her passion for incorporating faith in sports and for fostering a love for sports at an early age, she has found her niche in Salem’s Sports Ministry programs!

Yogadevotion Class Online

Tuesday evenings  ||  6:00-7:00pm  ||  $72

8 week session via Zoom

Yogadevotion is a practice of breath, prayer, and movement led by a trained yoga instructor.

Yogadevotion helps to encourage healthy living, a peaceful presence, and centering ourselves in the Presence of God…setting aside all that distracts us from the relationship God intends for us.

Getting up and down off the floor can be difficult for many reasons. This Yogadevotion class incorporates poses that increase range of motion, improve balance, and bring attention to the breath, all using a chair as yoga props.

Contact Sue Pederson at spederson@salem-covenant.church for more details.

Sharing the love of God with joy!
