Connecting and Serving Students in Grades 6-12 and their Families.

Salem Middle School and High School Youth are meeting on Sunday mornings from 10:10-10:50 and on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00! Check out the Youth calendar or email for more info!

Salem Youth Ministries partners with families and the wider church to connect students to one another and to Jesus Christ, and to help them grow in their relationship with Christ. Through experiential learning, worship, service, and fun, students are challenged and equipped to live a “whole life” faith that shapes every aspect of their lives.

Our youth program utilizes the Orange curriculum and program to our youth ministries. Orange focuses on relevant, biblical teaching, engaging small-group interactions and intentional connection with and resourcing of parents. Our goal is to have students open themselves to God’s ongoing work in their lives beyond their time with us at Salem. Special events throughout the year will offer opportunities for fun, discipleship, meaningful service, and for inviting friends to come to experience God’s love.

Over the past year, we have had the opportunity to rethink how we live out Salem Covenant Church’s mission of connecting, growing, and going. As we enter the fall season, that mission is at the center of what we hope to offer at Salem Youth Ministry. For everything we do:

  • Students and leaders will be required to practice social distancing, and practice good hygiene.
  • Students who are sick or who are at high risk should stay home and utilize online options.
  • All plans are flexible – in-person is preferred, but the back-up will be switching to an online YouTube and Zoom format for relational and spiritual development.

10:10-10:50 Confirmation 

10:10-10:50 High School Sunday School 

Wednesday

Over the past several months, we have had the opportunity to rethink how we live out Salem Covenant Church’s mission of connecting, growing, and going. As we enter the fall season, that mission is at the center of what we hope to offer at Salem Youth Ministry. As you already know, these plans are flexible and may change if needed. We strive to create an opportunity for students to grow in their relationships with God and others in safe and engaging ways.

Wednesday Evenings

The Middle School and High School  youth groups are Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8 p.m. and we would love to have you join us!

Confirmation

Confirmation is open by enrollment to students in grades 6-8. The purpose of Confirmation at Salem Covenant Church is to lead students to explore, engage in, and deepen their relationship with God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with God’s people through the ages and Christ’s Church around the world, with our local church community and denomination, and with the life, mission, and ministry God calls us together to share. We have three different confirmation classes – an Old Testament survey class, a New Testament survey class, and a Foundations of Faith class. Students must complete all requirements from all classes to be confirmed at Salem Covenant Church. Know that we want students to be confirmed at Salem and we seek to work individually with students to ensure they succeed!

Your confirmation teacher teams!

  • 1st Year (6th Grade): Karla Walker, Todd Rood, Denise Rood, Fred Syrdal
  • 2nd Year (7th Grade): Steve Walker, Russ Holsten, Christian Bauerecker
  • 3rd Year (8th Grade): Beth Nemec, Mark Nygaard, Pastor Mark Pattie
