Growth Groups

Growth Groups at Salem is a way that you can get to know your faith family while growing closer to Jesus.

Groups consist of 8-12 people who meet 2-4 times per month to dig deeper into the sermon text, pray together, study God’s Word and discuss how it applies to life.

They are designed to be a place where you can foster meaningful friendships and mature in faith as you are gathered in Christian fellowship around the Word of God. No matter your background or level of biblical knowledge, this is a place of connection and growth!

If you are new to Salem, your first step is to connect with one of our pastors and consider joining our Intro to Christianity group.

If you are already a member looking to get connected with a Growth Group, email growthgroups@salemlutheran.org. Don’t see what fits your needs? Contact us! New groups can be formed mid-season.

Youth Small Group • time TBD • online • grades 7-10

Middle school is a time where students begin to be independent thinkers and often ask questions about the things they have been taught to believe. At Salem we welcome those questions! This is a space where students will connect with their peers, be able to ask honest questions about their faith, learn about Jesus and how to apply His teachings to their lives. We celebrate when students can put their faith in their own words!
