Salem offers strong biblical education from competent teachers every Sunday morning during the school year for students from 3 years old through 6th grade. Children study God’s Word in relatively small groups divided by age. The groups are PreK-1st, 2nd-3rd grade, and 4th-6th grade, although the divisions are flexible. Salem members teach, usually individuals with teaching education or experience. One of the pastors opens each day and highlights the main idea of the lesson.
