Children's Ministry

What an awesome honor and privilege to lead children in their walk with the Lord. Our desire at Salem Baptist Church is to see men and women and children become faithful followers of Christ. The church is here to work alongside parents in developing a spiritual foundation for their children.


SUNDAY SCHOOL: classes are available for all children. Sunday school begins at 9:15 AM. Our classes are staffed by men and women who love the Lord and desire to see boys and girls grow up knowing and loving God. There is a class for infants; 1, 2, and 3-year-olds; and 4 and 5-year-olds. There are also classes for children in 1st - 3rd grade and 4th - 5th grades.

WORSHIP SERVICE CHILDCARE: is for infants and preschoolers during the morning worship service. Children have a time of play, snack, and learning about God.

CHILDREN'S CHOIRS: meet every Wednesday evening from 6:15 PM - 7:00 PM, September through May. Preschool Choir is for children ages 3 - 5. Children's Choir is for children in 1st - 5th grades. The Children's Choirs sing several times throughout the year during the worship service. Each year they present a Christmas program and sing for worship in the spring.

CHILDREN'S DISCIPLESHIP: meet each Wednesday night from 6:15 PM - 7:00 PM, June through August, for 1st - 5th grade children. We learn about the Bible, God's holy word, and where and how to find verses and passages using a wonderful, fun curriculum.

It is a day filled with exciting activities such as Bible story, music, crafts, lunch, and an afternoon activity. Afternoon activities have included swimming, bowling, skating, the Virginia Safari Park, Homestead Creamery, dairy farm, and a visit to a buffalo farm.

SUPER TUESDAYS for Preschoolers: meets on the same days as the grade-school Super Tuesdays. Activities include Bible lesson, music, crafts, and much more (designed especially for 3, 4, and 5-year-olds).

CHILDREN IN MISSION ACTION: missions for children. They meet each Sunday evening from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM.  Children learn what God is doing around the world and how they can be a part of His wonderful work of salvation.

Summer camp provides children with spiritual development in a relaxed and exciting environment. Some of our past activities have included swimming, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding.
