What to Expect

Welcome to Salem Baptist Church!

We are committed to connecting people to the life-changing Good News of Jesus – in our words and deeds. We desire to be a place where you can connect with God through His Word and music during worship, a church where people can connect with one another as family and friends of all ages and walks of life, and a body who connects with people in our community and around the world to meet real needs – especially the need for grace and living hope, which is found in Jesus Christ.

What happens on Sundays?

We are glad you asked! Sunday Worship is at 9:15am & 10:45am. Scroll down for some answers to common questions.

Are both worship services identical?

Both worship services are identical in music and message. Our pastor shares expository messages from God’s Word that both challenge and encourage. You’ll find that God’s Word has relevant applications to your daily life.

What type of music do you incorporate in worship services?

Music plays an important role in leading us to God’s throne. We have an awesome praise team and choir who utilize multiple live instruments during worship. You will sing powerful songs that will be a mixture of what you have heard recently on Christian radio to rich hymns.

How do you dress?

Sundays have a great mix of people who dress casually and who prefer to dress up. What you wear is really just up to your preference. Once you get here, you will find a group of people of all ages and backgrounds who would love to get to know you.

Is childcare available?

Childcare is available during both Sunday School and Worship services. A pager system is available for parents of nursery/preschool age children.

Are there Sunday School or small groups on Sunday mornings?

Sunday School is available at 9:15 am & 10:45 am. Sunday School is small group Bible study for all ages and stages of life. Multiple classes are available for adults to choose from. Children and youth options are based upon their age/grade.

What is the parking situation?

Ample parking is available with reserved guest spaces by the front entrances. There is also a covered drive for those who may need to be dropped off by the door.

Do you have hearing amplification?

If you need hearing amplification, it is available at the audio-visual booth in all services.

Additional questions?

Ushers and greeters are here to help every Sunday, should you have any questions or need special assistance.

Feel free to check out an archived video of past services to get a better feel for Sunday morning worship.
