The Adult Ministries at New Salem target the age range of early 20’s thru 90’s . Each ministry exists to teach and minister to adults in ALL seasons of life as well as allow opportunities to be of service to our Lord and our community. We have classes for adults, married couples, and our older & wiser adults.

For those blessed with musical abilities, we have a very active music department consisting of a choir, praise team, & cantatas during holiday seasons.

For those who desire to participate in evangelism, we have a Harvest Team that meets during Discipleship Training a few times per month. They do outreach and witness to our community to help our church fulfill the Great Commission.

For those who love to work with children, there is always a need for teachers and workers in our children, nursery, & youth ministries.

We have frequent activities together and favorites seem to be hiking or just sitting around a fire and talking!

Parents … get plugged in!

Greetings, parents of our fantastic youth! There is something to be said about the transformation of the parent heart. If you’re like us, you want to have the best for your child – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Our student ministry desires to help you to feed these teenagers spiritually. We realize that many parents want to be involved in small and big ways. We welcome you! Please take some time to surf this site so that you may better know your options of service. We as a church family would love for you to be able to use whatever gifts you offer to strengthen the student ministry here at New Salem.

We Do This Stuff Every Week.

  • Sunday Mornings:
    • 9:15 – 10:15
      Sunday morning is a time dedicated to building a caring community of faith. We offer weekly small group Bible study classes for students in grades 7 – 12, as well as large group teaching times periodically. The adult leaders for each grade are committed to sharing the love of Christ with students in such a way that they will grow in their love for God and love for people.
  • Sunday Nights:
    • 4:00 – 7:00
      Sunday nights are dedicated to Youth Drama and continuing discipleship training. Youth Drama (Blind Faith) begins at 4:00, followed by Youth Discipleship at 5:00 with a “snack” in between. At 6:00, the youth lead the congregation in worship in the sanctuary followed by a message.
  • Wednesday Nights:
    • 6:30 – 7:30
      The youth have their own worship service and group lesson designed to challenge Christ’s followers to deepen their faith and also introduce the person of Christ to students who may have never heard the Gospel. The night is never short on fun, and it is a great place for first time guests to get acquainted with other students and caring adults.

We Do This Stuff Every Year

  • Summer Camp
    • Camp is unlike any other event you will find at church, school, or elsewhere. Yes, we sing songs, have Bible studies, and play silly games, but there are no words to describe the incredible experience that happens in that short week. The teaching is relevant, the worship is authentic, and the fun is extreme. Our Jr. High (7-8 grades) attends Centrifuge, and our Sr. High (9-12) attends M-Fuge.
  • Mission Trip
    • Deep in the heart of New Salem’s Student Ministry is the desire to share the love of Christ with the world using words and actions. The summer mission trip gives students the opportunity to learn about missions and service through a week of hands on experience. Grades 9-12  travel to Belize to spread the Gospel message. The trip opens students’ eyes to see how God works around the globe, showing them new opportunities to serve. Students also gain a broader perspective of how God works in the lives of people across the world, and they develop hearts for service that God will continue to use beyond their time in the Student Ministry.
  • Disciple Now (D-Now)
    • Disciple now is an essential time of Bible study and true discipleship led by a solid speaker, sensitive worship leader, and knowledgeable caring adults as small group leaders. The weekend is also chock-full of fun activities that build community among the students. Happening mid-way through the school year, this event not only refreshes and encourages students to continue growing in their faith, but it also sets a tone of purpose and excitement for the spring semester.

The Pre-School & Children’s Ministry at New Salem is for bed babies through 6th grade. It exists to train children in the faith giving them a firm foundation for life. We focus on teaching God’s Word in such a way that they accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We believe a direct result of exposing the children of New Salem to His Word is that the Good News of Jesus Christ will go out into all the world!
