Visiting East Campus

We’re glad you’re thinking about attending a worship service at Salem East Campus in Moorhead.  Our church is a group of imperfect people who want to know and love God.  We have a diverse congregation of all ages and ethnicities and are always happy to welcome a new face.  We sincerely hope you will come and worship with us this Sunday!

Salem is one church, and we meet in two locations.  Our Moorhead campus which we call East Campus, has it’s own distinct flavor with two Sunday morning worship services.  While Salem has two locations, we as one church are committed to the same mission: to glorify God and make disciples.  Our Sunday morning worship services are a part of that mission as we take time to come together to worship as we sing, pray and hear great teaching from God’s Word.  We invite you to come and see what we are all about and join us in our mission!

  • When do I need to get there?
    Arrive about 10 minutes early to make your way in, get a cup of coffee and find a comfortable seat. 
  • Where do I park?
    East Campus has a spacious parking lot that has plenty of parking spaces on all sides of the building. Most people new to Salem find parking on the east side of the building near the main entrance to be the most convenient.
  • What should I wear?
    Wear what is comfortable for you. God doesn’t care whether you are formal or casual - He looks at the heart!  We are just happy to have you come!
  • What is the worship service like?
    Salem is a welcoming community of believers where you are welcome! The worship team leads us in singing, followed by prayer, teaching from God’s Word and a final response to God in song.
  • How long is the service?
    The worship service is usually 70-75 minutes.
  • Is there childcare available?
    Child care is available for ages birth - 23 months during the service in our nursery, which is located between the kitchen and the Children’s wing.  Our ushers or greeters can help you find the Children's wing.

Parents have been entrusted with children by God.  It is their responsibility to raise them to know, love and serve the Lord.  Salem seeks to come alongside them to help them in this endeavor.  During this ceremony, parents and Salem pledge their mutual support as they together bear witness to God and his son Jesus, praying that one day their child will become a lifelong disciple of Jesus.

AWANA Sparks

This is a 3-year program for Kindergarten - 2nd grade children. Each evening consists of Game Time, Handbook Time and Counsel Time.

Throughout the year there are special nights—Backwards Night and Crazy Hair Night, just to mention a few.

iExplore

This is for 3rd and 4th graders. Here children will get an overview of the New Testament by focusing on Matthew and Acts. We begin the evening in small groups where kids get to know each other and begin to focus on the evening’s lesson. Then we enjoy some gym time. The evening ends all together in large group time. During the winter we enjoy preparing and holding a pinewood derby style race night. Each car has a theme from Matthew or Acts.

Motiv8

5th/6th will begin the evening with conversation, an ice-breaker activity and a large group lesson. Following all this is small group time where kids can interact with their leaders about the message of the evening and other things that are on their mind. The evening will finish in the gym. From time to time we are involved with service projects at Great Plains Food Bank and Open Doors 65. Each summer, the children have opportunity to experience a week-long service project in Minneapolis.

Child Baptism

When a child has come to personal faith in Jesus and has given evidence of this faith and desires to make public confession of this faith, we will baptize him/her.

Students

Students in 7th through 12th grade join together for Sunday school classes in the youth room.

Wednesdays

6:30 - 8:40 pm at East Campus Campus
This is a weekly gathering of students, in grades 7-12, for games, praise & worship, teaching, and small group accountability & prayer. Students from both of our campuses join together as one in one location on Wednesday evenings.

Students

Welcome to Salem Student Ministries! Thank you for taking the time to stop by and learn more about who we are and why we’re here. It is our goal to see each student grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. As the students gain a deeper understanding of who God is and how much He loves them, they will be motivated to live and serve Him in this world

Sundays at East Campus

At Salem we believe the Bible is our guide in life, and we are passionate about nurturing a biblical worldview in our youth. They are best served by learning to interpret the world around them through the clear and accurate lens of God’s truth found in Scripture.

One of the primary ways we assist students in establishing and growing a biblical worldview is through Sunday School Classes. Each week students gather at each campus to learn from God’s Word through our “Live Curriculum” (Group Publishing) materials. 7th and 8th graders go through a survey of the Old and New Testaments, 9th-12th graders cover Bible survey classes, theology, apologetics, and training for practical application of biblical principles to daily life.

Sunday School for grades 7-12 meets in the youth room at East Campus at 10:30 am. Please join us!

Wednesday Evenings Combined at East Campus

Wednesday night gatherings are another large component of grades 7-12 Student Ministries; this is a time for fellowship and growth through praise and worship, teaching, small group accountability and prayer, and games. Pastor Josh teaches from God’s Word, both the Old and New Testaments, offering messages that are both practical and doctrinally sound. Students also have time to process and mentally solidify the teaching through discussion in small groups that are both gender and age specific (ex. 7th grade boys, 11th grade girls, etc.). Wednesday sessions are from 6:30-9:00 pm at East Campus Campus in the youth room.

Groups

As followers of Jesus, we are instructed to live out our faith in pursuit of loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves. This is often referred to as the Great Commandment. Likewise, we are told by Jesus to go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them and teaching them to obey His commands. This is often referred to as the Great Commission.

At Salem we have a number of great opportunities for you to gather together with others to grow as disciples who are learning to live out these gospel truths in the rhythms of life.

Life Groups

Life Groups are Salem’s primary way of making disciples who can Reach-Disciple-Send with the Gospel. Life groups consist of 6-30 adults and their children. They are based on living out both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.
