GROUPS

REACH, DISCIPLE, SEND WITH THE GOSPEL

Groups at Salem

As followers of Jesus, we are told 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.  It looks like this simple drawing:

Life with God Life on Mission Life in Community - In Love

Disciples are not made in a classroom or in isolation.  Disciples are made as we live life together for God's glory.  

Our Life Groups balance pursuing Life with God together, Life in Community together, and Life on Mission together as each group reaches out to a specific group of people in our Metro.

Salem's Life Groups meet weekly for three sessions: Fall, Winter and Spring.  They are led by two or more co-leaders and most of the time will meet in someone's home.  Many share a meal together as part of their weekly meeting.  

Every member enjoys opportunities to connect with others and build relationships centered on the Gospel.  The Life Groups also spend time studying and applying God's Word together and praying for each other.  

One unique aspect of each Life Group is a shared commitment to reach out together to a group of people in the community they have identified.  The goal is to display the Gospel in both word and deed, in natural and caring ways.  

Life Group at Salem enjoying summer activities outside

During the summer months, most Life Groups do not meet regularly, but the friendships that were started remain throughout the year.  Sometimes the group will plan “get togethers” just to keep in touch.  

After each session, everyone is given a chance to either keep going with that Life Group, ask to try a different Life Group or indicate that they need to take a break for the next session.

We encourage everyone at Salem to consider making a Life Group a part of their life with God.

Prayer Ministry

Prayer is such a privilege and so important to a life of faith. Each worship service prayer ministers are available to pray with those in need of prayer.  

We also schedule several opportunities to pray with and for the people of Salem on a weekly basis.  

At certain times of the year we plan a time of prayer that helps us focus our prayers. 

If you want to check any of these out go to Salem's events page and see what is scheduled for this week.

Summer Fun Groups

Summer Fun Groups are made up of people with similar interests, hobbies, or activities that meet throughout the summer. 

It's a great way for new and seasoned Salem folks to build community by sharing fun times. This is also an easy way to invite a friend from outside the church to hang out!
