Cultivating a Passion for Christ

Youth Ministry

Set Apart Large Logo

Where God transforms students to be Set Apart for HIS GLORY!
(Based on Romans 12:2, 1 Peter 1:16, Romans 8:18, Matthew 25:31)

Vision statement:
(What we hope to see happen)
We desire for God to transform the lives of students to be set apart for His glory by students being personally discipled (Matthew 28:19), By students defending the Bible boldly (1 Peter 3:15), By students being excited about sharing the gospel and inviting their friends to Salem Baptist Church (John 4), By students proclaiming all the things God has taught them at Church (Matthew 28:20), By students serving Salem Baptist Church members and the community with love (Matthew 20:28), By students singing praises about how awesome God is (Ephesians 5:19), By students being content through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ so they can live out God’s purpose all the days of their life (Ephesians 1:3-14).


Sunday Morning: Sunday School begins at 9:45am.  Our focus on Sunday mornings is discipleship.  If you desire to grow more in your knowledge of Scripture, you must come Sunday mornings! We meet in the Youth House.

MFUGE: Each summer at MFuge students have an opportunity to grow in their faith.  They get to jump into ministry with a local community and serve people in need.  MFuge also has a camp atmosphere where students can learn more about the Bible and worship God.

At MFuge, Students are divided into groups for Bible study and ministry based on the type of work they request. Off-site ministry is facilitated within Bible study groups by a member of the trained FUGE camp staff, who also leads the Bible study. Ministry sites vary by location, but groups are trained and equipped for ministry through activities such as painting and yard work, facilitating activities with kids, or working in a homeless shelter. Adult leaders from our church accompany Bible study groups to the ministry site. Lunch is provided at ministry site. During the day, students will be challenged and stretched as individuals; in the evenings, they have an opportunity to build group unity over dinner, worship, fellowship and church group devotions.

MFuge is designed to give students a mission experience that opens their eyes to similar opportunities they may have to serve in their own communities, learning to live everyday life on mission!

Wednesday Night Youth Group during the school: Begins at 6:30pm and ends at 8pm.  Come join us for games, worship, message and small groups. Over the summer we do fun outdoor activities.
