Kids Connect

Kids programs at Salem are designed to work alongside families as each child begins their unique life-long journey of growing in Christian faith. Our nurseries welcome infants, toddlers, and preschoolers up to four years old. Our Kids Connect classrooms are designed for students Kindergarten through 6th grade. Our goal for kids of every age is to know that they are loved by God and by their church exactly as they are, even as they explore ways to learn, grow and share God's love with others.

For Sunday services, stop by the Kids Connect Check-In desk before worship to receive a security tag for your child(ren). You can save time by registering before your first visit, or we can help you register on-site when you arrive. Your child’s safety is critically important to us, so we want to know about any allergies or other special needs. Following each service, families pick up their children from their classrooms.
