Children's Ministry at Salem is a partnership between parents, staff, and ministry volunteers. We know it can be a challenge to find time to engage in faith-forming activities at home. Many parents and grandparents want to share their faith with the children in their lives, but it is hard to know where to begin. Check out these resources you can use at home to speak about faith and Biblical lessons with your children.
