“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”

(John 10:10)

This was Jesus’ response to his observation that life, at times, can be filled with hurt, pain, and suffering.  The teenage years, for some students, can be very turbulent.  Our ministry at Salem Road is to help navigate this time of life for students as they prepare for life after high school.  The abundant life is not something students need to wait for, we believe they can have it now!

Youth Ministry

We are a ministry geared for students in 6th – 12th grade.  Our goal is for students to grow in grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.  We do this through weekly youth group meetings on Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 PM during the school year.  We also plan regular events throughout the year that have included climbing, bowling, winter retreat, volunteer at ReStore, mission trips, national youth conferences, summer camps, and supporting local businesses (ice cream and coffee shops). If you have questions, e-mail Youth & Family Pastor Joel Osterlund.

 Youth Group Has Started!


Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 pm, in the youth building.  Everyone starts together for large group activities, and then middle school moves to a classroom in the youth building.

    Contact Pastor Joel for more information.
