We are the hands and feet of Jesus! Members of Salem are active in serving Jesus every day in our local community in many different ways! If you are looking for an opportunity to serve locally, we have options for adults, students, and families to get plugged in throughout the year, both on and off campus. This page will be updated often as needs change and new events are added throughout the year. Follow these links to learn more:
Why Local Missions?
"Working with MissionApex families gives me a way to reach out in my community and take another person's hand and make their day a little brighter. Giving children an opportunity to hear about what Jesus did for them because he loves them." ~Terry
"The love of Jesus is a blessing meant to flow through a person. I don't want to be that person where the blessing gets stopped up, because it turns out blessings flow both ways!" ~Tricia
"God spoke to me out of John 10—where Jesus teaches us He is the shepherd and we are His sheep. He also says He is the gate and we will come in and we will go out. The “going out” part is where God spoke to me—I was serving in the church but He also wanted me to go out into the community. I am not cool and my husband is not cool, nor do we want to be, but God calls and He equips. We have the privilege of teaching these young people [through Teen Club] that God loves them and has a plan for their life. We talk about Jesus and His kingdom A LOT. We love these crazy teens and tell them all the time that we do. We are two people in their lives who show up every week in the van—Thursday after Thursday—we keep showing up. I know that it’s not our efforts that make a difference, that it’s all God, yet somehow He uses us in this." ~Michelle
