Women's Ministry


Salem's Women's Ministry Mission

We prayerfully seek to glorify God by offering events and activities for our church and community that are Biblically focused and address the spiritual needs of women, support missions, and promote fellowship, thereby encouraging and strengthening each woman's relationship with Jesus Christ. Though prayer, God's word, and the power of the Holy Spirit, we desire to create a fellowship of women that serve others with compassion and love each other with a spirit of grace and forgiveness.

Barker-Howell Service Fellowship

Salem’s Barker-Howell Service Fellowship honors the two women who pioneered Salem’s Women’s Ministry and has glorified Christ through many years of thriving service and fellowship. Currently, the group blesses women and families in our church and community in several capacities. Monthly, they lead an open group that meets at Spring Arbor Assisted Living Facility on fourth Wednesdays at 10:00 am to share God’s word and music with the residents there through a “Sing-A-Long”. They also offer Bible studies at Spring Arbor, most recently in the Memory Unit. Each December, Barker-Howell Service Fellowship partners with the Raleigh Baptist Association's annual cake ministry, collecting and donating cakes to a local women's prison, blessing the inmates and their families with a rare time of fellowship around the holidays. Barker-Howell Service Fellowship also manages Salem's hospital equipment room which loans out medical equipment to members in need of those items, and when requested, organizes meals for families when funerals are held at Salem. Please contact the church office or Mary Lou for more information or to get involved.

Craft and Crop

Salem's Craft and Crop Ministry offers small and large-group crafting events, either on Friday evenings or all-day Saturday. This is a time when women can drop in and work for as long as they want on their crafting projects, which could be anything from scrapbooking to knitting, sewing, organizing photos, whatever you are working on. It's a great time to fellowship with other women of Salem while you finally get that project done! Questions? Contact Teresa
