Salem Connect is Salem’s small-group ministry in which participants connect with one another in a relaxed environment, where faith is shared and friendships grown. Salem Connect will run from September 2020 through May 2021. Due to COVID-19, Connect gatherings will be held at Salem until further notice, to accommodate social distancing.
