And a Child Shall Lead Them

This week we lift up this scripture from Mark 9:37: “Whomever welcomes one of these children in my name welcomes me … and the One who sent me.”

Our church works hard at being welcoming, especially by inviting our children and youth to lead. They have been encouraged since they were little to stay in the pews even when they’re noisy. They have sung in children’s choir, acted and danced in musicals and worship, read scripture, and played their instruments to an always-positive congregation. We are thrilled to experience their talent and excitement to be in front of the congregation leading worship, and also behind the scenes running electronics and mentoring our youngest by helping in the nursery. Salem’s children and youth know that their church family wants them to come as they are.

Thank you to all of our families who volunteer to make Salem such a welcoming and inviting community. We are experiencing God’s love through you and your children.

In Christ’s love,
Heather Lewis
Director of Music and Worship
