Jr High: 6th - 8th grade   &   High School: 9th - 12th grade

Salem Student Ministry, or SSM, is a community of families

passionately pursuing God and living to make Him known to others.

Small Groups

Small Groups are the primary mode of student discipleship at Salem. It is our desire that all students are involved in a weekly small group. Students meet with same gender and age groups of their peers to grow in their relationship with God and in community with one another. These groups are led by volunteers and meet in various locations and on various nights depending on the group. Contact Mike Arldt (mikearldt@salemorange.com) for more information and a full list of groups.

SSM Participation Forms

While we don't require participation forms for our Sunday worship service or Small Groups, we do need a completed copy for your child in order to participate in other events. Please print out the Health and Liability Forms and turn the completed forms in to Mike or Christel in the church office. Include a copy (front & back) of your child's insurance card.  

Be sure to initial at the top of the form so it can be used for the entire school year!

If you would like to volunteer to help out with SSM, please contact Mike Arldt by email to set up a time

to meet with him to determine the best area in which to use your gifts.
