CONNECTION GROUPS

 

At Salem First Church of the Nazarene, we refer to our small groups as "Connection Groups". These groups come in a large variety of shapes and sizes... but they all have one goal: To connect our people more meaningfully with God, each other, and our community. 

Some groups are fellowship based (just doing life together)... some groups are content based (involving some sort of a study)... but most groups are a combination of fellowship and content. 

Are you considering joining a Connection Group at Salem Naz? All our Connection Groups are listed in one, easy to navigate, location.

Summer Break

We’re taking a break from our Wednesday evenings meals and activities for the summer. We will resume August 21 with a kick-off before the school year begins. In the meantime, watch our Facebook page for notice of any activities.

All-Church Picnic - Wednesday, June 26, 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Come meet us at Bush Park for a fun night as a church family! We’ll provide the sandwiches, chips, veggies, and dessert. All you need is a lawn chair and possibly some yard games. Feel free to invite a friend. Please let us know if you’re coming at the Sign-Up Center so we know how much food to buy! Questions? Contact the church office at 503.581.3680.
