Youth Group

Salem’s youth gather in their own Youth Room located across the hall  from the gymnasium.   It provides an environment where teens may gather safely, be accepted, grow in faith, and learn about Jesus’ love.  From high-impact trips such as the LCMS National Youth Gathering to local service events, teens share the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with others.  Contact Jeff Kullmann for more information or visit the Salem Youth Group Facebook Page.


Missouri District Junior High Youth Gathering

This coming weekend, October 19 – 21, Salem will send a group of sixth, seventh and eighth grade youth and 4 adults to the Missouri District Junior High Youth Gathering at Camp Windermere in the Lake of the Ozarks.  The theme for this gathering is based on God’s Word from 1 Corinthians 10:16-17, “We who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.”  The weekend away will be filled with Bible studies based on the theme; fellowship, community building, and worship.  On Saturday afternoon, Salem’s youth will take part in a servant event, followed by games, a talent show and a bonfire.  The youth will worship together on Sunday before heading back to St. Louis.


Missouri District Senior High Youth Gathering

Salem’s Senior High Youth will take part in the Missouri District Senior High Youth Gathering at the Lake of the Ozarks on the weekend of November 16th to 18th.  Events include community building, music, Bible studies, speakers, a Saturday servant event and a worship service to finish the weekend.  This year’s theme is “I AM”.  In Exodus 3 Moses encounters God at the burning bush.  It’s here God gives Moses his personal name, Yahweh, and the authority of “I AM” to go to the people of Israel.  Today young Christians experience many afflictions – personal, emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical – and God is the one who delivers us from these afflictions.

The  cost of the event is $165.00 which includes event programming, lodging, and 4 meals.  Adults attending will cover the cost of transportation to and from Rocky Mount, Missouri.  The deadline to register is Sunday, October 28th.  The $165.00 is due at the time of registration.  For additional information please conttact Jeff Kullmann.


Members of Salem’s Senior High Youth Group are available to help out with household chores and odd jobs.  The youth are able to paint, clean, rake leaves, mow lawns, pull weeds, babysit and walk dogs.  Money earned will be used to help off-set expenses for the 2019 LCMS National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis.  If you need help around your house and are willing to support our youth at the rate of at least ten dollars per hour, please contact any youth or their parents.  For more information please contact Jeff Kullmann.
