Youth Group

The Salisbury Presbyterian Church youth group consists of students in grades 6 – 12 and represents many different area schools, both public and private. Our ministry seeks to create a diversity of ministry opportunities to explore and grow in faith, serve God in the world, create Christian community within our group and gain skills for life beyond the teenage years. Each Sunday night something is different. Contact the church for more information.

Youth are invited to join us at any time during the year and all are welcome!

Children’s Pray-ground

This is a special place in worship geared specifically for children, grades K-2.  Each Sunday, following the Children’s Message, children can go to the back of the sanctuary for their “own” time, where they can listen to the sermon while they color, fidget with special toys to keep their hands busy, read a book, or sit quietly with other children and hear the message that day.  (Sundays, during 11 a.m. worship September-May)
