Individual classes and project groups for our children and youth are provided, motivating learning and insight into principles, faith and truth. The first Wednesday of each month is "Missions Night," when we all gather in focus groups to study missions projects, what God says about our role in missions and searching for opportunities to serve Him in Sneads Ferry, in North Carolina, in America and throughout our world.
  • 06:00 pm - Every third Thursday we gather at Salem, pile into the church van and visit our area nursing homes. It's said we do so to bring joy and a smile to our nursing home residents, but the truth is, it's we who come away with smiles and joy in our hearts! A short message is brought by our Deacons, wonderful music is sung by gifted friends and everyone joins in to sing old favorites.
