As a guest at of the Salmon Arm Church here’s what you can expect on your first visit:
As you enter the doors, a friendly person or two (we call them “greeters”) will hand you a bulletin. This bulletin contains the agenda for the day’s program as well as several announcements about what’s happening in the life of the church.
If you arrive between 9:30 and 10:30am you’ve come during what we call Sabbath School. This is a time of study and discussion in various smaller groups. We have classes for infants through adults.
The main service begins at 10:45am with a musical group leading out in congregational singing, which means we all sing together. All song lyrics are projected on a large screen. If you don’t sing, simply enjoy the music. During the following hour the participants listed in the bulletin will go to the stage to pray, read a portion of the Bible or sing. Finally, the pastor will present a message, or a sermon, which usually lasts between 30-40 minutes.
A free lunch is offered following the service. We invite you to stay! The lunch is served in the fellowship room, downstairs.
