In the mean time, we have a training planned for October 22nd at our new office location. The address is 1380 Church St NE, Salem OR.

Easter Parties!

posted Feb 9, 2016, 10:46 AM by Jeff Wagnell

We are excited to celebrate Easter soon with the children and share with them it's true meaning. Easter isn't about bunnies, or eggs full of candy, but about the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This year, our lesson is about sharing the hope that can only be found in Jesus because He is the Resurrection and the Life. Do you want to host an Easter Party Club during spring break? If so please contact Jeff at the office.

Good News Clubs are coming up!!

We are getting ready to start gearing up for GNC. Are you ready? What do you need to get ready? Don't forget about the GNC kickoff meeting on the 13th of September, and our first teacher training class is Sept 22nd.

Are you looking for ways you can get involved? Good News Clubs are a great way to be involved in your community, share the love of God with children who desperately need to hear that they are loved, and be encouraged in your own walk with the Lord.

Fair Training

Hey All,
Do you like to share the gospel with children, teens, and adults using the Wordless book? The state fair is coming up and we will be there sharing the gospel with whoever wants to hear it. Call us up and let us know when you want to help out.

If you need a refresher on using the wordless book, come on down to the First Salem Baptist on the 14th at 6:30PM. It will be a blast to be together and share each other's enthusiasm for sharing the gospel.

Additional Training

Are you looking for additional training for preparing to teach children? We have a 30hr intensive training coming up! Starting January 28th in the evening we will be teaching the class 'Teaching Children Effectively level 1' (TCE 1). This class will give you the basic tools you need to prepare any Bible lesson to teach to kids as well as sharing the gospel and using songs and memory verses in your teaching.

Action Song

posted Sep 26, 2012, 11:13 AM by Jeff Wagnell

For those of you who wanted to learn the action song "Sometimes," I decided to post the words and the link to the melody here. The underlined text is where you should be doing the actions that go with the song. I hope you enjoy teaching it to the children.

Sometimes when I’m up.

Sometimes when I’m down.

Sometimes when I’m simply just walking around.

I look way up high, and smile at the sky

‘cause God loves me!

My heart gives a twirl.

My feet give a hop,

 and gladly I spin round and round like a top!

Its so good to know as forward I go,

that God loves me!

 
Here is the song:

Beginning Fall Ministry

posted Sep 6, 2012, 3:27 PM by Jeff Wagnell

Well, it has been an amazing summer full of 5-Day Clubs, working with our amazing CYIA'ers, and sharing the gospel at the State Fair, but now it is time to be looking towards our Good News Clubs which start in just three weeks.

I want to praise God for all of our faithful and some new volunteers who helped out at the fair and shared the gospel with thousands...all told 2,134 people heard the gospel of Jesus and 472 made a decision for Christ. Please pray that God would continue to work in the hearts of these people; many of whom we may never see again.

Next week on September, Saturday the 15th we have our annual fall Good News Clubs Kickoff. Please come join us and share in the fellowship, encouragement, and instruction at West Salem Baptist Church.

September 24th is the start of our Bi-monthly Teacher Training meetings held at CMA. If you are teaching or helping in Good News Club or are interested in doing so please come.
