Salem Lutheran Ministries


We are so glad that you found our web site.  We are excited to show you some of the great things God is doing to help us share Christ’s love in our community.  Salem has a rich history as a Lutheran Church and School in Springdale, Arkansas.  Today God has blessed us with a growing multi-cultural family of faith that is working together with Christo Para Todos and the Rock House to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in the North West Arkansas region.  Our web site is new and still under construction.  Come often to discover more about Salem’s ministry as the web site and ministry develops.  We’d love for you to check us out and maybe God would move you to join our family on a journey of faith and service.

Worship Opportunities

 God has blessed us with four worship services on Sundays. The 8:00 a.m. service follows the order of the Lutheran traditional liturgy with a blend of hymns and features instruments and a chancel choir. (English) At 10:30a.m. we offer two contemporary worship services, one in English and one in Spanish.  The English worship is in our Family Life Center and the Spanish worship is in our sanctuary.  Both services are led by Praise Teams.  A praise and worship service is offered once a month in the evening at 6 p.m.  The Lord’s Supper is offered at each of these worship services.

Sunday Morning Studies

 The Sunday morning study hour for children age 3 to High School begins at 9:15 a.m.  Come into the Fellowship Hall to get directions to the class rooms.  The Adult Class meets at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  Children’s Church also takes place during both of the 10:30 a.m. worship services.  Children 4th grade and under are invited to attend a special children’s lesson half way through the service.
