Missions Volunteer Opportunities
BOX MINISTRY DELIVERIES
Salem partners with local ministries each month to raise awareness about their programs and assist their ministries materially. Mission Boxes are available in the church lobby.

Ministry partners include: Tomball Pregnancy Center, Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries (TEAM), TOMAGWA Healthcare Ministries, Bethesda/Avid (home for disabled adults), Families Feeding Families, Elijah Rising, and more!
