Inspired by Jesus’ words in the Sermon on the Mount, we have come to realize that as the salt of the earth, we must help facilitate getting the salt (Christians) out of the salt shaker (church building) if we are going to make a life-changing impact in our community. Proceeding from our Lord’s charge to minister to the least of these, Salt Ministry was born. Our Salt Teams minister as individuals and as entire families and are inter-generational blends of lay ministers who simply volunteer and offer themselves to be used by our Lord for His glory and others’ good. Team members serve through the ministries of singing, praying, instrumentalists, gospel-devotional leaders, listening and encouragement. Salt Ministry Teams currently minister in a number of area nursing homes as we carry ‘church’ to those who can no longer come and worship our Lord at a church facility.
