Following after Christ is a journey. To press on in that journey, God gave you his bride, the Church, so you won’t have to do it on your own. The Church’s role is to equip you for the work of ministry so that you can carry on in your journey of following Christ. We want to do just that.
At Salem Chapel we understand that you may have attended for some time, found you are ready to get involved, and now you’re looking for some answers about us. A short conversation won’t suffice. You want to know why we do what we do. How are we organized? What’s available for students? What resources are dedicated to missions work? How did the church start? That pastor is pretty young, what’s his story? There are a myriad of questions people ask as they approach the path of adopting a new church home.
Located in Downtown Winston-Salem, the Winston-Salem Rescue Mission ministers to the physical and spiritual needs of homeless and broken men. These men not only receive help with physical needs like food, shelter, and counseling; but are introduced to the true forgiveness and redemption found in Jesus. Many of these individuals go on to find restoration with their estranged families, employment, freedom from addictive lifestyles, and an abundant life found only in a relationship with Jesus.
On Saturday, February 4th, Thrive Middle School students and student ministry staff met downtown to serve in the Rescue Mission’s Thrift Store. The Thrift Store sells donated furniture, books, and clothing, of which the proceeds go to support the operational needs of the ministry at the Mission. Twenty of our students spent several hours working to clean the retail shelving, front storefront, and items on the sales floor. Because the Resuce Mission is a not for profit ministry, the small staff at the store are already stretched in their responsibilities to maintain daily sales and inventory operations. Cleaning shelving on the salesfloor and presentation in a warehouse setting can be difficult to maintain in the middle of everything else. This is where our group was able to jump in with some rags and cleaner and help address a real need. The students worked tirelessly, without complaint, to clean and organize the shelves and inventory with the desire to see more sales to support the ministry there. We had a fun time working together, and based on conversations I’ve had with employees at the Rescue Mission, we really had a huge impact on the staff and the overall appearance of the store.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? That question puzzled ancient philosophers and still today can evoke stutters, “um’s” and head scratching. For the followers of Jesus, we can put that question into the corner pocket every time — the chicken. Genesis 1:20 is pretty clear, God made all the living creatures. Even chickens.
But ask your same group of confident Christians, “Which comes first: faith or obedience?” You will again get some stutters, “um’s” and head scratching. Do I have faith that leads to obedience? Or does my obedience lead to faith?
