COVID-19 Update for Salt Church
For the protection of our families, community and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 per the CDC (see website), we will be having online services indefinitely every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. You can view us on Facebook live, YouTube and online forums. You can also view past services at saltchurch.org/messages. We hope to be back together soon.
Prayer is our first response, not our last resort. We’re comforted and empowered knowing we serve a miracle-working God who is an ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1). Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and show you how to pray for those on the front lines, at high risk, and in great need.
We’d love to pray for you and your needs. Ask for prayer here and our prayer team will pray for you specifically throughout the week

While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we know that divine health and protection is from Jesus. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection in Psalm 91 for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling. Psalm 91:9–10
