Did you know that God isn’t mad at you?

He’s not angry, frustrated or indifferent.

In fact, God is FOR you.

Better yet – He’s not just for you… He’s for your family, your neighbors, your city.

So, being #forSalem (and #forKeizer, #forTurner, #for… wherever) means being neighborly. Loving the people around you, both with words and actions. We talk about it in our videos (see below), encourage it in our small groups and social media, and push out some monthly challenges (opportunities!) with tangible ways to be FOR Salem (and neighbor, wherever you are).

Q&A session:


Crosscreek is a church that is FOR Salem. But what is #forSalem? Where did it come from? What is it really about? And how can we all be a part of it? Let’s talk.
