At Salem Alliance, Reach is a month where we take time and focus on missions. This year, our theme is Harvest and we're highlighting how we all have a part to play in being on mission as a church. You will hear from different ministries – Baraka, Neighborhoods and Nations – and how they aim to demonstrate and declare the Gospel. Below, we have resources for you from each ministry area as we progress through this month of Reach.
