Love the City is committed to equipping and empowering the people of Salem Alliance Church to bring the tangible peace, presence and power of Jesus to our neighbors


What is a Love the City Project?

A Love the City Project can be a one-time or ongoing opportunity that brings blessing to a neighbor/s. Our commitment is to equip & empower you through resources (finances, connections, etc), support and prayer. Your commitment is to look for open doors to serve and love wherever you go.

When you fill out the Love the City Application you can apply for a financial grant of up to $500.00.

What are project requirements?

A project must: 

  1. Be a blessing or meet a need. 
  2. Be done together with other believers so that our neighbors experience the love of Jesus through his body, the church.
  3. Be led by someone who calls Salem Alliance Church their home church.
  4. Be for someone who is not related to you and does not attend Salem Alliance Church.

A project should not: 

  • Support an individual's salary or be for an organization's operational budget or program.
