Salt+Light =


“For God, who said ‘Let Light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts” — II Corinthians 4:6

A Performing Arts Troupe Designed to Serve Churches, Schools, and Community Groups:

  • Trained in high quality music, acting, and improvisation, our team weaves redemptive themes throughout their energetic and engaging gigs.
  • Gigs can be arranged for any age – from children’s theatre to meaningful presentations made for adult retreats – to high school assemblies and beyond.
  • As the goal is to serve the communities around us, the team strives to do everything from setting up and cleaning up to assist in events planned at churches, youth groups, nursing homes, and food pantries, and more!
  • Because we find it so hard to describe Salt+Light, we have a TRILOGY of documentaries that explain the team best!

We are pleased to present the Salt+Light Documentary TRILOGY!

From the moment it was created, people asked what Salt+Light was. And the folks over at A Work in Progress Productions found the team hard to describe…. but, 4 years and 3 documentaries later, we finally have an answer. These three documentaries explain the concept behind the group (#1), what it’s like to be in the group (#2), and finally, how the group impacts the community (#3). Check out all three videos in this playlist, and below, please find the third installment to the trilogy: SERVING, by Cole Paul

Our team is currently full.  Congratulations to this year’s new team!
