Meet Our Growing Community of Faith
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction,
ends up being the biggest step of your life.
How is our church different than other churches?
We are an intimate family church and there’s a place for you here. Whether it’s with a small group, choir, bell choir, community outreach, or welcoming you when joining us for worship, our doors and hearts are open.
“We were overwhelmed and tired of feeling like ‘just a number’ at big churches. At Salem, everyone is so friendly and the welcome is personal. It’s truley a family.”
A unique history
Originally there was a schoolhouse from the early 1800s that was also a meetinghouse. The current church building was built in 1868. First called Salem Evangelical United Brethren Church, we became Salem United Methodist Church in 1968.
We are thankful that God has opened our eyes to many new ministries these past few years and we look with excitement and enthusiasm as to where God will lead us next!
Our Mission is about making disciples of Jesus Christ commissioned for this action during his life and ministry as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20, and with the character, he alone exampled perfectly, as recorded in Matthew 22: 37-39. This is best done among small groups committing and investing in each other’s lives so that our stories join with the stories of others to tell of the full witness of God’s love for the world.
Find out about the gifts God has given you to help grow the Body of Christ. We can help you find ways to grow your gifts to change the world for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Who is our Pastor?
Lee Corpier was Licensed as a Local Pastor in the East District of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church after pursuing candidacy for ordination as Elder for the last 4 years. Lee is enrolled in the Masters of Divinity program at United Theological Seminary in Ohio through the use of an Online Hybrid program. His previous work included working at Siemens Industry Inc. (manufacturing technology applications) as a Manufacturing Technician included work such as Lean Manufacturing and Process Analysis and Process Documentation and retention. This came on the tail end of working in the manufacturing shop building pneumatic products. Before his time at Siemens, he worked at Walmart as a Department Manager.
Lee’s ministry experience comes from leading worship as liturgist biweekly at Tabor UMC in Woxall, PA, preaching bi-monthly, leading a sermon-focused Sunday School group, the Worship Technology Committee, the Committee on Nominations and Leadership and serving as an advisor to Nurture-Membership Care, and serving on Administrative Council.
Before starting the candidacy process, Lee worked as a volunteer Youth Leader and the Youth Director for a total of 10 years. He has a particular talent for creative technology applications which includes sustainability and cost management. Lee sees his ministry gifts for service as Spirit-directed preaching, teaching, and worship. Over the past year, he has been championing small group ministry at Woxall that combines discipleship with evangelism and missions that prevents spiritual stagnation. His experiences in a covenanted small group setting has allowed him to see redemption and growth both in faith and within his family in breaking the chain of self-destructive behaviors.
Having been brought up in the Assemblies of God and then becoming a Methodist during his college years, Lee has learned that both Spiritual empowerment in continual renewal and focused use of Christian disciplines can bring a profound spiritual growth in the life of all believers.
