Meet Our Growing Community of Faith
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction, ends up being the biggest step of your life. Who you take those steps with can make all the difference.
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.
