WELCOME

Welcome to Salem! - a church with a heart for all God's people. Salem UMC exists because God calls us to "love in action" - (explore, embody, embrace).

If you've found your way here, welcome home.


For over 215 years, Salem has been growing disciples for Jesus Christ and transforming the world one life at a time. We invite you to spend some time here, search our site, and experience this remarkable experiment in Christian community where we explore faith, embody Christ, and embrace others.    

Worship

We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. We’re all about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our broader community along the way.


We want to invite you to one of our Sunday gatherings to experience our community of "love in action" authentically engaging with the God who loves us!
