Sharing - Action - Loving - Equipping & Making a Difference
Serving God and the Community since 1851, Salem UMC is dedicated to being centered on Biblical teaching. Through our three Sunday morning worship services, we seek to create various sacred spaces, where all can connect through worship. We also offer opportunities for fellowship and to deepen your faith through classes, small groups, and opportunities to serve.
We invite you to take a few mintues and get to know us better though our site. We hope to see you soon.
Dear Salem UM Church Family,I hope all is well with you and your loved ones. As things continue to evolve around us every day, last night our church’s COVID Response Team met to discuss the best next steps for Salem, and I would like to share their decisions with you.
Masks: Masks are no longer required, but still welcome and encouraged for those who feel more comfortable wearing them. The Team would also like to encourage all who attend worship or any small group to be alert, and mindful of others. If you choose to go unmasked, for their comfort and focus on the worship of our Lord, we ask that you try not to sit near people who are masked (unless you already know their comfort level). In the same way; that we may create the best worship space possible, we encourage the masked be mindful of where they sit and create space for the unmasked around them.
Dinner Church & Food: We will once again be offering free coffee and doughnuts during our Coffee House Worship Service and before Sunday School. For everyone’s comfort we will once again be offering only store prepared foods. We will be bringing back our Tuesday night Dinner Church Service right away. We ask that no one take food themselves, but allow themselves to be served by those behind the counter. Those behind the counter will be wearing gloves and masks while serving. We will continue to postpone our monthly potlucks for the time being.
As we continue to move forward, as Christ followers, taking this unique adventure one day at a time, I want to thank you for your patience as this Team continues to try and make the best decisions they can. These new measures are a reminder for all of us to continually move forward in our Christian maturity, as we love and care for each other.
God’s joy be with you,
Mark your calendars for these great events coming up.
