  Pentecost Sunday
  "When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:14 . The birth of the church. On Sunday, May 23rd, we will be celebrating this special day in worship with Holy Communion. Join us for this special day in the parking lot at 10:30 AM weather permitting.
  Memorial Day Service
  On Sunday, May 30th ,we will have a Memorial Day Celebration in the Cemetery. This service begins this year around 9:15 AM. The legion has informed me that they will be at our church between 9:15 and 9:30 AM that Sunday morning. Yes, this is a different time than in the past. I do not have any control over the timing. When they arrive, we will begin so my recommendation is if you want to participate, please be here by 9:15 AM. You may bring a lawn chair if you wish and sit in the cemetery for the service.
  Oley Food Pantry
  The Oley Food Pantry is in need of food during this desperate time. They are serving more families than ever. I know that we cannot bring in our food offerings right now, but I would encourage anyone who can, to send monetary donations to the Food Pantry. Donations can be sent to Oley Valley Food Pantry, Friedens Lutheran Church, 1076 Memorial Hwy, Oley, PA. 19547 or you can give a donation with your offering indicating it is for the Food Pantry and we will forward it to them. Any little bit can help.

Welcome to Salem UCC, a diverse group from different backgrounds, different places, and with different gifts, all joining together as a family to do the work of the church. We are a community who believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, a community that strives to be faithful in all that it does for the glory of God. We are an active, talented group here at Salem UCC. There are many niches to fill. Some are as traditional and long-standing as the Church itself. Other niches are filled by people who come along and create them! Everybody fits here because we are family. Who are We? We are people who value faithful commitment, full devotion to Jesus, praise and worship, teamwork, and raising children and youth in the Christian faith. We are the family of God here at Salem UCC. Come meet the family!
