  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. Sunday, June 9th, we will be celebrating this special day in worship with Holy communion. Join us for this special day.

  We have several High School and College Students graduating this year. We will be honoring these individuals in worship on Sunday, June 9th. Parents of graduates, please contact the church office with a brief bio of your child so we can properly celebrate and honor them. I hope to see all those graduating this year in worship on that Sunday so we can
celebrate your accomplishments.

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!
