Salem will be hosting Christ Lutheran during worship for this Sunday. Parents please try to have you children at church for Sunday School by 9 AM, especially on those Sundays we are rehearsing. We only have a few short minutes to practice each Sunday and we need everyone there. Thank You all for cooperating.
  Congregational Meetings
  On Sunday, November 24th, following the morning worship we will be having a congregational meeting. The topic of the meeting is the annual budget and the election of the officers for the coming year. Please try to attend this important meeting. We need everyone to participate and be informed about the needs of the coming year for Salem. There will also be congregational meetings on Sunday, Dec. 1st and Dec. 15th to discuss and answer questions in regards to the Shared Ministry after worship.
  Chritsmas Eve Services
  This year, we will hold our Christmas Eve services at 3 PM and at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, December 24th. Both services will include Holy Communion as well as Lessons and Carols and the traditional Candle lighting. The 3:00 PM service will begin with a 20 minute concert (2:40 – 3:00) by the Trio Jolie’. They will also be playing music during the service. The Mt. Laurel Brass will provide a Christmas Recital/Prelude for the later service. The Recital will begin at 7 PM. The committee reminds everyone that the recital prior to the service is not part of the worship; it is a time of gathering and fellowship, the worship starts at 7:30 PM. If you have other plans or cannot be here at 7 PM for the recital, please feel free to join us after the recital at 7:30 PM as we begin the worship time of our Christmas Eve celebration. Please plan to join us at these special services as we celebrate the coming of the Christ Child.
  Devotional Advent Calendar
  This year the revitalization committee has come up with an Advent devotional calendar (ONE FOR ADULTS AND ONE FOR CHILDREN) to be used during the Advent season. We are encouraging the whole congregation to be a part of this special program. What better way to prepare for the Savior than for our whole congregation to be at prayer and study together. Along with the calendar, each week we are having a special emphasis on mission giving. More about the mission giving will be posted in the bulletin and in the devotional booklet. Please plan to participate in the all church Advent study, prayer and giving Devotional Calendar.

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!
