  Regular Worship
  The Shared Ministry board as well as both governing church bodies has decided to have just one worship service per Sunday. That means we would be dropping the 8 AM service for the time being. The Schedule would be Sunday School would be at 9 AM and Worship would begin at 10:15 AM. The 1st and 3rd Sundays the worship will be at Christ ELCA at 10:15 AM, the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday’s worship will be at Salem UCC at 10:15 AM. We will adjust the schedule as conditions dictate as we go forward.

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!
