  New Worship Schedule
  With the affirmative vote for the shared ministry with Christ Lutheran we will be moving to a different worship schedule. The first and third Sunday of the month, Salem will worship at 8 AM (we will continue to have communion at this service as we have in the past) Christ Lutheran will worship at 10:30 AM. The second and fourth Sunday of the month, Salem will worship at 10:30 AM and Christ Lutheran will worship at 8 AM. If there is a fifth Sunday in the month, worship will be at Salem at 10:30 AM. We will make sure that the appropriate times for worship are marked on the calendar we send out with the newsletter. Please check the calendar so you the proper times and locations. I encourage everyone to take advantage of these worship possibilities and I look forward to seeing everyone in worship.

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!
