  Thanks-living Service
  The Churches of the Oley Valley are excited to announce a very special Multi-Denominational service of ‘THANKS-LIVING’ to be held at Friedens Lutheran Church (1076 Memorial Highway, Oley) on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at 4:00. This is a special service which will hi-light the many gifts and talents of the Oley Valley. There will be musical performances by the Mount Laurel Brass Quintet, as well as the musical offerings of a combined youth choir during this service.
Perhaps the most impressive part of this service will be the presentation of a community quilt which has been lovingly designed and assembled by members of the various churches in the community. This quilt will be presented and displayed during the service and will go on to be rotated and displayed at the churches for special occasions throughout the year to help remind us of our commitment to unity within our community of faith.
As part of this service, there will be a light meal of soup and bread served in the social hall. During this time, table communion will be offered to all who wish to partake. Even though this event is a celebration of the many gifts of the Oley Valley, it is open to the public and we hope this event may inspire unity and cohesiveness throughout our larger
community and world.
  Thank Offering
  Our Thank offering will be taken on Sunday Nov. 18th. This is Thanksgiving Sunday a very appropriate time to take our thank offering. Please consider what you are thankful for and give thanks to be giving back in return to others who are need. If you would like an offering box, please see Eleanor Shaner.

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!
