Welcome to Salem
We are the Salem family, growing people in Christ! It is our desire to follow our Lord more fully each day and offer others help in their faith journey as we grow together. Salem is a congregation where all ages have place and purpose. Our worship is "child friendly" with a Children's message each week. We hope you will take time look through our web site and come and visit as you are able. It is very important that everyone feel a sense of belonging, and we hope Salem may be that place for you.
