Welcome to Salem!

WELCOME
Thank you for visiting Salem’s website. We are an open and affirming congregation, and our mission is to witness to the word and work of Jesus so all people may know the welcome of God, worship with joy, grow as disciples, live as servants, and enjoy the strength of Christian fellowship. Here is a little taste of what is happening here over the summer.
SUMMER WORSHIP HOUR
Our summer worship schedule begins on Sunday, June 3. Beginning June 3 and continuing through September 2, Salem’s worship service will be at 9 o’clock. All are welcome and we hope to you as the community of the church gathers these Sunday mornings. Worship at Salem is traditional without being formal and its structure is uncomplicated. Each service hopes to speak to life today with light and love we believe come from God.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
On each night of July 22 through 26, from 5 to 8 pm, we will hold Vacation Bible School. VBS is an event for people of all ages (childcare will be provided upon request for children below 3 years of age). VBS includes a meal, music, stories, games, activities, crafts, and more. The theme is “Rome! Paul and the Underground Church.” Contact Sarah Pundt, our Christian Education Director, for more information.
SUMMER SALT EXPERIENCES
SALT is an acronym for Serving And Learning Together. These are hands-on experiences for Middle School and High School youth, providing opportunities to growth while serving. There will be two SALT adventures this year: “The Great SALT Madison Plunge” June 26 through 28 and the United Church of Christ’s “Great Lakes Regional Youth Event” to be held at Elmhurst College July 5 through July 8. Contact Laura Kolden, our Association in Ministry, to learn more about these opportunities.
