Are You New to Salem?


"Let's walk together for a while,
And ask where we begin,
To build a place that love can grow and hope can enter in,
To be the hands of healing,
And to plant the seeds of peace... ...Singing welcome, welcome to this place,
You're invited to come and know God's grace,
All are welcome the love of God to share,
'Cause of all of us are welcome here,
All are welcome in this place."

Welcome to Salem! Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. The lyrics above express a message that we hope is received when everyone walks through the doors at Salem. All are welcome from first time visitors to long time members. We journey in life together.

The word “Salem” comes from the Hebrew word, shalom, which means peace or completeness. We are not complete here at Salem. We are imperfect, but Salem is a place where it is ok to not be ok. It’s a place to seek peace- a place to find a sense of being complete or whole. We ask questions. We have doubts, but we also have hope. We share our joys and our concerns with each other as we give thanks and offer it up to God. And we seek to join in with God’s renewing work in our families, neighborhoods, and throughout the world. Together we create a real community in which we can experience the love of God known to us in Jesus Christ. Together we grow in our faith and our call to be agents of God’s hope and healing. Together we seek peace and God’s completeness.

Come, check us out! And check out this great video!
