God’s purpose for Salem Lutheran Church is –

“to share God’s love with our neighbors through God’s Word, our witness and our actions.”

We at Salem achieve this by feeding the whole person.

V Spiritually

  • Through worship as we unite with Christ through God’s Word and Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion at 8:00 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. Sunday mornings.
    • Singing praises to God for our joys while lamenting our sorrows and seeking God’s guidance for our life’s journey.
  • Through Christian Education Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. for all ages and Bible Study opportunities as we dig deeper into God’s Word and learn to apply it to our daily life.
