Church Life is Made of This!
We offer praise for who God is, thanksgiving for what God has done. In personal and corporate prayer and other spiritual practices, we seek to express our love and adoration to the One who made us, redeemed us, and sustains us. CLICK HERE for ways Salem seeks to provide opportunities to worship.
We believe that the risen, living Christ is still calling persons today to follow him. We seek to be his students, learning the lessons he taught, following Him to do the things He did. In loving God with all of our mind, heart, soul, and strength, we steadily become more Christ-like. CLICK HERE to explore opportunities Salem provides for us to follow Christ.
Church Life is not just what happens in the walls of the church building, it is the people of God (the Church) going out in our community and world to tell others of God's love and to show that love through our deeds. HERE are some ways the people of Salem United Methodist Church are reaching out.
The Church is the gathered people of God. In the fellowship of the church, we are shaped and enabled to better fulfill our other purposes of Worship, Discipleship, and Outreach, in a way we could never accomplish as "solo Christians." We love the members of our church family, and we are loved by them! There is joy in community. SEE SOME WAYS you can participate in the Salem Family of God.
Stewardship is accountability to God as individuals and the Church. How do we utilize the spiritual gifts God has given each of us? What is my place in the Body of Christ? How do we handle the possessions God has entrusted to us? Together we seek to discern the spiritual gifts of ourselves and our fellows, and find opportunities for each to serve. We manage the buildings and funds available to us in wise and visionary ways. HERE'S HOW we are seeking to practice our faithfulness to God.
