Worship Services

Salem United Methodist offers a variety worship service, all aimed at deepening our faith in Jesus Christ



Sunday, 8:00 am

This traditional worship service has hymns and liturgy but carries along the informal Salem style of worship. We offer Holy Communion every week as a part of this service. Attendance at this service runs between 40 to 60 persons. Many families enjoy this service as it offers a style and level of comfort that connects them with the recent history of the church. And many of our newer members have found the 8:00 service to be a comfortable place to re-enter the church and quickly feel connected. Others just like to get the day moving and the early service does just that!



Sunday, 9:30 am

These services similar in preaching but different in music presentation. They are both driven by the music of our times. The service led by our Praise Worship Teams. Both services can be loud at times and even somewhat crowded (kind of a nice feeling.) We usually open with a set of music with songs you likely could hear on the Christian music radio stations. Attendance runs from 120 to over 200 at each of these services depending upon the day and schedule. We regularly have additional special music or activities
