Educational Bible Study and discussion classes are offered during the Sunday School hour at 9:15 am every Sunday and at other times during the week. Classes do not meet during the summer. Classes examine faith issues especially as they pertain to the challenges of everyday life.
Our music programs offer you the opportunity to join others serving the Church by joining the Chancel Choir, Hand Bell Choir or Praise Band, where we all make a joyful sound for the Lord. In addition, individual concerts and performances usually include Salem members. Recent concerts have included piano recitals, brass ensembles and opera performances. David Hartley, Music Director
Growth in the spiritual realm takes place in small study/discussion groups, most of which meet in members’ homes. These groups meet monthly, usually following a current-themed video series or study book. Sunday School, Tuesday morning Bible study, and Disciple Bible study are additional ways we help you learn more about following in Christ’s footsteps.
Recent home repair and disaster relief missions have taken Salem members to New Orleans and to Harrisburg, Illinois, site of a devastating tornado in 2012. We have also served Habitat for Humanity in Port Huron and Melvin, Michigan. Another mission activity involves Salem members helping to provide and serve an annual Christmas luncheon for recently released prison inmates and their families. All members are encouraged to become involved in hands-on work as an element of fulfilling our commitment to Christ. We’d love to hear your ideas on how you would like to help.
THE UNITED METHODIST WOMEN is a group that meets monthly with an emphasis on service and mission. Current activities of the UMW are the sale of fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate, support of the overall United Methodist Church missions, and a monthly book discussion club.
THE WOMAN’S ACTIVITY GROUP is a monthly group that is organized for fun, often involving an activity such as sight-seeing, shopping, crafts, restaurant dining, plays, concerts, etc. The group’s schedule occasionally allows for men to participate in bowling and other outings.
THE MEN OF SALEM gather on the second Saturday of each month for a breakfast and social time. (The men cook and clean up!)
