Christmas message & prayer from Bishop Trimble


The North Central District of the Indiana UMC has been concerned about Pastor Gina’s health issues.  Associate District Supervisor Greg Enstrom, who preached for us 4 times this fall, is aware and was kept up to date by Glenn Howell, Jamalyn Williamson, and the Pastor Parrish Committee.  He assured our Pastor Parish committee that the district was working on a solution.

Effective immediately, Pastor Gina is Salem UMC’s Pastor Emeritus.  This designation is to allow Pastor Gina all the time she needs to get healthy and not be worried about her duties at Salem UMC.

Effectively immediately, Pastor Perry Montgomery is Salem UMC’s Senior Pastor.  As with our previous pastors, this is a part time position.  Perry has been an associate pastor at Zionsville United Methodist Church for some time, and he will continue to work part time with ZUMC, around his Salem UMC duties.  Perry’s appointment as Senior Pastor will continue through December 1. 2021. 

Perry and his wife, Jill, are very excited about joining Salem UMC. His first worship service at Salem UMC is this Sunday, November 29.

On Sunday August 16th, Eric Hand read a report from the Trustees.  Starting August 17 restoration projects will begin at Salem UMC!  First will be the safe removal and remediation of the bats.  The exterior of the church will also be under construction.  Please read the report at this link for more information.  Prayers for a rapid, safe and high quality restoration of Salem UMC. 

Also, please feel free to speak to any of the Trustees if you have any concerns or questions.
