Easter Sunday April 4, 2021--video of the worship service from Salem UMC. 

As we move back inside we are trying to continue to share the worship service with as many of you as possible.  The worship service is still being broadcast on FM station 102.5 for those who wish to join from their vehicles in the parking lot.


We are recording the worship service by video and audio.

Audio versions are added to the church website almost every week. We are now recording the entire service and not just the sermon.  In order to listen to the service, click on the Sermons link above, then select audio.

Praises to Bob Overman for his diligence and time in getting the video and audio ready to share.

Starting February 7th, the congregation will be welcomed back to the sanctuary.  Masks and social distancing will be required. At this time, the fellowship time before and after the worship service is suspended.

We will continue to offer live broadcast for those in the parking during the actual church service. We will also continue to record the service. We will post the video version here, the church website and by email. An audio only version is also available on the church website.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

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.

Removal of old concrete steps.

Bell tower: current siding removed to expose the original siding prior to wrapping for insulation.

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.
