The General Conference of the United Methodist Church, in April 1996, adopted a resolution aimed at reducing the risk of child sexual abuse in the church. With that in mind, Salem has adopted a Safe Sanctuaries policy to protect all children, youth and adults who enter our facility.

What to Expect
“Whoever welcomes you

Welcome to Salem United Methodist Church! Much awaits you here and we’re looking forward to introducing you to all that our church community has to offer.
As you arrive at SUMC, please enjoy the convenience of our parking spaces located in the parking lot by the sanctuary or across the street at the corner of Middle Road and Church Street. Additional parking spaces are available in the lot behind the sanctuary.
Whether you’re visiting for the first time or have returned for another service, we are happy to see you!
As you enter the worship areas, ushers are on hand to distribute bulletins and provide seating assistance. During the worship service, help us get to know you better by filling out the pew pads. Pads are located in the red books at the end of the pew row closest to the center aisle and are passed during the service. Should you have questions during the week or would like to learn more about membership opportunities at SUMC, Pastor David Beck, looks forward to your inquiry. Please contact him by phone (910-483-8959) or email him at:
Talking with Pastor David can provide wonderful insight to the great things happening at our church on Sundays and throughout the week.
We welcome all of God’s children to our family. We invite you to join in the joyful worship and celebration through the service we offer to God as we strive to grow in our Christian faith.
