I'm New

We gather together each week to worship God as a community and to express to God our love, our thanks, and our devotion.
Come and be our guest as we worship together.   All are welcome!

A Word of Welcome to Salem Lutheran Church

We believe that hospitality is the spiritual gift of making space for others. We hope you receive this as our desire to make space for you and pray that you will find a sincere welcome within this church community.

If you are a first time visitor to Salem, you are invited to make use of this website as a tool to acquaint yourself with the programs and ministry opportunities.

If this church has historically been your home, then please use this resource to review where the Spirit might be leading you in new and creative ways.

Salem has had a heart for providing shelter and was instrumental in starting Salem Village Housing for Seniors. We continue our commitment to God’s call as we explore how we might participate with Family Promise in Mount Vernon. We look for other opportunities to serve the neighborhood in which we live.

Our joy is expressed in worship of the God who loves us and who blesses our relationships with one another.

Our congregation lives the slogan “Belonging precedes believing.” We believe that the Gospel shows us that everyone needs a church community, everyone. We know that not everyone holds the same beliefs as the person next to them and we don’t believe that is necessary. But we do believe that discussing and sharing our faith journeys helps all of us grow. We hope that our faith community provides the hospitality that allows the Holy Spirit to bless us and lead us in the adventure of faith.

May God bless you in your personal faith journey. We invite you to consider making Salem Lutheran Church a part of your story, there is space for you here.
