I came that you may have life and have it abundantly.  – John 10:10

Welcome to Salem Lutheran Church!

We are a place set aside for neighbors searching for abundant life. Come inside our doors, and you’ll find a friend, probably more than one. In this community, we gather to be nurtured in Christ’s love so we can share that love with our neighbors, near and far. That’s why I’m confident you’ll find a friend here.

We believe the abundant love revealed in Jesus Christ is lived out in community.  Salem is not a community of the like-minded, but a collection of different people guided and held together by the Holy Spirit. The love we share with each other and across the world helps us be a message of hope for the world.

If you are looking for a place to center your spiritual life, or if you are just looking for something more out of life, Salem is a place for you. Come inside, and you will discover life and what it means to have it abundantly
