Welcome to Salem United Methodist Church!

We are a church in progress, very much like life in progress. You are more than welcome to come join us discover how to grow in God, reach out with God’s love and grace, and put out there our faith in action. I like what the Reconciling Ministries say, “BOL: Believe Out Loud!”

Join us if you want to make a difference, if you think beyond yourself and your needs, if you think God is bigger than anything you can think of, if you want dignity for all. Join us to discover God’s gifts for you and the world. Join us if you want to be relevant and lead and live a God-life.

We are a connectional church, in that we are a part of the global church that is the United Methodist Church who has churches and mission presence all around the world. Together, we respond to God’s call to authentic discipleship and responsible stewardship as shown by Jesus Christ. As we transform ourselves, we transform the world through love, justice, mercy, compassion– where we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, free the oppressed, walk with the poor, advocate for the marginalized and invisible. This is a lifetime walk with God, ever growing and ever deepening, and ever striving to live powered by the Holy Spirit.

Join us in this journey. It is an adventure worth living for and getting excited about!

It’s all about God!

Marshfield: Wesley UMC Destroyed by Fire

Click to read article

Dear friends of South East District,

You might have heard or seen in the news something we would have never expected but it happened.  This past Sunday at around 1:30pm, our Wesley UMC in Marshfield caught fire and burned for many hours.  It took hours for the fire fighters to put out the fire late into midnight.  Thank God that no one was in the church at the time of the incident.

Yesterday the church met to discuss where they would worship and what to do at the moment.  Yesterday we received report from the fire chief that the incident is not criminal.  Church Mutual also came and did the initial assessment of the damage.  At this point, it is determined to be a total loss.  For safety and security, no one is allowed to enter the building at this time. 

The Annual Conference has set a fund account to receive your support and you can give your congregation a chance to contribute to the restoration and rebuilding effort. We encourage people to give through their local church offering by writing a check to their local church and putting  Fund 7999 Marshfield: Wesley Fire on the memo.

I pray and ask that you all keep Pastor Lourdes Magalhaes and the church members in your prayers as they cope with this loss and their present concerns to the need of a new church building in the future.  May God restore both the building and the heart and souls of all the people who have been blessed by the ministry of Wesley United Methodist Church in Marshfield.

Grace and peace,
