At Salem United Methodist Church, everyone is welcome.
We believe everyone is a beloved child of God.


Sunday Service:  9 am
We are a people of Biblical faith.  Our faith is guided by Scripture, tradition, experience and reason.  For United Methodists, the Bible is the record of God’s people living out God’s promise.  Join us on Sunday mornings for music, scripture readings and a message on today’s topics.
We are located at 541 Hwy 59 in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Lent and Easter – “Yearly Check Up”
By choice or by compulsion, many of us get a yearly physical to check the state of our health.  As important as it is to monitor your physical well-being, it is infinitely more important to monitor your spiritual wellbeing.  This Lent, we will take some time to check how it is with our soul throughout the various areas of our lives.

March 17 – 2nd Sunday in Lent How is it with your relationships? (Colossians 3:12-14)
