WELCOME TO SALEM!

Sunday Service:  please click on the link below for a recorded version of our current worship service.
 
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.
