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.
