Welcome

The grace and peace of the risen Lord be with you this season after Pentecost. Alleluia!

Our next community supper is on July 6 at 6pm. Free. For all. No strings attached.

Our mission at Salem is to live abundantly by growing in faith, fellowship, spirit, and service.

Whether you’re curious or wanting to make a commitment, there are several ways to get involved in our work together:

  • Gather with your community on Sunday mornings with study at 9am and worship at 10am.
  • Join your community at the table on Wednesday, June 1 for our monthly community supper at Salem (first Wednesdays of each month). Free. For all. No strings attached.
  • To lend a hand in upcoming community service activities, check out our Special Events.

If you have questions, feel free to contact us online or by phone, or come join us face to face.

We’re glad you’ve found us online. May the time you spend here be blessed.

We are excited to welcome our newly appointed pastor, the Rev. Michael Pettry, and his wife Debi. Mike completed his Course of Study for Ordained Ministry at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina. Most recently, Mike has served Lyndhurst and Oak Hill United Methodist Churches, a two-point charge in the Waynesboro area.

With deep appreciation, we are saying goodbye to the Rev. Drew Willson after five years of ministry together. Pastor Drew will be remembered for the energy, faith, dedication, and new dimensions that his leadership and music have added to Salem’s ministry in our community.

Pastor Drew and his wife Shea Tuttle both graduated from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Drew was ordained as an elder in full connection in the Virginia Annual Conference in 2012. Drew, Shea, and their children are moving to Richmond, where Drew will serve as the associate pastor of missions and evangelism connection at Trinity United Methodist Church. Shea will continue working for the Project on Lived Theology at UVA, and she will begin an MFA program for creative nonfiction writing at Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky, this fall.

This pastoral transition will take effect on June 29.
