Salem Mennonite Church



Welcome to Salem Mennonite Church’s website. We invite you to look around and learn more about us.

Salem Mennonite Church is a member of the Pacific Northwest Mennonite Conference of Mennonite Church USA.  We are a community of people who believe that Jesus said what he meant and also believe that he was talking not only to his first disciples but also to us.  Accordingly we try to live Christ centered lives and are committed to following Jesus’ example. 

We take seriously Christ’s call to be peacemakers and to love and serve our neighbors in the Salem area and around the world. 

We believe that Christ calls us into community and are committed to building a community where we love and support each other in ways that help us to follow Christ.

We gather every Sunday morning for Sunday school (9:30 AM), worship (10:45 AM) and fellowship.

And we welcome you to join us as we live and learn, work and play, and serve and worship together.
