Service Ministries

In the tradition of the United Methodist Church, Salem offers a variety of opportunities to be involved in Christian service.

Prayer Chain
Salem’s Prayer Chain consists of approximately 25 members. They are
an intercessory prayer chain offering another persons concern to God. People
call with prayer concerns for family members, church members, friends,
neighbors, co-workers, etc. Contact the church office if you would
like to make a prayer request.

The Prayer Chain is always looking for people who feel a
call to pray for others on the spur of the moment whenever someone calls with a
prayer request. Please be in prayerful thought as to whether God is calling you
to serve in this capacity. Contact the church office if you would like to join
the Prayer Chain or for more information.

Ushering
Please consider ushering. We have teams of four who are on a rotating
schedule. This means that you would usher about once every 3 or 4 months. Call
the office to volunteer.

Liturgist
Anyone can volunteer to be a Liturgist for a worship service. You
will receive all the information about what you would read before your selected
day. Sign up today, it is a great way to be involved.

Greeters
Share a warm welcome with everyone who enters our church for services. This
is an excellent opportunity to put on your best smile forward! Call the office
to volunteer.

Multi-Media Team

The Multi-media Team (audio and visual) at Salem is in charge of running the sound booth for worship services, weddings, funerals, and special events. Their mission is to integrate modern technology into worship and other ministries while keeping within the mission and vision of Salem; plan and look ahead into the ever changing technological world; and to look forward and anticipate the changing needs of this congregation. If you would like more information on this exciting ministry please contact the church office. No prior tech experience is needed – they will take care of training.
