I joined New Salem with my husband, shortly after we were married. I was 19 years old. That was 63 years ago. I have seen many changes in the church and we have gone through some hard times, but the people hold on to their faith and to each other.  I truly love New Salem and the people of New Salem. I cannot imagine going anywhere else!  

New Salem and the people of New Salem have always been there for me and my family in good times and bad times! I always know I can count on them. 

I continue to come to New Salem because it is my church and I am at home here! 

The Hendry’s

Our family has been members of New Salem UMC for over ten years. We felt welcome from the moment we first walked through the door. Everyone seemed to know each other by first name and we liked the feeling of a smaller church. Our sons were involved in Sunday school, youth, and confirmation. We enjoyed Wednesday night activities as a family. Though our children are older they have been involved with the worship music and sound system and we believe that has made them feel a part of the worship experience. If you like a great meal, the NSUMC will put on a wonderful covered dish spread no matter the reason for celebration!!! The biggest thing we have seen over the years is there is not one thing this church family wouldn’t do for each other and that’s why we call NSUMC home
