Future sidewalk repair – SOON!
The City of Salem is planning to put in new sidewalks on all sides of the FUMC buildings. The date for the work to begin is not scheduled yet, but it will happen! Thank you for the prayers and thanks to Dalke Construction for helping to get this project on the City of Salem’s radar!
UNDER CONSTRUCTION! Please be patient with Salem’s First United Methodist Church as we have several building projects and renovations under way. This will possibly affect some traffic patterns & parking. Thank you!
