heard us say that 2020 is going to be
a big year here at Salem UMC and you

Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking
about, allow me to elaborate...


During the first two months of this year
we have seen an active increase in vistors
on this website compared to the same two
months (Jan. & Feb.) of last year...


In Janury of 2019 we saw 273 visitors
Comapred to 399 vistors we saw in January 
of this year..

In February of 2019 we saw 342 vistors
compared to the 350 visitors this year and we still
have ONE WEEK left in the month!!!

Church family and friends...
2020 is here...
The ride is about to leave the station...
I hope you will stick around and enjoy the ride and help us
