We are delighted to announce that Salem United Methodist Church has a new Pastor! Bishop Peggy Johnson appointed Rev. Stacy Gonzalez to be Pastor here at Salem United Methodist Church beginning July 1, 2021.  Pastor Gonzalez, her husband, and their two children moved here from Tennessee where she attended Seminary.  Pastor Gonzalez is originally from Boyertown, PA and still has some family that currently reside there. The church has been eagerly awaiting Pastor Gonzalez’s arrival. Let us welcome Pastor Gonzalez and her family to our church family! Please take time to join us for worship on Sunday, July 4th, 2021 and welcome Pastor Gonzalez before / after worship in our church.
