GREETING FOR SALEM EVANGELICAL UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST

QUINCY, ILLINOIS

  WEBSITE

A GREETING FROM THE PASTOR

Welcome to the website of God’s people known as Salem Evangelical United Church of Christ in Quincy, Illinois.  Within these sections you will find the story of Salem, it’s people and their long history of service to our God.    If you are a member or regular attender, you already know of the love expressed here in our worship to God.  And if you are a visitor to this site, I invite you to browse through our history, our beliefs and the photos of what our ministry is all about here as Salem Evangelical UCC!  Find out about our worship, educational opportunities and  fellowship from our Good News donations to help families at Christmas to the Saturday meals given here each week to help the hungry and homeless.

As a member of the United Church of Christ, we follow the belief , “that no matter who you are or wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.  And we also believe that we “we never place a period where God has place a comma”, for God is still speaking”.  So if you are looking for a place where your faith is testimony and not a test, and you can grow from where you are, this congregation is good place to start.  This church will love you for who you are and not for who they want you to become, allowing you bloom where wherever you are on your faith journey.

At this time, Salem Evangelical United Church of Christ is going through an Interim Ministry and in the future will begin a search process for a new pastor and  I serve the congregation as an Intentional Interim helping the church during this time of transition between pastors. My role is to help the congregation to stay strong and focused, giving the church time to find just the right person to lead them into, what I see, will be a great future, given by our God.,   I can feel the Holy Spirit moving in this in this congregation.   So glean what you can from the sections of the website and if after looking through it,  you have questions or would like to know more you can reach me either by calling 1-217-222-0601.

So check us out!  Stop by and visit!  We will look forward to meeting you!

In Christ’s service,

Jan Johnson
