Who We Are

We see Salem United Methodist Church as a dynamic and spirit-filled congregation, Impacting Barrington, the United States, and the World through prayer, personal and Congregational efforts to bring the love of God to people at their point of need.


It is the vision of Salem United Methodist Church to be:

A church that actively seeks to grow with God through the development of a relationship with Jesus Christ through study, mission and prayer.

A church that actively connects Christ and community through worship, prayer, outreach and missions.

A church Committed to making Christian Disciples and growing the body of Christ.


Salem United Methodist Church is a historic church that started as an Evangelical United Brethren Church and became United Methodist in 1968 when the EUB’s and the Methodist Merged. Having gone through additions and renovations, the church has been at it’s current location since 1893. The most recent renovation was completed in the spring of 2006, adding a welcome center, making the building handicap accessible through an Elevator and platform lift and also adding air conditioning to the worship center. The historic charm of the building remains intact. We recently celebrated our 125th Anniversary.
