Salem is a Christian congregation that's been serving people in the greater Ann Arbor, Michigan area for more than 175 years. We're a member of the WELS.


The six weeks preceding Holy Week are known as Lent. This is a time for prayer and repentance as we recall the sacrifice Jesus made for us through his death as payment for our sins.

Lent gives us enduring reminders of the devotion, the treachery, the commitment, the betrayal, the love, the hatred of sinful mankind and a perfect Savior. This year, our area pastors will bring us memorable devotions under the general theme: "In the Garden". We will see Jesus in the Garden of Promise, the Garden of Proclamation, the Garden of Repentance, the Garden of Passion, the Garden of Peace, and the Garden of Paradise.

Our special mid-week services begin on Ash Wednesday on 10 February and continue through 16 March.

Please join us for these special services on each Wednesday evening at 7 pm.

Sunday School

It is our joy as well as our responsibility to teach our children the precious message of our Savior. With this in mind, our staff look forward each week to sharing with you as parents this great joy. Sunday School is in the Family Ministry Center (FMC) beginning at 8:30 AM every Sunday.

Proverbs 22:6, Matthew 19:14

Adult Bible Studies

We are currently working through a study of the book of Romans. Romans was originally written to expound the basic truths of Christianity, so it will give us a good opportunity to study the main things that Christians should know about the Bible. Martin Luther said this about the book of Romans: "This epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and is truly the purest gospel. It is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but also that they should occupy themselves with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul. We can never read it or ponder over it too much; for the more we deal with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes."
Please note that you will not be asked to read anything in class unless you volunteer! Hope to see you there!
