A Wholly Methodist
Seventh Day Worship Service!

Yep! That's right!. Every Saturday afternoon (the 7th day of the week) a Sabbath worship service is conducted in the Hope House of the Pleasant Street United Methodist Church located at 6 Pleasant Street right here in Salem.

This Sabbath worship service is open to all wishing to commemorate God's own Holy Day. And, to remember His Fourth Commandment that, like the other nine, was etched in stone as an "eternal" remembrance. So, let us so “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy." 

(Ex. 20:8 NIV)

Please consider joining in Sabbath Day worship with other Methodist at the Hope House at 3:00 p.m. every Saturday afternoon. And, with that being said:

See you then?!

​​!!! PLEASE NOTE !!!

Unfortunately, due to the expected winter weather predicted to hit our part of the world this Sunday morning, it has been determined it is best that worship service for this Sunday, January 20th is, and will be, cancelled! So please note: SUNDAY WORSHIP FOR JAN. 20th IS CANCELLED to be resumed next Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 9:00 a.m..

This cancelation will also be  announced on WMUR-TV Saturday evening and no later than Sunday morning.

Thank you for posting the item about the 2 honor's that Wally received from Senator Chris Sununu. We are very proud of Wally for all his hard work and dedication to public service and service to our church community. He and Nancy were always the definition of "Public Service" at its best.

"One Exceptional Man!"

Recently our very own Wally Stickney received two well deserved honors. One was a Commendation from the Governor of New Hampshire, Christopher Sununu, and the Executive Council citing Wally's many accomplishments over thirty years of civil service, both at the State and National levels.

​Wally also received the 2018 Sununu-Roy Public Service Legacy Award for his years of service to the Republican Party, the Town of Salem, the State of New Hampshire and to the United State of America, itself.

I am sure all of us at the NSUMC know of Wally's many good works and of his endlessly kind, loving and gentlemanly approach to all. Wally has been and still is a blessing to his community and to our church.  Let us all unceasingly pray for Wally and his beloved friendship to the church and to all that know him.  May God continuously bless Wally in the Power and Love of His Holy Spirit!

​The Lynchpin Commandment!

So, you know the Ten Commandments, right? But do you know which commandment is the lynchpin of them all? Do you know the one commandment that ties together all the other nine, and without its presence and position in the lineup, there exists a void and separation between the remaining nine other commandments?

If you would like to learn what that all important lynchpin commandment is, just...​

​​​​​​​​​​​Thoughts From our Pastor

Rev. David E. Svenson

Jan. 9, 2019 

Wow!  What a great welcome Linda and I experienced Sunday at your church.  The warmth and kindness we experienced was wonderful.  As christians we are called to be hospitable and you surely were this past Sunday.

Some of you may remember the TV show of the past, “Cheers.”  One line from the show’s song was, “a place where everyone remembers your name.”  Isn’t that most people expect of a church?  A place where you are not just a client, or a statistic, or a problem. A place where you are seen as a person of value, a child of God who is accepted for who we are.

We seek to call people into relationship with God as we know God in Christ.  One of our greatest witnesses to the love we have known is how we relate to one another and how we welcome the stranger into our midst.  What I have seen of North Salem UMC is a very positive view of your witness through welcoming and relating to one another.  I thank God that we can journey together for the next six months.

​​​​It's not a secret...

...but do you know about God's Week, God's seven day/seven thousand year Week?  Consider what Peter wrote in his letter: 2 Peter, Chapter 3:3-4,8-9

"...scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, 'Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.' "

And more:

"But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness..."
