As we distance ourselves physically,
know we are together spiritually!
Dear Members of First Presbyterian Church, Salem, Ohio,
I am retiring from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) at the end of this year due to health reasons. My current health status regarding my diabetes requires me to take time away from ministry and tend to my well-being. I informed the Session of my decision and they accepted it with regrets. Session agreed that I will work through December 31, 2020.
My time at FPC Salem has been a blessing for which I am truly grateful. I thank everyone, especially the Session, for all their good work this year while the church has been in transition and in dealing with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. I pray for the completion of the Pastor Search process and for the future success of the church.
God’s blessings to everyone at First Presbyterian Church of Salem. Sincerely,
Rev. Paul K. Phillips Interim Pastor

Until further notice, FPC Salem’s church building is closed. The Governor and the State Health Department issued a health order that all Ohioans stay home, unless you work in an essential business. Unfortunately, the church is not considered essential although we know better. This is another precaution against the spread of the coronavirus and was made effective at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, March 23rd.
