We are a baptized people. We are a forgiven people. We are a worshiping people. We are a community of faith seeking to serve our Lord in word and deed in this world.
Belleman’s Church is one of the oldest houses of worship in Berks County, and it dates back to 1746. Our two congregations are the United Church of Christ and Lutheran. We first provided worship services in a log cabin, then moved to the historic Old Church (found on the About us page), and now we worship together in the present building which was originally built in 1924 (pictured left).
The two congregations formed a shared ministry and called one pastor in 2003. Since then we have maintained two congregational identities and one pastor serving both congregations. We worship together in unified services, serve our Lord through united choirs, youth group and committees made up of both congregations. Welcome to Salem Belleman's Church!
Belleman's Church Women organize special presenters and helping to read the lessons in the service. Come Spring, the ladies organize a special reception consisting of snacks following the Confirmation Sunday Service. This fellowship opportunity has become a special part of Belleman’s.
We are proud to host Boy Scout Troop 154.
