HISTORICAL NOTE

This church was organized in 1901 by a group of Germans from Russia recently settled in the "North Bottom" area of Lincoln. First named the German Evangelical Congregational Salem Church, the congregation erected a building at 9th and Charleston Streets. This church was affiliated with the German Congregational Church of America and became a member of the United Church of Christ when that body was formed in the early 1960s. In 1967 the Salem Church merged with nearby St. John's United Church of Christ to form Faith United Church of Christ. The new church occupies the old Salem Church buildings and the St. John's property was sold.
