Dubois County Herald - June 9th 2017
HUNTINGBURG — At 175 years old, Salem United Church of Christ in Huntingburg is almost as old as the town it calls home.
Founded in 1842 as the Evangelical Lutheran and Reformed Protestant Congregation, Salem United Church of Christ began as a German immigrant church built on land donated to the congregation by Col. Jacob Geiger, the man who built the first house in Dubois County in 1837 and is known as the founder of Huntingburg. Today, the church stands in its third building — built in 1889 for $99.95 — on the same property Geiger donated in 1843 on the corner of Fourth and Walnut streets. The congregants pride themselves on being “doers of the Word,” that is people who engage in worship, study, sharing, service and prayer. Their myriad ministries show the congregants’ dedication the community and their commitment to creating “a church that works.”
Possibly the church’s most well-known ministry is the medical equipment service. The church has a collection of home-use medical equipment such as crutches, lift chairs and hospital beds, that people can borrow to help them return home from hospitals or rehabilitation centers sooner. Community members and Salem congregants alike have access to the equipment.
“It has become well enough known throughout the area that a lot of times people who aren’t members of our church, when one of their loved one passes away and they have that kind of equipment, they will bring it here,” said Pam Grewe, 175th committee chairman. “They know it will be shared with the community.”
Salem drew quite a crowd for the Get Out and Serve Day in September. Of the 500 participants in the community service day, 100 were from Salem. Salem’s pastors and congregants also played a role in starting both the annual ecumenical Thanksgiving dinner that brings parishioners from all the county churches together and Shared Abundance, the local food bank. Salem still donates to Shared Abundance, particularly to the backpack program that gives kids a backpack full of school supplies during the back-to-school season. The church also takes an annual mission trip to either Belize or a city in the U.S. This year, missionaries will be serving in the Emmaus House in St. Louis, a non-profit that provides round-the-clock services to adults with special needs.
Salem also works to bring worship services to those who can’t attend church through television and radio broadcasts. Once a month, members also hold a service at The Waters of Huntingburg.
Although the current congregants at Salem are focused on the community, the church wasn’t always so community-focused. It really wasn’t until about the 1960s that the congregation decided to take on a more outward focus, Pastor Mark West said. Prior to that, the church was a tightly-knit German immigrant church focused on taking care of its congregants and holding services in German until World War II.
