New Salem is a place for children, youth and adults to hear the Bible story and to be reminded of their identity and belonging as God's child.  It is a place for us to grow in the knowledge of God's love.  It is a place where we use and discover our gifts as we learn how to be disciples of Jesus.  Please visit the "ministries" page where we share the opportunities available through New Salem's faith community.

We are guided by the Word and our Mission Statement and Guiding Principles.

We are located at 7491 Island View Drive NE, Turtle River, Minnesota.  To find us please use our map.  Our congregation is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, ELCA, Northwestern Minnesota ELCA Synod.  Our telephone number is 218-586-2262  email newsalem@paulbunyan.net
