Welcome West Salem Trinity UMC! We are a body of believers who recognize the importance of relationships. First and foremost our relationship with Jesus Christ, but also our relationship with others: believers and non-believers alike. We invite you and your family to be our guest on any Sunday morning for any or all of our activities. We have Sunday school for all ages and our worship style is casual, but most importantly here you can come face to face with the Living God! Can't make it on Sunday?  That is ok, we have lots of other ways you can get involved and worship God!  See the calendar tab for upcoming events.  You can also check us out on Sunday mornings at 10:30 or anytime after as we stream and record our Worship service live on Facebook-just click on the icon below to go to our Facebook page.



We are located in Mt. Vernon, IL at the corner of Broadway and 42nd Streets just east of Interstates 57/64. Our facility is fully accessible. Office hours are 10:00am to 2:30pm, Monday through Friday and you can reach us by email (see the Contact Us link below) or by calling 618-242-4755 during office hours. The Church office is closed on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
