Who we are

We are an historic, multi-generational, traditional church seeking to worship and live the way of Jesus together in this ever changing world.

Where we come from

Our congregation began in the wilderness of Adams County in 1856 when four German immigrants formed a congregation where they could belonged. We've been serving Adams County ever since.

Where we are going

We aim to be followers of Jesus, who bring the way of Jesus to our community. We want to see the life changing love of Jesus come to all the people of our community.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, that we'd love to meet you, serve you, and introduce you to Jesus.

If you need someone to talk with, we're ready to listen. If you need prayer, we're ready to pray. If you need a community to worship and connect, we're ready to welcome you into ours. Just let us know what you need.

If you are a happy member of a church community, you can still partner with us.

Our Pastor


The Reverand Chris Hirschy

Hi, I'm Chris! I've been the pastor here at Salem Magley Church since December of 2017. I grew up in Adams County, but never dreamed I've have the opportunity to pastor a church here. All that changed in 2017 when I called to be the next pastor here at Salem Magley! I hope and pray for nothing less than to see all of Adams County transformed and remade by the love and grace of Jesus. It doesn't matter who you are or what you've done, Jesus loves you, and he can remake you. Feel free to connect with my via email or on social media. I hope we meet soon!
