Salem United Methodist Church, Rural Milford, NE

Salem is a delightful rural church built in a Victorian Prairie Gothic style.

The church was constructed in 1893 by a German congregation. In my travels I haven't seen many German Methodist parishes. This is likely a unique congregation within the state of Nebraska.

The interior is strikingly beautiful in its simplicity. A wonderful reflection of the Methodist theology of worship.

The unadorned furnishings of the sanctuary.

No clutter. Just simple, noble architecture.

The overflow / choir area left of the altar.

"Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it." -Luke 11:28

The windows are a mix of various pastel colored panes.

What a wonderful church! I'm very taken back by the simple beauty of this space!
