Our church was planted by a group of Finnish people in 1933. The first meeting was held on the corner of Court and Van Horne streets in Thunder Bay (known then as Port Arthur). First pastor was Matti Hämäläinen.
Today Saalem Church consists of two language services, Finnish and English.
Our heart cry is to invite everyone to experience Life in Christ.
We strongly believe in God’s transforming power to change lives. Saalem is a warm, inviting place where everyone is welcome.
Our English worship service gathers on Sundays at 11:00 am and our Finnish service is held at 2:00 pm.
Ablaze, our midweek revival meeting that focuses on the Presence of God, is held on Thursdays at 7pm.
