Butterfly Garden

A Certified Monarch Waystation was installed under the pecan tree on Duck Street in 2020. The project was spearheaded by Dr. Annette Cowell with landscaping completed by Cathy Minnick and team of Crosstimbers Landscaping. Lawson Hearp, his boy scout troop, and Salem members installed stone benches and planted the appropriate monarch-attracting plants as Lawson’s Eagle Scout project. We welcome members of the community to enjoy the beauty of the garden in bloom.

Our Story

The Oklahoma Land Run of 1889 brought to an area approximately 10 miles west of Stillwater a number of German Lutheran immigrants from Ukraine, Russia.

A quarter section of land was purchased in the early 1890's. The congregation known as Friedens Kirche gathered beginning in 1892.

Around 1909, the membership voted to move into Stillwater. The congregation was incorporated in 1911 as Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church. The Church was located at 9th and Duncan. The church building was destroyed by fire in 1921 and a new church was built at the same location.

Salem's membership growth led to the sale of the little white building and construction of the present building at Duck and Elm in 1956. The first expansion of the Education Wing was dedicated in 1976. Expansion of the kitchen, parish hall, offices, and education areas were dedicated in 2000. In 2016 the sanctuary was beautified, new stained-glass windows added, and the parking lot was paved.

Salem continues to be a congregation with a strong tie to its history, a commitment to mission and outreach, a desire to offer vibrant and thoughtful worship, and to focus on educating and equipping ourselves in discipleship among all people.
