Annual Reports and Publications of Venedocia Ohio's Salem Presbyterian Chruch
Salem Church is located on Main Street, Venedocia. Zion Church was located a few miles SW of Venedocia just south of Jonestown on Jonestown Road. The two sister churches shared the same pastor and usually printed a combined annual report. Zion Church closed in 1978 and its congregation merged with that of Salem Church. The Zion building was torn down in 1998.
Annual reports usually include a message from the pastor, membership lists, death and baptism notices, and detailed church financial information. Before 1979 the original documents contain details of how much money each individual member contributed to the various church funds, printed next to the person's name in the membership list. This personal financial information has been deleted from the scanned church annual reports.
Pubication of Salem Presbyterian Church documents with the removal of personal financial information has been authorized by the church Session at its October 2000 meeting.
