Within The Salvation Army Church, Christian faith is expressed through active service. The vision of The Salvation Army has always been to lead men and women into a proper relationship with God. The Army recognizes that a physical, emotional and social restoration must go hand in hand with spiritual rebirth. The Army practices an integrated ministry, uniting spiritual, social and physical support.
Operations of The Salvation Army are supervised by trained, commissioned officers who proclaim the gospel and serve as administrators, teachers, social workers, counselors, youth leaders and musicians. These men and women have dedicated their lives, skills and service completely to God.
A distinguishing feature in the religious life of The Salvation Army is the active participation of its members. Corps community centers provide church services and are the hubs for spiritual development. In typical Salvation Army pragmatic style, the church is organized in a military manner, using military terms throughout.
The Corps building is sometimes known as the "Citadel." The pastor serves as an "Officer." Members are "Soldiers." This sphere of activity is known as the "Field." Instead of joining The Salvation Army, members are "Enrolled" after signing the "Soldiers Covenant."
Soldiers are expected to accept responsibility in the work of The Salvation Army, and whenever possible, participate in Army meetings. Soldiers may teach Sunday-school classes, play musical instruments, join the band, assist the Corps officer in visitation among the poor and sick, or aid in general social work. Soldiers abstain from the use of alcoholic beverages, drugs and tobacco.
The Salvation Army's Worship services are open to all.

The preteen and teenage years are complex, full of changes and questions. Young people are trying to discover who they are, where they fit in and how to make an impact on the world around them. Moral values are internalized and made their own. They’re discovering what’s important, who they can trust, what’s worth fighting for and why they should step out of their comfort zones to take a stand.
To help adolescents on their journey, The Salvation Army has developed a discipleship course specifically for preteens and teens called Corps Cadets. This is one of the most vital programs in a Salvation Army corps (center for worship and service).
Sundays | 9:45 am
Sunday School provides participants of all ages with a weekly opportunity to learn more about God, Jesus and the Bible on Sunday mornings just prior to worship services. The Salvation Army uses a popular Christian Sunday School Curriculum known as "HOPE SHARE". Sunday School incorporates fellowship and fun along with Bible learning to give participants a positive way to enhance their spiritual lives. It is a time for believers to gather together as God's family in mutual encouragement and support. The Salvation Army believes Sunday School to be a key element of a vital youth ministry and an important tool for building strong families.
Nurseries are available for infants and preschoolers. School-age children look at the scriptures in a new and fun way that is appealing to kids. Adults are challenged each week as they study through the books of the Bible and discuss Biblical topics.

The Home League is a four-fold program focusing on education, service, fellowship and worship. The Home League gives counsel, direction and encouragement to all women. It aids in developing a well-rounded personality and lend spiritual guidance leading to a deeper understanding of God and His way of life. In developing the spiritual life of the individual woman, the home is thereby spiritually strengthened. Our aim is to bring women to an awareness of the social, economic and spiritual problems of today, and encouraging their personal involvement in building a better society. The ultimate goal of the Home League is to win women to Christ, making every effort to link them and their families, if unchurched, to the Army.
