Thank you for visiting our website. Our hope is that this will be a place where you can find direction, refreshment, friendship, and family. You may have questions about The Salvation Army. Is it really a church? Yes! We are part of the universal Christian church and are committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Christ. Our ministry is motivated by the love of God and our mission is simple, "Heart to God & Hand to Man." If you are looking for a church home, perhaps you will consider giving us a try. We have a variety of programs to meet the growing needs of today's family.

"A man from Samaria then came traveling along the road. When he saw the man, he felt sorry for him ... He treated his wounds... and took him to an inn where he took care of him. The next morning he gave the innkeeper two silver coins and said, "Please take care of the man..." Then Jesus asked, "Which one was the real neighbor to the man who was beaten up by robbers?" The teacher answered, "The one who showed pity." Jesus said, "Go and do the same!".   -Luke 10:33-37
