About The Salvation Army
Doing the Most Good for the Most People in the Most Need.
The most basic unit of Salvation Army program services delivery is The Salvation Army Corps Community Center. These facilities are our most direct link to the children, teens, adults, and elderly individuals and families within a community.
The Salvation Army Carlisle Corps Community Center is located in the heart of historic Carlisle. Majors John and Alma Riley, the leaders of the corps are called "corps commanding officer." They provide not only administrative leadership but they also are the center's pastors.
In keeping with The Salvation Army's mission to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to promote the alleviation of human suffering, corps programs range from Sunday worship services, Bible Studies, and Vacation Bible School to crisis alleviation case management, feeding programs, and transitional housing programs. Other typical programs include a senior center, character-building recreational programs, leadership and life skills development and much more.
The Salvation Army is looking for people who will step forward to join in the peaceful, joyful fellowship of believers (in Jesus Christ) and the ongoing war against human suffering. If you are interested in attending, whether for church on Sunday or involvement during the week -- whether as a volunteer, curious visitor, participant, or would-be soldier -- simply stop by. You are always warmly welcome.
