CORPS COMMUNITY AND WORSHIP CENTERS
The Salvation Army's centers for service, program, and worship are the local Corps Community and Worship Centers. There are 23 sites located throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island
, with varying expressions of worship. A list of telephone numbers are available through this site.
Traditional and nontraditional Sunday worship services are held here. Each Corps Officer (Ordained Minister) has been "commissioned" from The Salvation Army's School for Officer Training, and many have advanced degrees as well. Each Corps Officer husband and wife team are equally ordained and function in all aspects of counseling and ministry.
Parishioners of the Corps are offered a wide variety of programs, including, for youngsters: Sunbeams, Girl Guards, Boys Adventure Corps, Teen Ministries, musical instruction, and bible study and for adults: Women's Ministries, Men's Fellowship, and recreation. These programs are available to the public, as is the opportunity to worship with us.
However, it is important to note, you do not have to be a member of the Corps to receive services or to attend programs.
Each center relates to the community in a variety of ways, with members of the community supporting The Salvation Army on Advisory Boards, Women's Auxiliaries, and outreach through the Service Extension program.
Many Corps Officers serve on local councils or boards, i.e. the United Way or Emergency Food and Shelter Program Review Boards, and also actively participate in other civic organizations, like the Rotary or Kiwanis.
You are invited to attend services or programs at your local operating unit of The Salvation Army at any time, simply call the respective Officer(s) for more information.
