What Is the Salvation Army ?

A thrift store?

A disaster relief agency?

A red kettle?

A homeless shelter?

A church?

The Salvation Army is all these things and more. We are here to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to meet needs without discrimination. These core values were formed back in 1865, when The Salvation Army was founded by William and Catherine Booth in England. "The Christian Mission," as it was first called, was a response to the poor, marginalized and underprivilaged masses who were otherwise being overlooked in the east side of downtown London. As the movement grew, it acquired military terminology to help organize the social service and evangelistic efforts. It also represented a direct action against the personal, societal and spiritual forces that existed to oppress certain groups of people.

Although there are many Salvation Army facilities with wide range of programs available, each facility strives to provide the services that are best fit for the community. At The Salvation Army of Plymouth, we are a church (Corps) and a community center. We have a worship service on Sundays at 11 am, and we have several programs for fellowship such as Bible Study, Women's Ministries and Men's Fellowship. Our office has a social services program (Family & Community Ministries department) where help meet the needs of those who are struggling financially in our community. Our Community Center offers various programs throughout the year and these programs are open to all. Please browse our website to see all we have to offer at The Salvation Army of Plymouth.
