When I mention the name Salvation Army, the first thing that pops into the minds of so many folks is Christmas; the kettles, Angel Tree or the Thrift Stores. Generally most people are unaware of our core foundation and that is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ which is done through many programs and outreach initiatives; mainly our Corps (churches) that can be found all over the world! Nashville has 4 in the metro area, Laotian Corps, which is found on Paragon Mills Rd, off of Nolensville Rd, Hispanic Corps located on Park Avenue off of Charlotte Pike, Citadel Corps located in Madison on Neely’s Bend Rd and our newest addition our Berry Street Worship Center located on Berry Street in East Nashville. All four churches offer Sunday services, Bible classes, children and youth ministry and programs for the aging, which we like to call our “Golden Agers!”
I am including a fantastic article that was published in The Tennessean a couple of weeks ago about one of our Corps, Berry Street Worship Center. It provides great insight into the dynamic of a SA Church, which tends to be similar in doctrine to that of a Nazarene church. It allows you to see and experience the mission and understand that yes, we are dedicated to meet human need in His name without discrimination through our social services, but most importantly, we are here to meet the human need as it relates to knowing who Jesus is and that life truly blossoms and begins with Him.
Enjoy the article and we’d love to see you one Sunday morning…..you won’t be disappointed!
