The Corps Community Center is the focus of the spiritual work of The Salvation Army in Shreveport. Our “neighborhood church” has a Christian congregation whose members accept the Army’s Articles of Faith and Principles of Living, and are called “Soldiers.” Soldiers along with others from the community attend worship services and find spiritual guidance from The Salvation Army “Officers,” who are the pastors and ordained ministers.
Not only does The Corps Community Center serve as church, but also as a community center with meeting halls for our Senior Citizens and Holiday programs.
Many of those who use the Center are not Salvationists and do not have to be. People in crisis, teens with time on their hands, families needing a safe place for recreation, seniors who no longer feel a purpose, are among those who make frequent visits to the Centers.
Community Care ministry sends Salvation Army volunteers to hospitals, nursing homes, and directly to the homebound to provide a listening ear, a caring heart and a helping hand. Volunteers from each of the Corps visit in their areas.
