The Salvation Army of Philadelphia is our mission of the month for January. Their mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. The Salvation Army’s programming operates from 16 community centers and residential facilities throughout the Philadelphia region through programs such as soup kitchens, homeless day care services, overnight shelters, rehabilitation centers, and daily meals. They are committed to the fight against hunger, providing food packages and warm meals to people in need. The Salvation Army’s social services also encompass a wide range of programs to help individuals and families who are struggling with poverty and other difficult circumstances. Motivated by the love of God, as a leader in Christian faith-based human services, The Salvation Army is committed to serve the whole person, body and soul, with integrity and respect, using creative solutions to positively transform lives. The Army receives some assistance from other mission groups and the government but approximately half of its budget is provided from local organizations and churches like ours so please give generously to this worthy cause.
