The Salvation Army has been at work in Moose Jaw for over 120 years and is one of the best known churches and social service organizations in the city. One of its international priorities is to “serve suffering humanity”, and the local Corps is actively engaged in many efforts to do just that. Key program priorities include disaster and relief services, Community Care Ministries in extended care facilities and personal care homes, financial trustee services for vulnerable adults, and emergency family services. These programs, operated in Moose Jaw and Assiniboia, are directed by Majors Dan and Wendy Broome, who are officers appointed to this work by The Salvation Army. They are ably supported by over 30 employees and countless volunteers who work to ensure that the Army is committed to ‘Giving hope today`
The most visible and best-known of its operations would be its Thrift Store and its associated sorting centre, where donations of good used clothing, household items, furniture and other goods are received from generous citizens of the City and surrounding areas. Profits from the sale of these good go towards developing and maintaining programs to provide food, clothing and practical assistance to families and individuals in emergency need and to support the Army’s Community Care Ministries in extended care facilities and personal care homes. In addition, hundreds of children are sponsored to attend holiday camps at Beaver Creek Bible Camp near Saskatoon.
Through its church, opportunities for Christian worship and service are provided through Sunday worship services, weekly Bible study programs, children and youth ministries and community service opportunities.
Our Church is a diverse family of healthy congregations, assemblies, and ministries expressing the good news of God's kingdom that transforms lives and communities worldwide.
