Who are we?

Springfield Avenue in Newark had historically been a main artery in and out of the City. Prior to the Newark riots, the street was home to many fine stores, restaurants, and businesses. However, following the riots, much of the Avenue was nothing but boarded-up buildings and vacant lots. The Salvation Army at that time had a small storefront outpost which provided weekly worship and youth activities for the local community children. As the needs of the community increased, so did our need for a larger, multi-purpose facility.

In the mid-'70s, The Salvation Army built a new Corps Community Center within a large vacant lot with a gym, worship center, classrooms, and recreational rooms. Senior citizens and youth of all ages sought refuge and security within the confines of the building. As times and needs have changed, so have the programs and services.

Worship Services and Sunday School

Traditional Sunday morning worship combines music, Scripture, prayer and preaching to honor God and serve as a time of reverence and reflection on the Holiness of God. The mission of Sunday school is to develop Christ-like character in ordinary people through time-tested spiritual disciplines of Scripture study and memorization, prayer, and activities.

Bible Study & Prayer Meetings

Prayer Service and Bible Study meetings are designed to be both spiritual and educational. This program offers weekly time to study God’s Word and learn practical applications for the Bible’s teachings. It also includes a time of spiritual encouragement through prayer for the needs of individuals, families, the church, and communities.
