We service Plainfield and surrounding Townships

We exist to meet human needs wherever, whenever, and however we can through programs that serve the mind, body, and soul.

Where do we serve?

We are an inclusive community offering both church and social services.  Though anyone is welcome to attend our church services, we extend our hand of service to those in need who live in Arbor, Avon Park, Fanwood, North Plainfield, Plainfield, Scotch Plains, South Plainfield, Warren, and Watchung.

The Salvation Army feeds an average of 156,000 every single day in the U.S.

In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, our programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. This approach focuses on meeting the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of each person and helps move many from hungry to fully healed.

The Salvation Army meets the needs of Plainfield and surrounding townships through:

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.

Food Pantry

By supplying free fresh produce, canned goods, and healthy frozen items, our food pantries provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need to maintain their independence and dignity.

In addition to the food pantry, we also provide toiletries and diapers for those in need.

Soup Kitchen

From sit-down programs that provide nutritious hot meals and valuable human interaction, to mobile meals delivering sustenance to those who cannot reach a food distribution center, to feeding programs across our hundreds of shelters and residential facilities, we help the most vulnerable members of society escape the daily burdens of food insecurity.

Music Night

The Salvation Army introduces people of all ages to the beauty of the arts, helping them to use their talents to glorify God and bless those around them. From playing in The Salvation Army band to singing in the choir to leading Sunday worship and spreading Christmas cheer at one of our Red Kettles, we offer numerous performance opportunities and community programs for aspiring artists.

Prayer and Bible Study

Mid-week 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.

Men's Ministries

Ministry groups provide opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship. The groups plan projects, events, retreats, and experiences to improve their communities and promote a closeness to God.

Women's Ministries

The Salvation Army Women’s Ministries is an International Fellowship of Women of all ages. It was inaugurated in 1907 to provide a wide range of activities based on these fourfold aims: Worship, Education, Fellowship, and Service.
