The Salvation Army Mon Valley Worship and Service Center is thrilled to invite neighbors and friends to a New Building Dedication Service, as it transitions to its new location with its new name. Formerly The Salvation Army Monessen Worship and Service Center, the facility’s new name greater reflects the scope of communities it has always served. Its new location at a church with a full-service kitchen and multiple meeting spaces will allow The Salvation Army to serve even more people to fulfill its mission: to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.



The new building allows The Salvation Army to better serve the Mon Valley in many different capacities. The building itself – a former church – allows The Salvation Army to naturally provide seamless services to the greater community during a major move. The basement has a commercial kitchen, which will be used to prepare food for a mobile feeding truck and will allow The Salvation Army to offer on-site feeding for parishioners and in-house programming.  Another space will be used as a hall for gatherings. It also has a stage that can be used as a secondary area for performances, preaching and movie nights. The building is also more easily accessible to people of all physical abilities. The new space allows The Salvation Army to expand its reach and services to all residents of the Mon Valley area well into the future.



Sunday, March 13, 2022; 11 AM New Building Dedication Service



800 Thompson Avenue, Donora, PA 15033
