Doing The Most Good

Welcome to The Salvation Army of NWA’s Offical Blog!

Hello there! Welcome to the offical blog of The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas! We’re so glad you stopped by!
 
Maybe you’re wondering to yourself: “What is The Salvation Army? I thought it was just homeless shelters and thrift stores?” You might be surprised to find that The Salvation Army is an international religious and charitable movement. It is a branch of the Christian Church that is organized and operated in military fashion. Members of The Salvation Army include:
  • Officers (Clergy)
  • Slodiers/adherents (Laity)
  • Members of various activity groups and VOLUNTEERS (The Salvation Army could not run without volunteers!)

The Salvation Army is motivated by LOVE FOR GOD and a concern for the NEEDS OF ALL HUMAITY.
