About The Salvation Army

Doing the Most Good for the Most People in the Most Need.

The Salvation Army Carlisle Corps is located in the heart of historic Carlisle at 20 E Pomfret Street. Majors John and Alma Riley, the leaders of the corps are called "Corps Commanding Officers." They provide not only administrative leadership but they  also are the center's pastors.

In keeping with The Salvation Army's mission to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to promote the alleviation of human suffering, Corps programs range from Sunday worship services, Bible Studies, and Vacation Bible School to crisis alleviation case management, feeding programs, and housing programs. Other programs include a Senior Action Center, character-building recreational programs for youth, leadership and life skills development, and much more.

The Salvation Army is looking for people who will step forward to join in the peaceful, joyful fellowship of believers and the ongoing war against human suffering. If you are interested in attending, whether for church on Sunday or involvement during the week -- whether as a volunteer, curious visitor, participant, or would-be soldier -- simply stop by. You are always warmly welcome.
