Staying Connected While Apart

My Movie

May 9, 2020 Note From the Pastors:

Aloha Salvation Army Gresham Family,

Our Cadet Melissa McQuade will be serving at The Salvation Army Phoenix KROC Center this summer. Continue to keep her in your prayers and if you have a gift you'd like to send to her - please let us know so we can coordinate a package to be mailed to her in Phoenix.

Speaking of new cities - the "moves" or the Change of Appointment for Salvation Army Officers was announced on Wednesday. We praise the Lord that we get to stay in Gresham. We look forward to growing with you in the years to come.

Please keep connected and we will see you soon!

Church Staff Going Above and Beyond

We praise the Lord for such awesome staff who continues to not only roll with whatever may be happening, but are actually taking up leadership in new ways.

Our very small Afterschool Staff (Anthony, Joel, and Melanie) have gone from school pick ups, tutoring, music lessons, and preparing snacks and serving dinners to packing food boxes for the last two months. They were the main crew since the majority of our volunteers couldn't no longer come out. They continued to pack and serve an average of 300 boxes each week.

Dr. Maxine and Marcia are now helping to make sure that food is coordinated for 1500 boxes of feed each week for Operation Share Hope as well as continue with their own responsibilities. The how tos were all unknown. Yet, the staff stepped out in faith and are getting the job done.

Praise the Lord for such awesome men and women of God who continue to serve the community for His glory!

Commissioning Lobby Deadline

Friday, May 22nd, 9pm

This is an online event.

One of the joys of Commissioning every year is the excitement of fellowship that is found in the Lobby of the venue. Salvationists love meeting up with each other, sharing words of affirmation, celebration and prayer with one another. This is something that easily could be missed this year due to our inability to meet together.

This year a virtual lobby will be created. With this in mind, they would like as many Salvationists to send in short 10-15 second video clips of themselves giving a greeting. We can send greetings to Cadet Melissa McQuade or any other person. It can be a word of hope, a scripture, a praise, a prayer…a simple God Bless The Salvation Army.

Their preference is portrait and the videos should be placed in the following folder BY May 22.
