The Salvation Army is first and foremost a religious institution, where each week members of communities throughout the world gather at Salvation Army corps community centers and centers of service to worship on Sunday. Our theology falls under the Wesleyan-Armenian tradition. (For more about our beliefs, see the Who We Are page.)
In Marion, our Sunday Holiness Meeting (Worship Service) is at 10:30am, with Christian Education (Sunday School) for all ages preceding at 9:15am.
Worship programs are also conducted throughout the week and include:
Men’s & Women’s Ministries, which are four-fold programs with emphasis on Worship, Education, Service, and Fellowship. These groups meet at 6:45pm on Wednesday evenings.
Brass Bands have played a major role throughout Salvation Army history. The Marion Corps Brass Band ministers through music at several events throughout the year. Band members rehearse, and teach youth players, on Wednesday evenings at 5:00pm.
Songsters is a vocal group made up of individuals of all ages who worship and minister through lifting their voices in song. This group rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 5:45pm.
