Every Corps community center designates space for weekly congregational worship services led by Salvation Army officers, who are ordained ministers. Responding to the spiritual needs of the local community, these services occur on Sunday in Leesburg, FL but may also occur other days of the week on occasion. Sunday school is also offered for all age groups. Members of the congregation are active participants, offering personal testimonies and sharing musical gifts. Congregational hymn singing is accompanied by piano and/or brass ensembles. The public is invited to attend these worship services and can contact The Salvation Army for more information.
   
New & Old Soldiers

Christianity is synonymous with service for the Salvationist. The distinguishing feature in the religious life of The Salvation Army is active participation by its members. Corps community centers are the focus of the Spiritual work and are organized in a military manner, using military terms throughout. The corps building is sometimes known as the "citadel." The pastor serves as an "officer." Members are "soldiers." This sphere of activity is known as the "field." Instead of joining The Salvation Army, members are "enrolled" after signing the "Articles of War." When officers and soldiers die, they are "Promoted to Glory."

Old & New Soldiers (2010)  
   

Soldiers are disciples of Jesus Christ and are expected to accept responsibility in the work of The Salvation Army. Whenever possible, they participate in Army meetings. Soldiers may teach Sunday School classes, play musical instruments, join the band, assist the Corps officer in visitation among the poor and sick, or aid in general social work. Soldiers abstain from the use of alcoholic beverages, drugs and tobacco.
