The Salvation Army Richmond Citadel Going Back to its Roots with Open Air Service
On Sunday, November 13th, from 4 to 6 p.m., The Salvation Army Central Virginia will conduct an open air service at its Richmond Citadel Corps, 5327 Orcutt Lane. This service will be a throwback to the old days and will include brass music, food and a time of praise and worship.
"The overall vision that God has given me is that people from our community, our neighbourhood, will walk hand in hand to our Corps and they will realize that The Salvation Army and Christ can enrich their lives," said Captain Ryan Brown, Richmond Citadel Corps Officer.
"We are literally going to knock on doors and build a bigger and better partnership with our neighbors, bringing people together through Christ."
"These types of open air meetings were very popular in the first part of the 20th century and by looking back, we can also look forward," said Jeff Baldwin, Public Relations Director for The Salvation Army Central Virginia.
"We welcome area churches to partner with our efforts...together we will change lives in southside Richmond," added Brown.
"We all serve one master, Jesus Christ."
