ABOUT OUR CHURCH Within the Salvation Army Church, Christian faith is expressed through active service. The vision of The Salvation Army has always been to lead men and women into a proper relationship with God. The Army recognizes that physical, emotional and social restoration must go hand in hand with spiritual rebirth. The Army practices an integrated ministry, uniting spiritual, social and physical support. Operations of The Salvation Army are supervised by trained, commissioned officers who proclaim the gospel and serve as administrators, teachers, caregivers pastoral counselors, youth leaders and musicians. These men and women have dedicated their lives, skills and service completely to God.

A note from our new program Director Hello Kroc Community, Rachel Mutchler I am so excited for the coming of summer and all the fun new programs Program Director we will be offering! Change never seems to be easy but it can be invigorating. We have, over the last couple of months, seen multiple changes here at the Ashland Salvation Army Kroc Center. From new faces to new programs and as the sun starts shining, the weather begins to warm and trees begin to bloom so to do we.
This summer will bring old favorites like our Movie Under the Stars night, Professor Atom’s Wacky Wednesdays, VBS and of course RJ’s spraypark as well as new programs such as stained glass art, leather tooling and our Back to School Bash. Whether you are here for classes, cooling off with the kids or fellowshipping with other guests I can’t wait to see all the smiling summer faces. maurerphotography.com

Join Us Thursday July 6, 7pm @ Reagan Elementary for a Free Performance PERFORMANCE PIECE: A WRINKLE IN TIME Adapted for the stage by Morgan Gould. Based on the classic Newbury Award winning children’s’ book by Madeleine L’Engle. It is a 50 minute one-act play. One of literature’s most fierce and enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back – braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, she’s joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O’Keefe and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1. Love CAN overcome evil and 2. There IS such a thing as a tesseract. This play is based on one of the great works of literature for children. Besides being an exciting story, its messages of individuality, nonconformity, friendship and courage is great for anyone who has ever felt “different” or lonely or who have wrestled with loss. It celebrates the power of individuality and bravery and love.
SYNOPSIS: A Wrinkle in Time is the story of Meg Murry, a high-school-aged girl who is transported on an adventure through time and space with her younger brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin O’Keefe to rescue her father, a gifted scientist, from the evil forces that hold him prisoner on another planet. At the beginning of the book, Meg is a homely, awkward, but loving girl, troubled by personal insecurities and her concern for her father, who has been missing for over a year. Together, the three battle the hate and evil with their own love and bravery.
