Brief Summary:
There are 13 employees that live in the
Paradise, Magalia, and Oroville areas.
Six are employees of the Paradise Thrift Store, which was lost in the fire.
It is confirmed that 3 of our employees have lost their homes. Although not confirmed, it is believed that all 13 employees suffered the same tragedy.
As of today, there are no reports of loss of life to our Del Oro family or relatives.

Personnel from Auburn, Roseville, Santa Rosa, Yuba City and Reno are assisting. Our teams are providing three meals a day, snacks, beverages, essential items, and emotional and spiritual care. The devastation is immense, but our officers, staff and volunteers persevere. We're currently serving
at 5 different locations in Chico, Oroville and 3 county fairgrounds. Keep them in your prayers.

The Salvation Army – it’s a name familiar to just about everyone. But, there is so much more to The Salvation Army than meets the eye! In every community where you find The Salvation Army, you will discover a ministry that is unique. And yet, the same mission drives us all: to actively reach out to others in the name of Jesus Christ, and to introduce each one to a loving relationship with God.

For more than a hundred and thirty years (since 1882), first in Oakland and then in Concord, The Salvation Army has been a vital part of the East Bay’s evangelical and social community.

Although it’s well known for its social ministries, The Salvation Army is less well known as a thriving and relevant mainstream christian church. You can find us at 3950 Clayton Road in Concord,  and everyone is made welcome at our vibrant weekly worship services and our programs for youth and music outreach.

Our exciting Sunday morning worship starts at 11:00 am and is usually finished by 12:15 pm. A highlight of family worship is a “food and fellowship” time immediately after the service.

The preaching is powerful and bible-based and you probably can't worship anywhere else where a brass band accompanies the singing every week! Looking for a spiritual home? Come join our Army!

Call the Church Office at (925) 676-6180 for more information.
