How The Salvation Army is responding to the ongoing emergency in Northern California

The Salvation Army Serving Thousands Of Meals Daily To Kincade Fire Evacuees
Nonprofit activates additional corps and volunteers from across Northern California to answer the growing call for help

The Salvation Army is serving more than 2,200 per day to evacuees at five shelters for evacuees from the Kincade Fire. Approximately 200,000 people are under evacuation orders as the wildfire burns near Windsor, Healdsburg, and Kellog. Thousands more have been put on notice to evacuate as winds are expected to pick back up again this week.

At time of posting, CAL FIRE reported the Kincade Fire at more than 66,000 acres and was 5% contained. It started early Friday morning northeast of Geyserville. The fire agency reported at least 96 structures have been destroyed and 16 others damaged. More than 4,100 fire personnel are working to keep this fire from spreading into heavily populated areas.

As one of the nation’s major emergency relief organizations, The Salvation Army is on the ground before, during and after a disaster strikes.

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 seven 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.
