COVID-19 UPDATE – OSHAWA SALVATION ARMY
COVID-19 is a rapidly changing situation and we at The Salvation Army Oshawa want to be vigilant in our response, following all government recommendations, as well as those from Health Canada.
Let us say that our trust and confidence is in God. Our lives are in His hands. We have nothing to fear. We do want to be vigilant to protect the health of each member of our congregation, our staff, our families, and all with whom we come into contact.
In light of these current recommendations, the decision has been made to pause all activities for three weeks until May 3rd effective immediately, including Sunday morning worship services. Recommendations from the government and Health Canada are changing by the hour. We will continue to communicate any changes by phone, website, and social media. You can also call the church office voicemail at 905-436-0011 any time for our latest status.
We are putting plans in place with the vulnerable members of our congregation to ensure their safety and well-being. If you require assistance, know someone who would like a call, or can be of assistance, please let the church office know. The church office will remain open, Monday to Friday, 9am-3pm.
Our downtown Food Bank is still operating Mon-Fri outside the thrift store 9:30-12 noon. The thrift store is closed. We will continue to keep you updated as new information arises.

Although we take this issue very seriously, we know that, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
Please be assured of our prayers.
