Adult Programs at The Salvation Army Oshawa Temple

 A warm welcome awaits you to our church family. Please join us at any time.  Call our office with any inquiries or should you wish a visit from our pastors (905 436-0011). Our church seeks to lead people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.  We want to be known as a church with a huge welcome mat.  Everyone is invited and everyone who comes through our doors gets loved by us just as they are by God.  We're not perfect, in fact we're all broken people, but we try not to hide our brokenness, not to discriminate against anyone for any reason and not to reject others in their brokenness. We seek to walk together in brokenness knowing that the love of God and our mutual love and acceptance will lead us to wholeness.
