Salvation Army to celebrate first-ever expansion in Terrace

The Salvation Army has a busy weekend ahead with a grand opening at their current location and then moving part of their ministry to a new location.

A grand opening of their thrift store expansion serves up cake as part of the celebration Aug. 5.

It’s the first expansion for the store that will take over the church area and double the size of the thrift store, Captain Deb VanderHeyden said.

The extra space will allow the army to now accept furniture, she said. And with city council voting to adopt the bylaw text amendment to allow the former Terrace Lutheran Church building to become a church again, the Salvation Army will move its church into that building.

Since Church in the Park takes place Aug 6 during Riverboat Days, the new church location’s grand opening will likely be Aug. 13, VanderHeyden said.

“The building is gorgeous. They’ve done a bang-up job,” she said, referring to the renovations to the inside and outside of their new church building.

Next is to construct a new food bank at the front of the old thrift store, she added.
