"The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace."

Psalm 29:11

WORSHIP SERVICE 10:45am Church Service

Sunday School Classes for all ages start at 9:45am.

Our church is Non-Denomination, Weslyian Holiness in our doctrine. We are egalitarian in our practice, meaning that men and women have the same access to leadership, preaching, and teaching. Every other week Captain Anthony and Captain Lisa alternate preaching. If you plan on visiting, we would encourage you to visit at least twice to get the full picture of what our Sunday Services look and feel like.

Orange • Sundays, 9:45am

Every Sunday join us for our Orange Sunday School program. Orange is a program that introduces and deepens our students understanding of the Bible, Faith, and God through activities and experiences emphasizing parent and small group relationships. Students play games, sing songs, and complete small group activities that highlight specific Bible verses and stories highlighting a real life application for them in their daily lives.

Junior Church • Sundays, 10:45am

Every Sunday our students join our church family for a time of worship before departing for Junior Church. Junior Church is a time for them to grow in relationship with God as well as one another by taking a moment to reflect on a verse or Biblical principle and engage in fun activities.

 

Junior Soldiers

Students between the ages of 7-14 who wish to deepen their relationship with Christ and enter into a discipleship program have the opportunity to enroll as Junior Soldiers. The Junior Soldier prep course and classes develop spiritual awareness, increase knowledge of the Bible, and help youth learn how to grow closer to God. Junior Soldiers also learn about the history, principles, and practices of the Salvation Army and have extra opportunities for leadership and volunteering.

Weekly Worship

Mid-week Bible Studies give an opportunity to dig deeper into God’s Word to gain understanding, knowledge and wisdom. We can live more powerful lives and expect to experience the joy and peace that comes with walking close to the Lord.

Join us for this fourfold program that encompasses worship, education, fellowship, and service. This group is free and is open to any woman who would like to come and be a part.

Join us for fellowship, as we study God's word and how it applies to our lives today.

    Mission: Literacy is a scripture-based multicultural literacy curriculum that raises children’s reading skills while they learn 30 Bible stories. Mission: Literacy was developed by the American Bible Society and is designed to not only help students in school but to also equip them with character-building scriptures for daily living. Students will use Bible stories, Bible-related crafts, games, and songs to help them improve their reading and writing skills.

    Class sizes are kept small so that children receive individualized attention so space is limited. Email ministry@tsawhitecenter.org for more information.

Captains Anthony & Lisa Barnes

Senior Pastors

Captain Anthony Barnes was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Having been raised in challenging circumstances, he understands the importance of being a resource to the community. Anthony refused to let those challenges define him, and with the help of dedicated community leaders, he was able to see beyond those challenges. Anthony now holds three degrees and is dedicated to being one of those dedicated community leaders that supports children and families, helping them to see beyond their own circumstances. Anthony has a passion for mentoring, and developing leaders. As a Salvation Army Officer, he considers it a privilege to serve as a minister, administrator, and an overall resource to the community wherever need may be. He shares this role with his wife Lisa, and is a father to two amazing children.

Captain Lisa Barnes is a first generation Salvationist who came to The Salvation Army through a food box as her mother was caught in the grip of addiction.

Lisa is passionate about Social Justice, loving those in the margins, fully being herself, while living and sharing Jesus. Prior to Seattle White Center, she has ministered in Portland, Oregon; San Francisco, California; Salinas, California; and Phoenix, Arizona. Lisa is the author of a book called Love to a Whore's Daughter; Life and Faith Through the Lens of Grace and Redemption. She also wrote a guided journal called BRAVE; Thoughts and Acts as part of an empowerment program for girls in foster care.

She has her Bachelor’s degree in Counseling for Christian Ministries. She loves art; both in creating it and enjoy others creations. Lisa loves playing bass and acoustic guitar, and drinking way too much coffee while visiting with friends. She’s been married to her handsome best friend for thirteen years. They live life with their two beautiful beige babies, their seven year old fat cat, and their German Shepherd puppy.
