Salvation Army of Gwinnett Hosts Annual Luncheon

The Salvation Army of Gwinnett County hosted its annual luncheon this past Friday, May 8th, at Sonesta Gwinnett Place. The luncheon featured Salvation Army National Commander, Commissioner David Jeffery, as a special guest speaker.

Elliot Brack was honored during the luncheon with the prestigious Others Award, which honors an individual or organization exemplifying an extraordinary spirit or services to others.  This award is one of the highest honors given by The Salvation Army internationally.

“We are so thankful to have supporters like Elliott who are just as passionate about helping our neighbors in need as we are,” said Captain Andrew Miller, Salvation Army Lawrenceville Corps Officer.

Also featured was a client testimony highlighting a family assisted by The Salvation Army after being provided stable housing, which strengthened their ability to be self-sufficient and thrive. Proceeds from the luncheon will help fund The Salvation Army of Gwinnett’s homelessness prevention, financial emergency assistance and children’s conservatory programs.

“Every day The Salvation Army of Gwinnett sees the promise of a different future for individuals in need. It is the greatest good we do and the stories we should share,” said Captain Miller.

The Salvation Army of Atlanta Hosts 125 Hours of Prayer

From May 4 – 9, people all across the Metro Atlanta area will join together over the course of 125 hours to seek God and hear His voice. The Salvation Army Metro Atlanta and a number of churches and community organizations will host a week of continual prayer called Atlanta Prays.

Atlanta Prays is an opportunity to step away from the normal routines of daily life and enter into an extended time to experience God and connect with one another through worship, prayer, fasting, and fellowship. The invitation to pray is open to anyone who desires to unite in prayer as a part of the Body of Christ.

The central prayer location will be The Salvation Army Temple Corps at 2090 N Druid Hills Road Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30329. Click here for a complete list of prayer locations and times.

Our Metro Atlanta community is faced with …

  • Being a sex trafficking capital
  • Increasing crime and violence
  • On-going generational poverty
  • A culture often void of acknowledging God
  • Lacking Christian morals and values where our children are being brought up and exposed to

The invitation to pray is free and open to the public. For more information, daily topics and prayer locations visit
