Thanks for joining in the celebration to mark the beginning of our NEW Division, the Potomac Division of the USA Southern Territory! It was a historic event where we celebrates our past, rejoices in the present, and looked ahead to the future with much anticipation and faith for what the Lord will do in and through us.

As we are connected by the Potomac River that flows through each of our states and the District of Columbia, we are connected in an even stronger way through the water of life that flows from our Father himself. May it be so in our Potomac Division, and may God show us a glimpse of what He has for us, as we gather on October 17 to celebrate and to be filled with renewed strength and hope for the ministry of The Salvation Army in our local communities.

Thanks to those who joined us online and in person, including our Territorial Leaders, Commissioners Willis and Barbara Howell, as well as Colonels Ralph and Susan Bukiewicz . . .  Joe the Turk!
