Command Religious Program

Open to all military and family members, the Command Religious Program endeavors to help each person meet his or her need for spiritual guidance and support. The weekly schedule includes religious services, scripture studies, counseling and a variety of classes for personal growth. Opportunities are also available for recreation, retreats, fellowship and community service. If you are looking for a place to make new friends, grow in your faith and find encouragement for the challenges you face daily, this is the place to start. If you are looking for a particular faith group that doesn’t currently meet here, or simply desire to make contact with a local congregation, the chaplains will also assist you in fulfilling that need as well. Existing religious services are listed.
