Salvation Army receives new pastors

Salvation Army majors June and Scott Nicloy stand together after a meet-and-greet in the Harbor Light Church fellowship hall, Sunday.

A new pair of pastors will be "doing the most good" at the local corps of the Salvation Army. Majors Scott Nicloy and June Nicloy arrived in Wrangell at the end of June.

"We were excited about being able to come to Wrangell," June said, adding that they were both appreciative of the warm welcome they have so far received from the community.

"We would like to stay a long time," said Scott. While the postings are open-ended, officers can be moved around depending on the organization's needs.

This will be their fifth appointment in southeast Alaska. The couple most recently served as administrators for the Salvation Army's Clitheroe Center in Anchorage.

June Nicloy has served in the state for 17 of her 28 years as a Salvation Army officer. "I consider myself an Alaskan," she said.

The congregation of Harbor Light Church welcomed the couple Sunday evening with a potluck, psalms, and a bit of fellowship for the new ministers.

A musical couple in addition to being ministers, the Nicloys performed a selection from "Hosea," a musical based on the Biblical book of the same name. Adept at a variety of instruments, Scott even pulled out his accordion to accompany a few psalms.

"Anywhere we go, we have that music," June joked.

As the Nicloys settle in, they are looking for community input as to what direction their ministry should focus.

"We're forming a community advisory board," Scott said, of at least nine people. "I'm aiming for twelve." Those interested in participating can call the Nicloys at 874-3753 for more information.
