New name for the Free Store
We are excited to announce the re-opening of the Free Store with a new name: Gleaner’s Closet . Open on Saturdays (except on long weekends) from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM to everyone who needs children’s items.
The idea of naming our ministry Gleaner’s Closet comes from the book of Ruth in the Bible where a lady named Ruth moves to a foreign land for survival. By God’s provision, Ruth is allowed to glean and pick up grain for free.
As God graciously loved and provided for Ruth, we as a church want to exemplify God’s love by sharing resources (children’s clothing and items) with our community. Gleaner’s closet is more than a place for children’s items but a place where you can connect, build relationships, and have the freedom to talk about God, life, and pray together.
Support Gleaners Closet:
Donate clean, gently used items for children. Donations can be dropped off at the west entrance of the Greenhouse behind New Life Community Church. Do not donate household items, outdated car seats, TVs, furniture, etc. Whenever possible please drop off donations during store hours.
There are 3 ways to volunteer in this ministry:
1) Volunteers needed to sort and organize donated items on Wednesdays
2) Volunteers needed to assist and interact with clients on Saturdays
3) Volunteers are needed in the Prayer Tent. To pray for and with clients who want prayer.
