The FreeStore is exactly what it sounds like. It is a store that has clothes, furniture, household items, shoes, toys and books, and it is all free. While serving or shopping at the FreeStore you experience their mission first hand: We believe that in God’s world there is enough for all people, and extend that abundance by freely giving clothing and household goods to all who come through the FreeStore doors. Through this tangible grace, we affirm the self-worth of every person by creating opportunities for all people to live in community with one another.
The FreeStore is back and in the month of May we are excited to restart our support of this ministry at its new home, Memorial UMC, through our giving and serving. The FreeStore is more than a place to share clothing and household goods. It’s a place where people from all walks of life have an opportunity to build relationships. The foundations of this intentionally cross-cultural, multi-racial community lie in the affirmation of God’s love for all people.
You are invited to support this ministry by donating funds to help with its operation, by donating gently used or new clothing and household items, or by serving anytime it’s open. Members of FUMC are invited to serve together each third Saturday beginning this month. Hope to see you there on Saturday, May 20! Serving opportunities include assisting shoppers; bagging items; providing hospitality; sorting organizing, and shelving donated items; and sharing stories over a cup of coffee. There is something for everyone—children, youth, individuals, and families.
The FreeStore is open for shopping Wednesdays 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., Saturdays 9:00 a.m.-11:00 AM. Donations are received Mondays and Wednesdays 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. Monetary donations, marked “FreeStore” may be left at the communion rail or placed in the offering plate on any Sunday in May. You may also send them to or bring them by the church office.
