PLEASE NOTE: As of March 18, 2020:
An Update from Furniture Ministry
Due to a concern for the safety of our volunteers and clients, all Furniture Ministry operations are suspended until further notice. This includes furniture delivery, donation pickup and accepting new referrals. Once we have a date for safely resuming operations, we will notify our congregation and our volunteers and post the information on the church website and Facebook page.
Our mission is to provide good, useful furnishings to those in need, treating each client graciously, with Christian hospitality. Our service area is Alamance County.
SERVE BY BECOMING A VOLUNTEER
The Furniture Ministry Program collects slightly-used furniture and beds to deliver to families who have experienced homelessness, domestic abuse, fire or limited income. These are items that we take for granted each day. This ministry consists of a group of volunteers who work throughout the month to pick up donated furniture and household items in order to deliver the second Saturday of each month. Additional volunteers assist on Saturday morning deliveries from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 noon. All are welcome to attend and assist in a delivery workday.
Would you like to volunteer? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
