Angel Threads at outREACh Tuesdays

Our Angel Threads Boutique Ministry serves individuals by providing “like-new” clothing during our OutREACH Tuesday Events. There are opportunities to get involved through both the Sorts and the Boutique.

Angel threads sorts 

Angel Threads Sorts are the first and third Sunday of every month from 12:30pm – 3:00pm outside the Middle School Room. 

Sorts allow our Boutique to run smoothly and for people to shop for exactly what they need. We only provide the best for our boutique guests! Additional clothing is also sorted to head to one of the many other ministries or locations that we help to support.


Angel Threads Boutique

The Angel Threads Boutique is every Tuesday morning of the month from 8-11am.

OutREACH guests call for appointments and our team sets up a pop-up shop tailored to the specific needs of their family.  Prayer and encouragement are big parts of this ministry. 

Foster Ministry

Our Foster Ministry seeks to call the body of Christ to action in the foster care crisis. “Everyone Can Do Something!”

There are different levels of involvement:

  • Champions: meet the needs of  families who are fostering.
  • Friends:  come alongside those who are fostering by helping meet immediate needs such as babysitting, providing meals, and praying.  
  • Mentors:  speak into the lives of youth transitioning out of the foster system.  One-on-one and group setting mentoring available.
  • Families: become a foster family to a child in need of a home. We can help connect you and get you started.
