Adam Hamilton teaches that if we can get people involved in mission, we can teach them about Jesus Christ and then they will become part of the church. The Holy Spirit is alive, working and leading the people of the Amelia Thrift Store on a mission to reach out to the community. This community mission outreach was started after identifying several basic needs of our community. The two greatest needs were funds to help support the two county food banks and agencies that helped people with their financial needs. The Holy Spirit led the opening of a thrift store, selling only donated items, all work from unpaid servants, and giving all proceeds back to the community. The store has celebrated over seven years of success that can only be described as a miracle from God. An expansion of this community outreach includes Journey Meals Food Program, delivering over 9000 meals per school year to needy children for the weekend.
The Amelia Thrift Store has been credited with changing the entire community in ways where people know that they are reaching out to each other by donating, serving or buying in the store.
We are finding many people coming into the store seeking a direction or guidance in life. We have several avenues where we can tell our stories about our faith in Christ. We are now providing a place where more mission work can be done, and a place where those who have been turned off, turned away, or never found a “church” can now come and worship a living God.
