- Union UMC hosts a clothing ministry called Christ's Closet. Here our guests receive clothing for both grownups and kids, and sometimes other household items like furniture, books, toys, and appliances (when we have them).
- The new Christ's Closet warehouse is finished and we have begun hosting weekly (see the red barn, same location behind the white house; 6025 New Town Rd, Waxhaw NC). We host open giveaways every Thursday from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.
- It's all FREE, given away because God loves you and so do we! If you come to one of the Thursday Giveaways PLEASE WEAR A FACEMASK and maintain 6 ft distancing.
- Donation boxes are available for drop-off across the street from the church. They are giant red boxes (picture of them is on the left in the slideshow), you can't miss them. Please organize and fold any clothing donations by gender and size (it saves us a ton of work). Garbage bags filled with piles of clothes makes our volunteers sad. Also make sure any donations are clean and not broken as they will be trashed (if you wouldn't gift your donation to a family member for said reason, you are better off recycling or disposing of them).
- If you would like more information please email ChristClosetUnion@gmail.com, or go to the CC Facebook Page!
Have you been looking for an opportunity to serve in ministry but time constraints and other commitments stand in the way? Christ’s Closet has the answer for you. The Christ’s Closet house is now opening on Sunday morning immediately following Sunday school at 11:00 a.m. for those who attend early service to fold and sort clothes. Individuals who attend the late service are welcome to come when they finish worship. God has increasingly blessed the ministry with clothing, toys and household goods, and in doing so has created a marvelous opportunity to serve for anyone who would like to be the hands and feet of Christ. You can work as time permits. Christ’s Closet is truly a non-judgment zone. Your help will always be greatly appreciated.
To keep it simple; the house will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
