Ruth's Place is our church's neighborhood thrift store, where we offer good quality, affordable clothing and housewares. ​Our vision for Ruth's Place is to create a place of rest and refuge. We value the connection we make with our neighbors, and hope they feel the same every time they walk into our store.

We offer a number of low-cost, quality items at Ruth's Place, including:

  • clothing for all ages and sizes

  • coats and jackets

  • footwear

  • accessories (ties, belts, handbags, jewelry, etc.)

  • dishes, glassware, and utensils

  • small appliances (coffee pots, tea kettles, etc.)

  • small home goods (lamps, mirrors, clocks, etc.)

  • towels and linens

  • wall art

  • books, board games, and puzzles

  • DVDs and CDs

  • craft supplies

Ruth's Place is entirely run by volunteers; therefore, all proceeds are used for the benefit of the church and local community. In addition, Ruth's Place donates $100 each month to a local charity to continue supporting our neighbors.

If you would like to provide donations to Ruth's Place, please drop off your items to the thrift store during open hours.

Clothing and home goods are accepted in fair to good condition. We do NOT accept furniture, computers, printers, microwaves, large appliances, or VHS tapes.

Please do not leave donations at our little pantry, in front of the church, or at the thrift store during non-open hours. Items can get ruined with the weather when it sits out until volunteers can collect the donations.
