Started in 1983, Belfry Bargains is the Outreach Thrift Shop ministry at the Church of the Messiah.
Our mission, set in Christian fellowship, is to offer the wider community pre-owned items at affordable prices and to see that all proceeds go to outreach projects. Customers come from near and far, and virtually all walks of life. An atmosphere of Christian fellowship and caring is a precious part of the Belfry Bargains experience for workers and shoppers alike.
The shop is a many hands and hearts ministry. Sharing the work is the only way it can exist. Merchandise comes in as donations and the sorting, cleaning, tagging, displaying, advertising, selling and “’in-kind” distributions are handled by a marvelous group of about 50 volunteers. Administrative tasks are handled by a Management Team of seven area coordinators, while Daily Captains and Desk Persons take responsibility for the hours of operation on their assigned day.
Every effort is made to put useful items in the right hands. Weekly mission collections and cooperation with other thrift shops insure that things donated are not wasted. In addition, varied and growing connections with local endeavors have fostered meaningful “in-kind” donations.
All money earned is disbursed to charitable causes on a monthly basis by Messiah’s Outreach Committee.
