Pender ReGift Thrift Store is an outreach ministry of Pender United Methodist Church.

Our nonprofit mission is the distribution of material goods to the poor, locally, nationally, and internationally. We are the only church around with a 5,000 sq ft warehouse and a loading dock. Working with for-profit, nonprofit, and government partners, we maximize our nonprofit potential. Our thrift store supports our nonprofit mission. We are family friendly.

Being thrifty, seeking value, or frugality, are all generally given a bad rap, but in this tough economic climate, you can defend your right to be smart.

 Our thrift store, offers a wide variety of unique items. Our furniture includes beds, couches, sofa beds, office chairs, tables, desks, cabinets, filing cabinets, baby furniture, and lawn furniture. All upholstered items have been sanitized in accordance with government regulations. Our gently-used clothing has been carefully sorted and sized. We have a wide variety of accessories including hats, shoes, purses, belts, and scarves. Our electronics department has a wide variety of computer equipment, including keyboards, monitors, printers, microwaves, and other small appliances.

We carry big appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves, washers, and dryers. We have toys, sports equipment, linens, and lawn tools. Our books and media include DVDs, CDs, audio books, fiction, nonfiction, classics, a wide variety of children’s chapter books and early readers. We specialize in books for teachers and students. Our nonfiction books are organized including cookbooks, spiritual books, personal finance books, history and biography. Bibles are always free.

Why Was Jesus baptized?

An excerpt from Adam Hamilton’s new book, The Way:

One day, as John was baptizing in the Jordan, he looked up to see a familiar face. He smiled as Jesus approached, and the two men embraced. These men had known one another their entire lives. They had played together as boys and dreamed together as young men. John was six months older, but he always knew it was his younger cousin who would play the greater role in God’s plans. The two had shared long walks and conversations both in Jerusalem and in the monastery by the Salt Sea. They had stayed up long into the night discussing the Scriptures and the kingdom of God. John’s preaching and baptism at the Jordan would officially set in motion a chain of events that would lead to John’s own death in a matter of months, and to Jesus’ crucifixion just three years later.
