Do you love to shop? Are you always looking for bargains? Do you get excited when you are able to purchase an item way below cost? If these are your feelings about shopping and bargains, you are invited to Twice Blest Thrift Store at 132 Bluebonnet (F.M. 775), next door to La Vernia United Methodist Church.
As you enter, you will be greeted by ladies from LVUMC and your shopping experience will be off to an exciting event. You will find household items, linens, dishes, small appliances and pots and pans. Also there will be clothing, purses, shoes, knick-knacks, baby items, videos, toys, books and lots more. There is something just right for you that will bring excitement to your bargain shopping.
The proceeds from your purchase will be used to support the ministries of the church and volunteer organizations and ministries in our community. Some of these ministries are The Guadalupe Family Violence Center, Sutherland Springs Food Pantry, Hospital Hospitality Bags, Senior Center in Seguin, La Vernia EMS and Volunteer Fire Department, Wilson County Spay/Neuter Group, The LVUMC Flower Garden Ministry, Men in Arms Ministry, LV Angels, and several other organizations in the community serving others.
Perhaps you have many items in your home that you would like to clean out, but having a garage sale is time-consuming and tiring. Instead of having a garage sale, just box everything up and take them to the thrift ministry. This will enable the volunteers to minister to the community and you will add to these ministries.
The store is open Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. You are in for an exciting experience, whether you give materials and items to the store or whether you have a great time shopping and purchasing items.
You can be part of this ministry in one of three ways: You can shop and get bargains, bargains, bargains! Or you can give your items and because of your gift, additional funds will be raised for the ministries. Or you can volunteer some time at the thrift store; you will find a wonderful group of ladies and you will be enriched by spending time with them. Or, you can do all three: shop, give and volunteer.
This is a ministry of La Vernia United Methodist Church and another important ministry are our services on Sunday morning when we bring our needs, our praises, and our prayers to Him. You are gracefully invited to attend the services. There is a traditional service in the sanctuary at 8:30 a.m. each Sunday morning, followed by Sunday School for all ages and then there is a contemporary service at 11 a.m. See you there!
