In 2020, we started collecting items to host a garage sale fundraiser, then COVID hit. We waited patiently as our June date arrived and restrictions lifted just enough to allow the garage sale to open. The first day was a great success, but the second and third days were rained out. We quickly moved everything inside to our unfinished storage area and tried to make it look presentable. People came looking through our space to find hidden treasures. We started to wonder if a resale shoppe would be a good next step. God shined a light on this opportunity for our ministry and Leslie Kroeze, staff and volunteers hit the ground running to research what it would take to run a high-end, upscale resale shoppe. Here we are, a year later renovations complete and re-stocking the shelves again.
We call it Renewed & Restored: Resale at the Well. This extension of our ministry opened in MAY of 2021 and is ran by volunteers who have a heart for the mission of Well of GRACE Ministries. Having just kicked off our third business year, we are steadily growing. This has given us the ability to extend our volunteer base, add another staff member, support new aspects of our ministry, and hire out many, many projects to improve our space to continue doing ministry well. We are thankful to God for His steadfast blessing and provision of our ministry!
100% of the dollars brought in by Renewed & Restored support the mission and ministry of Well of GRACE and allow for expansion of our services throughout southwest Michigan. If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions regarding the resale shop, please contact email@example.com.
We are OPEN!
