When the church moved from Broadway to our present campus in 1960, the Women’s Fellowship began the “Thrift Corner”, a pop-up flea market which served the church community. This soon became “The Thrift Shop” offering low cost goods to the community for more than 60 years. Half of the proceeds are donated to local nonprofit organizations that serve our community.
In 2019, our nonprofit recipients included:
- The Teen Parent Program at Sonoma High for counseling and support
- The Teen Center on Hwy 12 which provides an apprenticeship program that gives teens employable skills
- Redwood Empire Food Bank
- Brown Baggers who serve food to low income and homeless individuals.
- Old Adobe School, providing financial assistance for needy families.
- SOS/The Haven who serve the homeless community
We have also supported the church by funding various projects including the floor in Burlingame Hall and the sound system in the Sanctuary, as well as scholarships to Camp Caz and Seeds of Learning.
