Common Garments Ministry began serving in May 15th, 1999. Our primary purpose to share the good news of Jesus Christ through providing food, clothing, furniture and household items to locally to anyone in need. We also ship containers of clothing to countries all over the world. All of these items are given freely to those in need – there are absolutely no fees or costs to our customers. Although meeting physical needs is important, at Common Garments we strive to meet emotional and spiritual needs by providing an environment with continual encouragement and a listening ear. When we feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked and visit the prisoners – we are doing these things as unto the Lord.
Isaiah 61:1-3“The Lord has chosen us to tell of His salvation and good news to the needy, heal the brokenhearted, comfort those that mourn, open prison doors, give them beauty for ashes, and the “garment” of praise in exchange for the spirit of heaviness. Then these may be called the righteous.”
Along with their free store they also offer a Christ Centered, zero cost recovery home to struggling woman, called Elizabeth’s House. It’s a work based program built around the teaching of Gods word. It’s purpose is to see residents have their desires for sin removed through a relationship with Jesus, be discipled and to live according to Biblical principles.
Luke 1:36-37“What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she’s already in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.”
