“Moreover, your very giving proves the reality of your faith, and that means that others thank God that you practice the Gospel that you profess to believe in, as well as for the actual gifts you make to them and to others. ”
(2 Cor 9:13, J.B.Phillips)

The Hope Closet provides clothing to women sized 18 and up free of charge. All clients are referred to us through Christian Services. http://www.christianservicesloveinc.org. The closet is open to women by appointment twice a month on the first and third Wednesday mornings. Clients enter via the West Door and use the stair or elevator to reach the Fellowship Hall which is located on the Lower Level. They are welcomed and assisted by a dedicated group of Eastminster women who transform the room into a retail store so clients may shop for coats, sweaters, dresses, suits, pants, shoes, undergarments, and more.
Donations of clean, quality used clothing in excellent condition are welcome Monday through Thursday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Please stop in the Church Office for assistance. Financial contributions are also accepted to purchase items for the Closet.
