Thrift Shoppe

The Thrift Shoppe at First Baptist Church, 100 Maple Street, Glens Falls, NY is open Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and Friday 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Clothing (women, men and youth and baby items), home goods, and used books are available at or below bargain-basement prices. The Thrift Shoppe is located in the basement, accessible from the back door by the side driveway.

We are community supported by the generosity of clothing and small household items.  Seventy percent (70%) of the money after expenses is given to charity.  This year 35 charities throughout the Tri-County area and beyond have received donations. Each month we give to an elementary school or a backpack program by issuing clothing vouchers. These vouchers are given to the school nurse or social worker and then given to parents to shop for the children.

The Adirondack Association of American Baptist Churches unanimously recommended ordination for Pastor Linda on April 30. The process continues, but Pastor Linda left nary a dry eye in her statement of faith in which she chronicled her faith journey through divorce, widowhood, her call to ministry, her baptism in water and the Holy Spirit at the River Jordan, her experience at Andover-Newton Theological Seminary, and her call to pastor the sister churches of First Baptist Church of Glens Falls, New York and Village Baptist Church in Fort Edward. Congratulations, Pastor Linda! You do inspire us.
