The ‘store’ is operated by a corp of church volunteers. In the Upper Ohio Valley Presbytery, GRACE Presbyterian Church is a Matthew 25 congregation that operates over 30 various ministries beyond its walls. Their church, three years ago, planted a new church in rural Pakistan. It has grown from 11 members to 950 in that short period of time. One of the ministries is to provide new Bibles to all baptized members. Today that has exceeded 900 people. Some of their local mission programs range from an emergency warming center in the winter to a cooling center in the summer. The ministry Totes & Teddies provides bags of clothing and toys for children who are displaced from their homes by the police and Family Services. Bonnets for Babies provides knitted hats for newborn babies in our region. Knitted Knockers is a ministry that provides soft, comfortable knitted prosthetics for breast cancer survivors who experienced a mastectomy. Their Free Legal Clinic is a partnership with the Belmont County Bar Association.
