Meet one of our “gap” ministries- Immanuel’s Children’s Clothing Closet

The mission of Love In the Name of Christ is to mobilize the local church to transform lives and communities in the Name of Christ. We are grateful for the many churches that partner in ministry with Love INC- one of these is Immanuel Lutheran Church.

Immanuel’s Children’s Clothing Closet is a “gap” ministry- a joint ministry of Love INC and Immanuel Lutheran Church. A “gap” ministry is a ministry that is developed to help meet the needs of our community.  There are many families in need of assistance, and helping to provide free children’s clothing is one way that we can be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community! Clothing items are free and shoppers are encouraged to visit as often as needed. The clothing closet is open every Friday from 10am-12pm, and there is a limit of 12 items per shopper, per visit.

Immanuel’s Children’s Clothing Closet is located in the basement of Immanuel Lutheran Church, 2416 Jefferson Park Avenue, Charlottesville. For more information please contact their church office at (434) 295-4038.

We are so grateful for the many hands who help to sort through donations and organize the clothing for our neighbors in need! Here are some pictures of their volunteers as they prepare to serve our neighbors…
