Walkersville Thrift Shop

Walkersville Churches each take a turn serving at the Glade Valley Community Services Thrift shop located in the basement of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Parish Hall, 19 West Pennsylvania Avenue, Walkersville, MD on Saturdays.

St Timothy’s is serving every Saturday from 10am-2pm during the months of September and November.  You would be helping customers, sorting & hanging donations.  Sign up for 2 hour shifts. Great service to do as a family. I highly encourage a parent to serve alongside their teen.
