Rogersville Laundry Ministry
RLM began August 11, 2016 with the First Christian Church providing services one time per month only, at one location, & only for 2 hours. As word grew, we were serving more, but not able to provide for the growing need. As of March 2018, other churches joined & we are now able to provide service weekly at both laundromat locations in Rogersville.
Each weekly session costs between $100 - S250 at each location, depending on the number of participants.
Mission: To provide assistance with a basic need that people in our community have- clean clothes!
What We Do
We provide free laundry services for those in need.
We give detergent and quarters for anyone who needs them to come wash their clothes 1 night per week at 2 locations.
We do not ask for verification of need. We have a place on the sign in sheet for prayer requests, should they have any so we can pray for those that we serve.
The Lord provides funds for us from community/business donations of money & product, and church donations. Benefits of this ministry are many – improved self-esteem for the consumers and their children, being exposed to Christ-like behavior with nothing demanded in return, prayer for their needs, building good relationships in the community. Benefits for volunteers – just stop by any Thursday evening & you will understand!
It has been great to see different churches work together for a common goal. They all see this need and work together to meet it every week. It's great to see God's church at work.
