STM Sale

STM Update

There will be no additional STM drop-offs in 2020 due to social distancing and cross-contamination issues. That means no formal drop-off dates, and no informal pick-ups or drop-offs.  We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Decisions on what will be done with items currently being held in the barn will be made at a later date.




The Short Term Missions Sale is an annual event at Glenwood Community Church. It is a large yard/barn sale and all proceeds are used to give Glenwood attendees (both youth and adults) experience on the mission field in a short-term capacity. Individuals and teams serve both here in the United States and around the globe. Items sold at the sale are donations from the community, usually from the Glenwood congregation. The sale is open to the public. 

As the sale approaches each year, we need help from everyone. Below are a few of the ways you can support the sale:

  • Drop-off your good quality "stuff"
  • Help unload and sort items at the Saturday drop-off's (No need to sign-up if you want to help with drop-off - just show up!)
  • Set-up the week before the sale 
  • Help feed the workers 
  • Volunteer at the sale 
  • Clean up after the sale 

We also appreciate your prayers! Below are some specific ways you can pray for sale:

  • That God's Kingdom would be advanced
  • For the safety of the workers and the shoppers
  • For sufficient volunteers for every area
  • That would donate their "stuff" and God would bring buyers
  • That there would be a good connection with the community 
  • That volunteers would build relationships with each other

Use the link below to sign up to help - we look forward to working with you!

See the STM Sale Drop-Offs page for guidelines for donations.
