Hey everyone. It’s Tracy DeGraaf here at Evilena’s Red Dresser…your favorite consignment store. Did you know we offer more than just awesome items at great prices? Yep! Evilena’s is more that just a consignment store. I like to say “We’re a ‘for-profit-store’ with a ‘not-for-profit’ mission.”
Owner, Jan Sabey has a bigger vision for Evilena’s. She wants to help people with buying and selling AND encourage them spiritually.
“My church gives away free Bibles, and I was inspired to do the same in my store,” Sabey said.
Evilena’s gives away The Journey Bible, Revealing God and How You Fit into His Plan. It is available to anyone completely free. It’s the New International Version with helpful information for people who have never read the Bible. The Journey Bible includes a 30-day reading plan and study notes. While the Bible is free, the store accepts donations to support the program. Read about how Susan’s life was changed because of a free Bible.
“I want to do more than just have a business,” Sabey said. “I want to share what’s most important to me, my faith.”
Sabey also has a prayer ministry. Anyone with prayer needs can write down concerns and drop them in a prayer box. Evilena’s customers can also use the “Leave a Prayer/Take a Prayer” board. This allows the community to lift up each other’s burdens.
In addition, Evilena’s periodically offers classes on topics such as Bible reading and keeping a prayer journal. Evilena’s donates to many Christian organizations including ministries both locally and around the world. Evilena’s Red Dresser is an annual sponsor of The National Day of Prayer.
Come to Evilena’s to experience it for yourself!
