Be God's love--ring a bell for an hour or two

Did you ever consider ringing the bell for the Salvation Army?  Because of the close association of the WOFCC with the Salvation Army, we coordinate bell ringers for the Elk City Walmart.



As it turns out, we need volunteers, some for as early as tomorrow.  If you could man a bell for an hour or two, please call 580 225-5500 and ask for Tim.  This is an easy way to be a part of God’s love here in western Oklahoma.

Wow! Look what's happening at Christi's Bazaar!

Black Friday has come and gone.  The same can be said for Cyber Monday, but the special sales at Christi’s Bazaar just keep on coming.

Why should I shop at Christi’s?

Despite the upscale sounding name, this is a thrift store.  That’s right; you should expect big savings on all items.  More than that, the proceeds of the store go to support the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center.

Here are half a dozen specials on the near horizon.

Christi’s Bazaar Special Sales starting next week.

1.      Tuesday and Saturday:  ½ price on everything in the store.
2.       Wednesday:  Senior citizen day--20% off storewide
3.       Thursday:  Secret Sale—you must go into store to see or check Facebook.
4.      Friday:  All household and knick-knacks--20% off. 
5.      Wednesday, December 9th:  Christmas d├ęcor--70% off. 
6.      Bring your church bulletin in for a 10% discount any day.

Here is a special that wraps up this week:  This Friday, everyone who makes a purchase gets a free Christmas ornament.

There are great prices all of the time, plus sales, but the greatest incentive is that the proceeds go to help the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center.  That translates into helping your neighbors who are in need.


There aren’t too many places where you can indulge your urge to shop and help your neighbors at the same time.  Come and bring your shopping appetite and a generous heart to Christi’s Bazaar, 112 S. Main Street in Elk City, Oklahoma.

Please support Christi's--get a bargain and help people in need

To all of the saints living in Western Oklahoma,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Many of your congregations already know of the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center and what we do as God’s love in action in four counties in western Oklahoma.  Some, however, may not realize that we also operate a thrift store.

Christi’s  Bazaar is located at 110 S. Main Street, Elk City, Oklahoma and proceeds from the store support the Family Care Center.  We ask your help in letting your congregations know about us.  We need not only to generate revenue to support the center but need volunteers and donations as well.  Perhaps there are some within your families of faith that are led to volunteer.  They may stop in Christi’s and ask for a volunteer application Tuesday through Saturday.

To help promote traffic to Christi’s among the faithful in western Oklahoma, please announce that anyone that brings their church bulletin into the store will receive an extra 10% off any purchase through January 2016.

If you already have an allegiance to an area thrift store, we do not want to disrupt that in any way, but if anyone has not considered shopping at or donating to a thrift store to support local ministries, please consider Christi’s in the coming weeks.  Christi’s also has a Facebook page where we announce sales and specials.  Please help us be God’s love in western Oklahoma.


Be blessed and be a blessing!
