To our valued customers, donors and volunteers,
Boomerangs Resale Store is celebrating 10 years of being in the Northside Madison community. Ten amazing and blessed years. We couldn’t have done it without you:
Our generous donors have continued to grace our store with quality items that make our store worth shopping!
Our loyal customers consistently choose to shop with us, bring their friends and are often donors themselves!
Our faithful volunteers, hundreds over the years, have worked thousands of hours to make it all possible.
For all of this, we offer a humble and sincere thank you!!
This important milestone has reminded us of how it all began and just like any good story, this one includes tragedy, hope and a miracle. I’ll keep it quick...
Boomerangs was started when the Leadership Team and Stewardship Board from Door Creek Church felt compelled to share Christ’s compassion by meeting the needs of those on Madison’s north side. Opening a resale store would do that in two big ways: first, by providing quality goods at an affordable price and second, by sharing proceeds with other faith-based, non-profit groups already in the community. Some of those proceeds would also be set aside in the hopes of one day opening a ministry center on the Northside. After much prayer and countless hours of volunteer work, Boomerangs opened its doors for the first time on September 9th, 2008.
After a devastating fire in 2011, God gave us “beauty from the ashes” (Isaiah 61:3) and Boomerangs grew not only in square footage, but in reputation. A service truck was gifted to us, enabling us to offer delivery services and easily collect furniture donations from all corners of Dane County. By this time Boomerangs was growing into much more than just a resale store, it was becoming a place where needs were being met; physically for those in financial need, spiritually through prayer and bible studies and emotionally through genuine friendships.
Fast forward to today and Boomerangs continues to thrive. And the hoped-for ministry center became a full service church and is infinitely more than we could ask or imagine! Just a few doors down from Boomerangs, Door Creek Church Northside Madison Campus will be having its Grand Opening day on September 9th, 2018. The miracle? It was discovered after the planning was complete that this is exactly 10 years after Boomerangs first opened its doors!
Only God could be the author of this story! To find out more about how God writes all of our stories, please join us at “Northside Madison” for worship on Sundays at 10:30 am.
May God continue His work here for another 10 years and more!
With much love,
Boomerangs Resale Store and Door Creek Church
