Moms on Mission
Lil’ Lambs Closet is a committee of 30 moms who are active members of Centenary Church.
The first sale was in 1993 and was inspired by a similar sale in Georgia. So began the creation of our own children’s consignment sale. Each committee member must be a member of Centenary. Every committee member places the highest value on the privilege we have of being a mother.
Each sale we prayerfully consider how we may best assist women and children with the resources that we receive from these sales. The Lil’ Lambs Closet is open each Spring and Fall so that parents may shop for seasonal items. Lil’ Lambs Closet now contributes more than $70,000 each year to local and global childrens’ causes and ministries.
Since 1993 we’ve given
in donations to women and children’s ministry.
How we do it
Sellers who participate in consigning their items will receive the majority of the item sale price and can re-invest in their children’s seasonal clothing or keep the additional income (70%).
The Lil’ Lambs Closet committee takes the portion of the sales price they retain from the sale to contribute to charities/ministries related to young mothers and children (30%).

The Gift of Becoming a Mother.
Each committee member of Lil’ Lambs is dedicated to the gift and preservation of becoming a mother. Within our church family, we offer assistance through a Baby Fund to those parents who seek infertility treatment as well as choose to grow their families through adoption.
