Congratulations to the Business of the Week!

 

We would like to congratulate Made New Ministries -- the Business of the Week.

 
"Our mission is simple! We want to share the Hope and Love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are on a mission to love God, love others, and make Disciples!"

Made New Church was founded in October of 2014. Pastor Darrell and Sara Thornton was called by God to plant a church and start a mission in Mullens, WV. Made New Church started meeting in a small classroom at a local closed down elementary school, and from there the church kept expanding. Made New Church opened a Thrift Store, Soup Kitchen, and Food Pantry in downtown Mullens reaching out to whoever needed help. They outgrew that location and NOW, Made New Ministries is in a 10,000-square foot facility. At this new facility Made New Church still operates the Thrift Store, Soup Kitchen, and Food Pantry. In addition to these ministries Made New Church also operates The Way Youth Center where they average more than 100 teens per weekend, and of course Made New Church has church services weekly at this same location.
