250 West Rand Road, Arlington Heights – 847.818.1630
Monday–Friday 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

We are a volunteer run resale store seeking to raise funds for compassion ministry and Christian education in the Chicago area. We collect donations during store hours including furniture, clothing, household goods, toys, books, music, sporting goods and some electronics. We also sell new mattresses at 40-50% below big box store prices.

Volunteers from The Orchard serve in a variety of ways. Based on donations and volunteer hours, The Orchard is given grants to be used for raising up next generation pastors, church planters, missionaries and lay-leaders through The Orchard Network. To volunteer, contact Karen Shudak.

Normally meet the last Sunday of the month, 6–8 p.m., Arlington Heights
Many of our Christian brothers and sisters in other parts of the world are suffering because they want to follow Christ. Join us to pray for those who are oppressed around the world, especially those who are persecuted for their faith. We write letters to people imprisoned for their faith and to political leaders, interceding on behalf of particular individuals and encouraging governmental leaders to address and uphold human rights within their countries’ borders. For more information and for this month’s schedule, contact Juliet Skuldt, 847.749.2587, or Stephanie Bucataru, 847.347.4654.
