Rochester United Methodist Church operates a small part-time Thrift Shop on church property located at 18214 Corvallis St., Rochester. Volunteers and Donors work to provide affordable household goods for sale in our effort to serve and enrich our church’s relationship with our community and surrounding area.

  • Also, we must limit the number of shoppers inside at one time
  • We accept cash only
