Sterling UMC Annual Yard Sale
For many years now Sterling UMC has held an Annual Yard Sale to support our worldwide missions teams and our local missions efforts such as Backpack Buddies and GRACE Ministries’ monthly food and clothing distributions.
Over the years the “yard” has gotten much larger as the annual sale has taken on Event status with shoppers coming from far and wide – and many of the same faces return every year to search for that great bargain.
The sale is held annually in June; typically on the third or fourth Saturday of the month. This year’s sale will be Saturday, June 22 from 7am to 2pm.
Volunteers begin working immediately after Memorial Day and we easily exceed a thousand man-hours of preparation, the sale weekend, and clean up. However, the time spent working is worth it as proceeds go to support teams of workers that in past years have included mission work in Jamaica, Costa Rica, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, and right here in Sterling.
The sale is entirely supported by donations of all types. If you need it, you can usually find it here! In the past, items have included clothing, antiques, collectibles, framed items, housewares, electronics, book and music, games, jewelry, sporting goods, tools and garden items, furniture, and even appliances! The Yard Sale will go on whether it is rain or shine with parking available in the rear of the church.
For all of your updated information check out this page and the Facebook event as the sale gets closer.
Jacob Printz will be coordinating the Yard Sale this year and if you have any questions or have items to donate, you may reach him by contacting the Church Office at (703) 430-6455 or by email at
