Lifeway Christian Bookstore in Wheaton is featuring JUST of DuPage as its ministry of the month! Pastor Mary Ann and Lifeway store manager Mark have formed a partnership to bring bibles to inmates at the DuPage County Jail.
The bookstore is located in the Town Square shopping center in Danada in south Wheaton. Pictured above are some of Lifeway’s enthusiastic staff.
As customers make their purchases, they are asked if they would like to contribute $5 to buy a bible for an inmate of DuPage County Jail. The customer then picks his/her color of choice. Brochures about JUST’s ministry are placed in each customer’s bag.
After only a few days, the store has already collected almost 100 bibles to give to JUST of DuPage. Stop by the store in the next couple of weeks to purchase a bible and to say thank-you to this great group of people!
And the winner is … JUST of DuPage!
