Lydia’s Loft




Clothing for our community


Lydia’s Loft is operated by volunteers under the

auspices of First Baptist Church of Huntersville and

The Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson, NC.


The name Lydia'sLoft was inspired by the following

scripture passage:

Acts 16:13 On the Sabbath we went outside the city

gate to the river, where we expected to find a place of

prayer.  We sat down and began to speak to the

women who had gathered there.  14 One of those

listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named

Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth.  She was a worshiper

of God.  The Lord opened her heart to respond to

Paul's message.
