Wisdom Well Bookstore

Open Sunday Mornings, 9:30 am – 11 am.

The WISDOM WELL Bookstore offers great selection of current books that our Small Groups are using, books recommended by our pastors, Bibles, teen and children’s selections.  Not only does the WISDOM WELL carry books, but there is an array of Fair Trade items from around the world, as well as coffees, greeting cards, knitted items and pottery. Check it out!

The GBPC bookstore does not sell items for profit, but rounds up the price of some items for ease and in order to donate funds annually to a mission project.  Each year, Volunteers Tammy Andre & Michelle Knapp, choose a project that the church is involved with, to donate these proceeds.  They also maintain “Hamlet” the piggy bank, on the sales counter in the bookstore.  Patrons may choose, and often do, to donate additional funds to the chosen mission.  So, when you take advantage of our church bookstore you are rewarded with a convenient place to shop for Nicaraguan coffee, Bibles, study books and more, and you are helping support one of the many missions of GBPC!
