We're not just another web store, or book store, or gift store. It's our desire to really help you with your journey of faith. So, you won't find this site filled with our entire stock. That's just not who we are. A long time ago we realized we like to take care of people personally, not through an impersonal online store. It's about getting to know each other so we can participate in building the community God intends for His family. Serving you since 1998
