Be sure to check out the Pastor's Recommendations below.

Ordering online? For any books to be delivered to your church, choose "Pick up in store" as your shipping option. If books are to be delivered to the BBCDC leave a note in the order comments with the child's name and teacher, so we can deliver your books and credit your purchase. If there's anything else we need to know (such as that your purchase contains gifts, or who should be listed as the donor for books purchased from teacher wish lists, for instance), leave that in the comments, too.

Encourage out of town relatives and friends to purchase books during your book fair. We'll ship their books to them and count their purchase toward your book fair. All they need to do is indicate in the comments that their purchase should support SUMC.

Please note, sometimes buyers have difficulty with pop ups when using our online store on a phone, and some browsers work better than others. If you're having trouble completing your purchase, try a computer or a different browser. If you're still having trouble, email us, and we're happy to help complete your purchase.

You're welcome to order any book from Chapters' online store, but if you're overwhelmed by the possibilities, Rev. Mary Kay has listed a few favorites below. Shop the following list for suggestions, or search Chapters' entire online catalog by entering a title or author in the search bar above.

Thanks for supporting the Gather and Grow Campaign!
