Come for a Coffee, Pick up a Book, and Stay a While

“Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

(Colossians 3:1-2, NIV)

Things Above is a Christian Bookstore that opened when the owner, Jane Albright, returned home for a visit and found all of the local Christian bookstores she once loved to visit had closed. Jane was taught that the things that make you most upset are the very things you are to do something about!

Jane decided to open Things Above to give people a brick and mortar store where they can come to sit while they feel the pages of books between their fingers and turn the pages without the click of a button

Sometimes, you just need to have the help from a book or Bible… today.

Things Above is more than a Christian Bookstore. It is a place where you will find encouragement through community and a connection with others who share with you this journey of life. The knowledgeable and friendly staff, peaceful atmosphere and wide selection of Christian books all come together to set a table where you can pull up a chair and feast upon Things Above.

Join us on June 27th to see Best Selling Author of The Good and Beautiful You James Bryan Smith  

When I was coaching at Wichita State, I started to attend Chapel Hill Fellowship Church.  James Bryan Smith was a pastor there, and I quickly was drawn to his excellent teaching.  He and his wife , Meghan and I became friends.  It seems Jim was had a great interest in baskets all and I had a great interest in Rich Mullins. 

 Jim had studied extensively under Dallas Willard, and Dallas had challenged him to write a “Curriculum of Christlikeness.”   While I was in Wichita, he invited me to join a group who would go through the “course” he had developed.  So for three years, I studied, practiced the concepts,  and took notes on everything Jim said.  Our small group of people were the guinea pigs for the books he was perfecting: The Good and Beautiful God, The Good and Beautiful Life, and the Good and Beautiful Community.  It is an understatement to say that these totally changed my faith walk! I learned so much, and under his direction, I was transformed and really believe I discovered the truth of Scripture!  Since then, I have taken numerous groups through these books, and I STILL believe everyone should read them in the context of community!

Please join us and have Jim sign a copy of his just released book, the 4th in the series, The Good and Beautiful You.  You will be glad you did. – Jane Albright
