Café Prices Will be Increasing Soon

Dear Grace Family, up to this point, we’ve been paying sales tax but not passing that cost along to the customer. This cost will now be adjusted into the price of our products allowing us to continue to pursue being self-reliant and not impact the General Fund of GBC. Thank you for helping us support our church and help ministry thrive, ... through coffee!
