Genesis Book Store


Genesis Bookstore is a volunteer-run, non-profit store whose mission is both to serve the worship needs of local parishioners and to be an information and outreach source for visitors.

The Bookstore offers parishioners recorded liturgical music, Bibles, liturgical and spiritual literature, worship supplies (such as Icons, incense, candles and prayer bracelets), and Sacramental supplies (such as Baptismal candles, stefana, stefana cases and neck crosses). There is a selection of books and pamphlets to welcome and assist visitors, catechumens, new members and those seeking to learn more about Orthodoxy.

The Bookstore also provides the Sunday School department with many needed materials.

Most importantly, it serves as a quiet meeting place where many parishioners and visitors gather after the Liturgy. With incense and Liturgical music in the background, individuals can congregate in an intimate atmosphere, discuss theology and inquire about Orthodoxy. Orthodoxy is often very foreign to visitors and it is difficult to explain the intricacies of our Liturgy during the service, but visitors are welcome to come and ask questions at the Bookstore.

Genesis Bookstore proceeds support the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) Funds for Children. 

The Bookstore is loacated in the Hellenic center next to the Cathedral.   It is open after Liturgy on most Sundays. They have an extensive collection of Orthodox Books and religous items. For further information or special requests call Cathy Bowden at (864) 855-9177 or the church office at (864) 233-8531 or email Cathy.
