THE CARPENTERS CUP HAS JUST CELEBRATED ITS 6TH ANNIVERSARY!!! This store started out as a Christian bookstore, selling Bibles, books, Christian gifts and cards, and selling specialty coffees.
Although they sell Bibles and books, Christian gifts, and they still have hot and cold coffees and lattes, Frappuccinos, hot and cold Chai tea lattes, flavored teas, Italian cream, blended lemonades and smoothies, we added selling our own “Cross of Jesus t-shirts, selling chocolate covered strawberries (especially on Valentine’s Day!), making homemade candies at Christmas.
The Carpenters Cup emboss Bibles, offers gift wrapping all year round (and free if the gift is purchased here). They make candy bouquets and now have balloon bouquets and are expanding their personalized gifts to other items.
But while that’s what we’re doing to keep the store open, the ministry portion of the store has also grown. The Carpenters Cup offers a Bible study every Monday morning starting at 10:30 a.m. (and you’re invited), there’s a men’s Bible study every other Saturday at 9 a.m.
With the help of this community, during the Covid shutdown, thousands of meals were not only distributed, but delivered. People keep bringing food and they give it away.
The Box of Blessings outside is frequently replenished and depleted. With your help, they distribute fans and air conditioners, blankets, hats, coats, gloves, socks and homeless bags containing food items and personal care items.
The Carpenters Cup Christian gift and book store brings together the supplies and money you bring to get kids ready for school and put shoes and socks on their feet. They prepare and distribute a free Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving Day. They give out Thanksgiving meal baskets that you bring to them. They help families at Christmas when they need help with gifts and food baskets. The Carpenters Cup located in Butler distributes donations from Arm and Hammer and Giving the Basics. They help collect clothing, household items, furniture and appliances to donate each month (weather permitting).
Thank you for your support over the past 6 years. It has been an honor and a privilege to work alongside you for the greater good. Praying God’s blessings upon you all and may the Carpenters Cup continue to grow.
The Carpenters Cup is located on Bishop Street just west of Dollar Tree on I-49 in Butler. Thank you from the community for all you do.
