It is with great reluctance that the Iowa-Missouri Conference has decided they can no longer own and operate the Adventist Book Centers located in multiple locations and Conferences, including the store at the Minnesota Conference office. The Iowa-Missouri Conference had been operating the Minnesota location since March 2014, when Pacific Press stopped managing ABC stores. More information regarding what will happen with the Minnesota Conference ABC will be forthcoming as the Conference Administration and Board of Trustees considers all options.

As a result of the Iowa-Missouri Conference’s decision, There will be a final clearance sale beginning in late August, with further details to come. Additionally, the annual Camp Meeting food sales are presently running until the end of July and the book sales will run until the end of August.
